Highs and Lows

Sometimes it’s just hard to do and say the right things at the right time. As humans we are limited to emotional highs and lows. At times, deception will integrate into our perception, which skews our thoughts, actions, and ultimately our judgement. Yes, we are flawed creatures hence our need for a savior, grace, mercy, forgiveness, revival, renewal, and restoration. When we make mistakes, we often worry that we’ve fallen out of God’s will. You’ve probably heard people talk about “missing out on God’s perfect will.” And now you’re afraid you’re permanently stuck with God’s plan B. On the contrary, God’s will for you is right where you’re standing, whether in the sunshine of your hopes, or the storm of your regrets. Beloved of God, if you’re living right now through the consequences of mistakes, whether sinful or not, God is still a forgiving heavenly Father. So when your mistakes feel like a 1,000 pounds strapped to your back, remember God’s forgiveness, grace, and mercy. Remember His faithfulness to you, His sovereignty over you, and providence for you. Remember that He has made a covenant promise to work all that out for your good and His glory!
