Mistakes

sadHow many times have you made the same mistake? Why keep making the same mistake when you know the outcome is going to be the same? Why not actually learn the lesson that God is trying to teach you, and plant it deep in your heart?

“Therefore lift your drooping hands and strengthen your weak knees, and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be put out of joint but rather be healed.” Hebrews 12:12-14

Take those lessons, and learn to make straight paths. Walk those paths with Him, and you won’t continue to make those mistakes. God knows your heart. Your true heart. Not the heart that you think you should listen to. The human heart has an incredible capacity to lie to us, unless we are constantly seeking His face. The human heart will tell you that “It feels right, so how can it be sin?” The human heart will tell you that “If it makes you happy, do it. You deserve happiness.” Those are the exact sentiments that will send you down the long and winding road to hell. There are many people who live by the creed “Better to ask forgiveness than permission”. That is a great way to continue making life altering bad choices. If that is how you think, rest assured, God will not be blessing you or your actions any time soon.

If you lift your hands to God, if you strengthen your weak knees by spending time on them, if you take His word and guidance and make straight paths to follow, He promises to fix what is broken in you. I think that is a wonderful promise.
