For the LORD is good; His mercy is everlasting, and His truth endures to all generations. (Psalm 100:5, NKJV)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
When you make a mistake, unfortunately, the critics and naysayers come out of the woodwork. People will tell you, Youre all washed up. Its too late. If you wear that label, it will keep you from the amazing future God has in store. God says, My mercy is bigger than any mistake. God says, I can still get you to your destiny. God says, I will give you beauty for those ashes. Ill pay you back double for the unfair things that have happened. You wouldnt be alive unless God had another victory in your future. Why dont you take off the washed up label? Take off the failure, guilty, condemned labels and put on some new labels: redeemed, restored, forgiven, bright future, new beginning.
Always remember, you have been made in the image of Almighty God. God did not make any mistakes. You are the perfect size. You have the right personality, the right gifts, the right looks, the right skin color. You are not an accident. God designed you precisely for the race that is laid out for you. You are fully equipped for this life, and His mercy is greater than any mistake you could make. Embrace the truth and the victory He has in store for your future!
A Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for Your mercy. Thank You for equipping me for everything I need in this life. I choose to renounce old labels and forgive those who have hurt me. I set my eyes on You, Jesus, the Author and Finisher of my faith in Jesus name. Amen.
