Topic: DEALING WITH MISTAKES
Text: Proverbs 16:25.
25: There is a way that seems right to a man and appears straight before him, but at the end of it is the way of death.
Mistake is defined as a wrong action attributable to bad judgement, ignorance and inattention. Two other words function in the place of mistake: error and fault.
Many people would have attained greatness but for mistakes, mistake has caused many people life’s fortune, good amount of money has been lost because of mistake.
Please note that every man’s life is designed by the creator to be glorious, it is not God’s intention to make anyone miserable, everyone is given a good life, God is fair to all, how do I know? Colossians 3:25
For he who deals wrongfully will [reap the fruit of his folly and] be punished for his wrongdoing. And [with God] there is no partiality [no matter what a person’s position may be, whether he is the slave or the master]. Amplified.
First of all you must understand that God didn’t give anyone better chances than you. The fact that someone is richer than you doesn’t give him or her better chances than you, you must understand that riches and wealth are relative to time, a poor man today can be rich tomorrow if he would avoid costly mistakes in his life, vise versa.
Just as birds fly in the sky and no one of them gets to disturb each other likewise God allows human beings to function in their space without getting to disturb themselves. The main issue here is the decision everyone takes, your decision goes a long way to affect your life, mistakes are products of decisions, and this is propel by either bad judgement or ignorance.
Bad judgement, ignorance, and inattention are responsible for the down fall of many people, your opinion about a matter that affects your life will go a long way in your destiny, having a wrong opinion about issues that bother on your life will automatically lead you to taking decision that will damage your destiny.
I once met a lady who told me, ‘ there is no point worrying oneself about being a graduate since many graduates are jobless ‘, I was able to counsel her and she went to university. That judgement alone could have damaged her life and she might forever regret it.
Having shallow knowledge about a matter that bothers on destiny will lead you to taking wrong decisions, MISTAKE. let me break the word MISTAKE down: MIS TAKE, missing the take, when you miss what you are suppose to take it will fall on the floor.
Daily decisions go a long way to affect your life and destiny, you will not move forward if you’re not careful about your decisions. Life gets better when a man takes steps in right direction, making mistake is taking the wrong direction.
I will share more on this in part 2, but it is important I drop this here; waiting upon the Lord every morning by praying and studying his word guides your heart from taking wrong decisions. God bless you.
* Guide my heart oh Lord in Jesus name.
