Yesterday I ministered to over 200 inmates – many are repeat offenders. One young man said â€œI keep making the same mistakes. Oftentimes, Iâ€™ve blown it so many times. Iâ€˜ve had so many setbacks. I donâ€™t see how I could ever get to where God wants me to be.â€
Can I remind you, our mistakes arenâ€™t that powerful. Our mistakes arenâ€™t too big for our God. Heâ€™s not up in the heavens shaking His head saying, â€œI never dreamed they would do that. Theyâ€™ve ruined My plan.â€ No, God knows every mistake we would ever make. He knows every wrong turn, and Heâ€™s already prepared a new route for us. He already has your escape figured out.
Today, God knows the end from the beginning. If youâ€™ve made some mistakes, the good news is that He has already planned a way to get you back on track! Just come to Him with an open and humble heart. Let Him wash you clean and make you new again. Your mistakes arenâ€™t bigger than your God. He loves you and has an awesome plan for your life!
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”(Jeremiah 29:11, NKJV)
Pray With Me
Yahweh, thank You for loving me and accepting me beyond all of my mistakes. Father, thank You that the blood of Jesus cleanses me of every sinful mistake and makes me new. God, beginning today, I will consistently remind myself that my God is bigger than my mistakes and my problems. God, have Your way as I submit every area of my life to You, in Jesusâ€™ Name! Amen.
