What Do You Do When You Trip?

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever found yourself in the wrong place at the wrong time doing the wrong thing?  You knew what you were doing was ungodly but for some reason you continued doing it.  In spite of the repercussions, you decided to proceed in your act.  Have you ever said, “I will never do that again” but found yourself doing it again?  Your words sounded sincere but your heart and mindset had not changed.  You had everyone around you believing a change was about to occur, but it never did.  Have you ever had family and friends tell you nothing good would come out of you?  With no hesitation, they looked right in your eyes and attempted to kill your dreams.  Have you ever had more enemies than friends and more questions than answers?

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  Life will often put you in uncomfortable situations.  There are times when you find yourself involved in discussions or engaged in acts that you know could tamper your anointing.  While you believe it is harmless, the long-term effects could pose a greater burden than you ever expect.  My friend, What Do You Do When You Trip?  I am not talking about the all out ‘fall,’ but what do you do when your footsteps stumble?  Many people never realize, all falls happen after a trip.  It is the trips of life that cause many Believers to give up.  It is the trips of life that expose our weaknesses.  The Bible declares in Isaiah 8:15 - And many among them shall stumble, and fall, and be broken, and be snared, and be taken.  Understand, anyone can mimic an act but no one can mimic an anointing.  While people attempt to do what God has called you to do, if the anointing is not upon them their performance will be just that.

My brother, my sister, to trip means to make a mistake or false step; to catch the foot against something so as to stumble.  So I ask you again, What Do You Do When You Trip?  What do you do when you do what you said you would never do?  What do you do when you find yourself stumbling into sin?  It is during these times when we must admit to ourselves that we are nothing without the Lord Jesus Christ.  As long as we think we can do it ourselves, we will continue to trip and eventually fall.  The Bible declares in John 11:10 - But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him.  Beloved, now is not the time for you to walk around proud and boastful (Proverbs 16:18).  At the point of life when you notice yourself tripping, repent and ask the Lord to guide your steps.  Prayer for Today: Father, I have tripped enough.  Please forgive me.  Orde my steps, in the name of Jesus … Amen!

Scripture Reading for Today: Romans 3:23
