“Though I have fallen, I will rise. Though I sit in darkness, the Lord will be my light.” (Micah 7: 8, New International Version)
We can rise again. We can see the light. We can do more than survive. We can overcome, progress, and prosper.
This verse is an example of not giving up. It is a man’s choice not to let the world’s challenges and maybe even his own fears and doubts, keep him down and in the dark. But the heart of this message is vital to hear. For it is not by sheer strength of will that he accomplishes this new outlook and the blessings it brings.
The Lord is his light and ours. We rise again and see clearly and with renewed expectancy and joy and gratitude, because we rely on God. Humanly, it may seem we are small and failing. But, we aren’t mere humans out on our own trying to make it, to endure, one day at a time. We are God’s own ideas and His beloved. We are one with God and have His own power, light, control, vision, and comfort at hand to rely on.
God’s Truth and Life is with us and for us. God is Love. His resources are beyond our human comprehension, but forever available, right, and healing.
We may fall, but God will lift us up. We may be fearful and confused and depressed, but God will brighten our hearts, clear our thinking, and show us the way of His lively and lovely Life.
