A Righteous Man Falls Seven Times, and Rises Up Again

Read

 Proverbs 24:16

For a righteous man falls seven times, and rises again, but the wicked stumble in time of disaster and collapse. (AMP)

For a righteous man falls seven times and rises up again; but the wicked are overthrown by calamity. (WEB)

For though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again, but the wicked stumble when calamity strikes.  (NIV)

Reflect

Meditate and think about the scriptural text you just read. What does the Living Word speak to you?  Read and repeat the text to yourself.  Memorize it. Allow it to sink into you.

Respond

Respond with worship, adoration, and thankfulness to the Lord for speaking to you through His Word. Ask Him to reveal how you can apply it to your life.

Rest

Wait on the Lord. Rest in Him. Abide in Him. Contemplate what He has spoken through His holy Word.
