Morning Thought: Get back up again; God is not through with you. The first time David attempted to bring the Ark of the Covenant into his city—he failed. His failure was so complete that someone died in his care. David was angry, depressed, afraid and unwilling to try again. But then, he waited on the Lord—and Yahweh taught him his ways and healed his soul. He got back up again and his second try was a success. Like David, it’s time for God’s people to arise again. “For a righteous man falls seven times, and rises again, But the wicked stumble in time of calamity” (Proverbs 24:16, NASB).
