Micah 7:8 Do not gloat over me, my enemies! For though I fall, I will raise again. Though I sit in darkness, the Lord will be my light.
We will fall sometimes and we will sit in darkness sometimes. Why? Because we are human and we do things that separate us from God. Because we live in this world where there are so many people separated from God, where Satan tries all the time to keep us from God. What matters is how we spend that time! When we fall God will pick us back up if we go to Him and ask for forgiveness. We may spend time suffering the consequences for what we have done, but God will help us get through them. When we are surrounded by darkness if we look to God to be our light, to guide us we will rise up out of the darkness like a mighty ship!
As I wrote this I was reminded of a movie, and I can't remember which one... I just remember a couple of soldiers backed into a corner with no chance, it looked like there was no hope at all. Then a fully armed helicopter rose up behind them as the stood on the edge of a cliff and fought their battle for them. When we keep our eyes on God in the mist of our great battles God will rise up behind us as mighty as the helicopter in that movie and fight our battle for us. We just have to keep our eyes on God at all times, even when we fall, even when we are surrounded by darkness. When we do we are never alone!!
