Saying #27 - Though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again. Proverbs 24:16. 7---that perfect number. Be of good courage! Sincere souls fall in this life over the stones of adversity in our path more than people every acknowledge on social media. Pick yourself up and go on your merry way with great care and even faster speed.
Gill calls the adversity to bear up:
reduced to great straits
violent persecution from men.
Our times are in His Hands.
Afflictions and prosperity both appointed by God.
This too shall pass.
Afflictions are but a day, but a short time, and yet we want to faint under them.
Especially when they are of sheer number:
done to us in anger
no view of pardon on the horizon
under the hidings of God's face
slow painful deliverance.
May we not be remiss in getting wisdom when sinking.
