SCRIPTURE: Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein. Jeremiah 6:16.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Every time there is a “mis-take” where possible, there can be a “re-take”.
In life, when people are married to mistakes, they continue to deliver regrets. There are people who want to remain married to their mistakes. They said to themselves: “I have already made the mistake. I must remain in it. What would people say if I made a U-turn? Will they not say that I am confused?”
And so, they remain in what is wrong and continue to deliver regrets for life. That will never be your portion, in Jesus’ Name.
Beloved, refuse to be married to your mistakes. Always be sensitive to the leading of the Spirit.
For example, you are to go on a journey, and at the motor park, you already paid the bus fare, but suddenly you have a leading in your spirit that you are not meant to go on that journey. So you ask the driver to give you back your money, but he refuses to refund your money because, according to him, you have taken another person’s space. In that case, you don’t say, “I can’t return home like that. Let me just go on the journey since I have paid the fare”. That is disaster!
What to do is, make a U-turn. This is because you don’t know what is ahead of you that God is trying to shield you from. It is better to lose the bus fare than to lose your life before time. That will not be your portion, in Jesus’ Name. So, it takes meekness to make a U-turn.
Beloved, every time there is a “mis-take” where possible, there can be a “re-take”. If you “mis-take” it, you can “re-take” it. If you missed the “take”, you can repeat the “take”. Don’t be sentimentally attached to any wrong or mistaken course of action simply because you have gone far in it; make a U-turn when necessary.
REMEMBER THIS: Every time there is a “mis-take” where possible, there can be a “re-take”.
1. Retrace your steps when you take wrong steps in life.
2. Always be sensitive in the Spirit to avoid taking wrong steps.
PRAYER: Lord, I ask for the grace to correct my past mistakes. Help me to be sensitive to Your leading, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
