I have messed up a lot in life. The amazing thing for me is though I make mistakes and fall on my face, how many more times the Lord shows up – His grace and love fill me back up to continue my journey.
What did we hear as a child growing up? “When you fall, dust yourself off and keep going.” It’s not if you fall, it’s when.
As a believer in Christ, I think we should ask ourselves this:
What do you do when you make mistakes and fall?
What do you do? Isolate? Take your pick of bad habits and put them here _______________. What does it say below though? The Lord DELIGHTS in you! He LOVES your heart! And the most important of all, He has got YOUR back when you make those mistakes. He’s keeping you up because of His love and grace for you, and holding you up with His hand.
I experienced that yesterday, and was humbled and in awe of how much God showed up. My prayer for you is to know you’re not perfect. You are absolutely going to mess up. God knows this, and when you do He’s going to uphold you. My prayer is that you can know that the Lord delights in you for who you are, where you are at right now.
Bless you today!
New King James Version (NKJV)
23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord,
And He delights in his way.
24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down;
For the Lord upholds him with His hand.
