Every once in a while someone will bring up a bad decision that I had made in my past. Sometimes the devil will present something that is a reminder of the same thing. Either way these can be a damaging effect on your walk with Christ if you allow it. You see, once we walk with our God it’s really important to stay straight on our path. The devil does not want us to succeed and will use all kinds of tricks in his arsenal to get us to abandon our faith. He loves to remind us that we are not good enough and that we should not continue our journey because we will not persevere. People can be extremely difficult at times to deal with and can be quite rude. They can say things to bring us down and be the most unforgiving when it comes to mistakes whether current or past. The devil loves to play on things like that and will try to get your mind stuck on the matter. That is when we need to rely on our mighty God with prayer and faith. The Bible states that no one is perfect, no not one. We are not out to seek human praises however, we are aiming for God’s. He has already forgiven us as soon as we have asked for it and His love is way better than anything a person can give us. He sent His son Jesus Christ to die for us on the cross so that we could live free from sin. Just because we made a mistake that does not mean that that mistake defines us. We learn from those mistakes, ask for forgiveness and keep on going, not letting anyone or anything stand in our way. When we were kids and fell off our bike did we just give up or did we get back on and try again? Please join me in prayer! Dear heavenly father thank you so much for yet another beautiful day. Thank you for forgiving us for our sins and trespasses Lord. Help us to be better Christians than we were the day before. Lead us guide us be honest when we speak to people have your Holy Spirit moving us so that we can be the best that we can be. In Jesus precious name amen!
