Funny thing about being a Christian—life tends to knock you down just as often as anyone else. Perhaps more so. Jesus did promise us tribulation, after all. (see John 16:33)
I think there might be two different kind of falls. First, the circumstances we can’t avoid. Life tries us or people attack us, and there’s not a thing we can do about it. Second, the things we fall into because we weren’t staying close to Jesus. Sinful traps of this world and the devil that we could have avoided.
Either way, we fall, and sometimes we end up crawling because we think there’s no way we’re getting back to our feet.
But that’s not true.
In the Bible, the number seven represents perfection or completion. Take at look at this verse:
For a righteous man may fall seven times
And rise again,
But the wicked shall fall by calamity.
