Right Back Up

By Linda Tancs

Setbacks are hard, but they should be expected (John 16:33). After all, the enemy comes at us with the aim that we lose our hope (John 10:10). That’s why it’s so important to recover from disappointment as soon as possible (2 Corinthians 4:8-9). I’m reminded of that when I hear these words from a popular song: “Knock me down. It’s all in vain. I’ll get back on my feet again.” The devil is a defeated foe; you already have the victory (1 John 5:4). So get right back up.
