WORD FOR TODAY. DEALING WITH MISTAKES IN LIFE

WORD FOR TODAY. DEALING WITH MISTAKES IN LIFE

But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness.” 1 John 1:9 NLT

In Numbers 20:6-1, we read about Moses’ determination once again overriding God’s command. He struck a rock instead of following God’s instructions to command the rock to pour out water.

This disobedience brought consequences. God did not allow him to enter the Promised Land. “But the Lord said to Moses and Aaron, ‘Because you did not trust me enough to demonstrate my holiness to the people of Israel, you will not lead them into the land I am giving them!’” (Numbers 20:6-12 NLT).

But despite his mistakes, Moses did not give up nor did God give up on him. He was a great leader and followed God faithfully until they reached the Promised Land.

We all let our determination to have things our way interfere with obeying God at times. But it’s important to remember that God doesn’t give up on us – and neither should we. Today’s scripture reminds us what to do. If we confess, he will forgive and cleanse. And then we need to follow Moses’ example – to move on.

Don’t allow your failures to destroy your hope, your motivation to become and do all God has planned for you. Turn your selfish determination into a determination to grow in your relationship with God . . . and with others.

HAVE A BLESSED DAY!!!!
