Mistakes Changed into Miracles by The Grace of God (Evening)

FOOD FOR THE SOUL

2 Corinthians 5:11-21

RHEMA

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

Although David was called ‘a man after God’s heart’ and was a great king, he was not free from mistakes. Because of committing adultery with Bathsheba and killing Uriah, David had to endure heavy consequences. Her son, who was conceived by Bathsheba, suffered a plague. And David’s efforts to ask God for his son’s salvation were not granted. God showed the consequences by taking the child. What he did was amazing. He didn’t just humble himself, admit, and fix all his mistakes before God. But with a big heart, he also ACCEPTED THE CONSEQUENCES OF GOD AND WANTED TO STRUGGLE TO RISE AGAIN. It is recorded in the Bible, after the death of his son, David immediately got up, changed clothes, and bowed down and worshiped and praised God. And God, who saw all that David was doing, bestowed another son for David. The very great and very anointed son, who we know as King Solomon. How faithful and just God is. David’s mistakes in the past, BY THE GRACE OF GOD, ALSO TURNED INTO A BIG BLESSING in his life.

Just like the youngest son who came home in the story prodigal son. When he wanted to come to his father, admit and settle his mistakes, he received so many good things, miracles, and blessings. He was no longer lacking, but lived happily and was abundant in the assurance of his father. All because of the immense love and grace he received after his conversion.

And for us, that is also what God will do. Maybe we still have to accept the consequences of our mistakes in the past. It could be that something is still missing. But when God finds us willing to humble ourselves, be encouraged, and want to struggle to get back up again, HIS GRACE IS MORE THAN ENOUGH TO GIVE US A NEW LIFE AND POUR US WITH GOODNESS, even MIRACLES. He is a God who is truly loyal and fair to His children and awaits us to come to finish our past. Open heart, stop listening to intimidation, and get it over with. Blessings and miracles await us right there. Hallelujah!
