The old adage says, “You can’t keep a good man down.” I think it needs to be tweaked to say, “You can’t keep a godly person down.” At least that’s what Scripture points out to us in Proverbs 24:16. I read it again just today, and I love it!
It reminds me of the chorus in the Family Force 5 song, “Sweep The Leg,” that goes like this…
You can’t stop me
You can’t drop me
You can’t block me
You can’t break me
You can’t shake me
Don’t make me
C,mon! If you belong to Christ, and you’ve been knocked down… get up again. The fact that the writer of the Proverb said, “a godly person may trip seven times,” is significant. In Jewish writing, seven was the number of completion… the ultimate. In other words, a godly person may be completely tripped up by some situation, but they are going to get up every time and end up victorious because they cannot be stopped!
Boom! There it is… Godly people, don’t worry about what has happened to you. It may have knocked you down, but it hasn’t knocked you out. Get up again, and just keep getting up. You’re going to win!
Now let’s get out there and have a terrific Tuesday, people!
