Have you ever done something and wished you could take it back so that it did not happen? I am sure many of us could answer “Yes” to that question. We make mistakes it is a part of life, sometimes those mistakes are big ones and sometimes they are small.
The most important thing is, that we learn from our mistakes so that we do not continue to make the same ones.
This is why I love so much the message of the Gospel, because it shows us that even though we made a lot of mistakes, God made a way in which we could be forgiven, without having to calculate every wrong deed and comparing it to every good deed. By recognizing that we our sinners that need a savior and then understanding that our savior paid the price for our sin that we COULD NOT afford, we have positioned ourselves to be forgiven. Then also, by understanding that now we are RECONNECTED back to our creator and can now be directed by his Holy Spirit, so that we do not keep making the same mistakes, we are on the road back to perfection.
God is so gracious with us and allows us to go through things based on our choices and is always there to pick us up when we fall.
One of the few good kings in the Bible was Hezekiah, he was the only person in the Bible apart from Jesus who knew the year in which he was going to die, because when he was sick and he prayed to God and God told him he was going to give him another 15 years ( 2 Kings 20)
However even though Hezekiah was a good king, he still made mistakes and a big one was when he invited visitors from a foreign land into his house and he showed them everything, the Bible says there was nothing that he had which he did not show them. Obviously there was a lot of pride in what he did, trying to impress people, but the result of that was God told him through a prophet that in the future all that he had was going to be taken away from him. So even though God is able to forgive us of our mistakes, there are still consequences as a result of our actions.
One of the things my Pastor says is: “Sin will take you further than you intended to go, keep you longer than you were prepared to stay and cost you more than you were prepared to pay”
So as believers we should not take God’s grace for granted and understand that even though he is a God of grace, he is also a God of judgment.
King David made mistakes that cost him the life of his son and yet David was identify by God as being a man after his own heart.
King Solomon was the wisest King that ever lived and yet he fell into idolatry because of the many wises he had.
So if we ever try living a life without the direction of the Holy Spirit, God will be there to pick us up then we fall,
we will fall.
Parallel Business Principles
Even in business we can ask God to get involved with us and direct us. If there is any aspect of your business that you are struggling with, ask God to give you the wisdom in that area. However we have to recognize that God knows everything, so IF you are not doing the things that you should be doing in your business and yet you continue to ask God for help in that specific area, The Bible says” Be not decided God is not mocked, whatever a man sows that is what he will reap”
God is a God of grace, however there are consequences for our actions.
