Jeremiah 1:5: Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.
Before you were born, God knew you. Nothing you’ve done, or are going to do is going to take God by surprise. When God calls you, He already knows your weaknesses, imperfections and past and future sins and mistakes. “God doesn’t call the qualified, He qualifies the Called.”
Romans 8:28-30: And we know that God works all things together for the good of those who love Him, who are called according to His purpose. For those God foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brothers. And those He predestined, He also called; those He called, He also justified; those He justified, He also glorified.
God Works In All Things, and if you love God, everything will work out for your own good; even your mistakes and failures. Mistakes can be lessons learned and knowledge and wisdom you can pass on to others.
If you learn from your mistakes, then they will not only be mistakes, but they will be lessons learned. If you’ve read the Bible you will see that they were all flawed, imperfect human beings as we all are. Paul murdered Christians and Abraham committed adultery and got a child outside of his marriage with another woman. Most of the people we read about had weaknesses, imperfections, made mistakes and experienced failures.
“Jacob was a cheater, Peter had a temper, David had an affair, Noah got drunk, Jonah ran from God, Paul was a murderer, Gideon was insecure, Miriam was a gossip, Martha was a worrier, Thomas was a doubter, Sara was impatient, Elijah was moody, Moses stuttered, Abraham was old,… and Lazarus was dead. God doesn’t call the qualified, He qualifies the CALLED!”
God’s Grace is Stronger than your mistakes. His Grace is Sufficient and Unfailing, and His power is made perfect in your weaknesses. A mistake humbles us, it reminds us that we are all human, and that we are not perfect. It reminds us of the importance of being merciful and loving towards one another, because we need mercy and grace, just as much as anyone else around us.
The consequence of sin is death. Be Grateful for that God has shown you the consequences you could have experienced, but was Merciful, Graceful and Loving enough to spare you and save you from. Praise God and Thank Jesus, for the sacrifice that was made for our sins, and for the Love, Mercy and Grace that has been shown unto us.
Today is a New Day and a New Chance to be better and to do better than what you’ve done before. Let go of yesterday and your mistakes and failures, learn from them and move on. Trust in God’s Grace and embrace this new day, and the New Chance You’ve Been Given.
2 Corinthians 12:9-10: But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
Romans 8:31-34: What then shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son but gave Him up for us all, how will He not also, along with Him, freely give us all things? Who will bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is there to condemn us? For Christ Jesus, who died, and more than that was raised to life, is at the right hand of God—and He is interceding for us.
