Everyone makes mistakes, they are inevitable. When we make mistakes in life, there are three main things that we need to do:
1. Ask for forgiveness.
2. Receive God’s mercy.
3. Move forward with your life. Let it go and press ahead.
Many people today are still beating themselves up over something they did last year, or five years ago. They’ve asked God to forgive them a thousand times, but can’t let it go.
Don’t go around living depressed, defeated and feeling unworthy. If that’s you, today realise the price has already been paid. The first time you asked God to forgive you, He forgave you. Now you’ve got to receive God’s mercy and press ahead. That mistake did not change who you are to God. My children have never once gotten up in the morning as a Patrick, and then done something wrong and gone to bed that night with a different surname, they are still my kids.
Today, no matter what you’ve done, you’re still God’s children. You may have made mistakes, but because of the blood of Christ, you are still your Father’s child. You are still the apple of God’s eye. You are still His most prized possession. God may not be pleased with every action, but He is pleased when you receive His forgiveness and mercy and move ahead by faith!
“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”(1 John 1:9, ESV)
Pray With Me
Yahweh, thank You for the blood of Yahshua, the Christ which cleanses me from all my mistakes and unrighteousness. Father, thank You for forgiving me and restoring me and not casting me aside. God, I have decided to forget the past, letting go of guilt and shame, and moving forward into all that You have prepared for me, in Christ’s Name! Amen.
