YOUR MISTAKE IS NOT THE END
Danielle woke up in the middle of the night while I worked. After a while, she mentioned that she was hungry. There was a cup of beverage that Olive only took a sip out of some hours earlier. I offered that to her. As she drank, she wanted to move her leg and it all poured away. It pained me as she quietly narrated what happened. I saw the look in her eyes.
I had to go prepare another cup of beverage for her. When I offered it to her, I said to her, “This is warmer and you will like it”. The initial one was already cold. At that very moment, I had a little “proud dad” moment. I was not happy the beverage poured. I told her to be careful next time but I was more than happy to see my daughter satisfied also.
God is not excited when we make mistakes but God’s love for you is more than the mistakes you have made. If you will be open to showing him where things went wrong, He is more than willing to get things better.
For instance, the prodigal son came back home after a wasteful spree and some hard lessons from a pig’s sty, yet the Father had great robes at home for a lost son.
But the father said to his servants, bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet:
Luke 15:22 KJV
God never runs out of supplies. We only keep running out of His presence. The devil delights in using schemes to keep people away from fellowship with the Lord.
Do not be attracted to what looks like a beautiful alternative. Do not eat a fruit while you lose a garden. It is a device.
No matter how messed up you are, the arm of the father is always open. His outstretched arm is wide enough to heal and to provide.
When a man walks out of your life, be rest assured in God that a better man will walk into your life.
You are not hopeless. You are not helpless. There is a host of love and grace in the father’s presence. Do not stay far from His presence.
