11 Bible Verses About Rising Up
What do you do when life has knocked you down?
You have two options:
1. Stay down.
2. Get back up.
I’ve been knocked down time and time again. Sometimes it feels like I’m being kicked while I’m down. That’s just part of life. We’re all going to get knocked down, but we need to make the choice to get back up.
Getting up won’t be easy. In fact, it can be one of the most difficult decisions we make. Especially when we know there’s a chance of falling or getting knocked down again.
The Bible offers us encouragement for every season of life, including the times when we’re down and out. There are countless stories throughout the Scriptures of people rising up. Our entire faith is based upon the fact that Jesus rose from the grave on the third day.
Jesus conquered death and the grave and He gives us the power to conquer the challenges we face.
