There is a Chinese proverb that says, "Failing is not falling down but refusing to get up." When we fail or fall, we can learn from our mistakes. However, we need to be willing to accept the correction or discipline that helps us learn!
God does not want to see us fail. He wants what is best for us, but sometimes we don't listen. We may go astray, trying to figure things out on our own. In order to get us back on track, we may experience God's correction or discipline. When He provides this discipline, it is out of love. He is helping us to get back up from our failures! We need to listen to Him and embrace all the help and discipline He provides!
When you fail, accept the correction and discipline provided by God so you can get back up!
Thank You for watching over me and for providing the correction and discipline I need throughout my life. Help me to hear and follow Your loving discipline so I can get up and work for Your Kingdom. In Jesus I pray, amen.
