I have made enough mistakes in my life for both me and you. I have made mistakes concerning finances, family, and faith that could have been my undoing in this lifetime. And if it had not been for Jesus, I would have been surely cut off!
But thanks be to the God for His mercy and His grace. When you turn to Him and His Word, He makes even your mistakes prosper! Don’t believe me? Check out Psalms 1:1-3:
(1) Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. (2) But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. (3) And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
I like that! Whatsoever! Unqualified! Because I trust in Him and delight in His Word, whatsoever (that meansÂ everything, y’all) I put my hands to will prosper.
Now, don’t get it twisted, you cannot knowingly do wrong and expect God to prosper that! But if you are meditating (studying) and delighting in (loving) His Word, that very Word will keep you from doing something really sideways!
Just like God told the Prophet Isaiah (Isaiah 1:19), if you’re willing and obedient, you will eat the good of the land! If we delight ourselves in God and in His Word, we will experience His promised best! If we will confess and repent of our sins, God is faithful and just to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9)!
God is the God that binds and heals all wounds. Even when they are self-inflicted! Hallelujah!
