How many times have you wished you could redo an action you took? Take back words you have said? Or wished that you had done things differently in a lot of ways? Too many times I have wished I could go back in time to do some things differently. Most of those things I regret were done with the best of intentions at the time but it just turned out all wrong. I know that there are times I have had disagreements with people and my words did not come out quite right. The Holy Spirit always lets me know immediately that happens and convicts me of it.
Whenever I find myself in that position, I ask God for forgiveness and I pray. I ask God to help make it right. If an apology is required, I give the other person. If it is an action I can’t take back, I pray for God to make it right. Only God can take bad situations and bring good out of it. The Bible is clear on this:
“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”
Even our mistakes are covered under this verse, all things is what the Bible said. As a believer, take advantage of this today and tell God to help you bring the good out of the mistakes of your life. This is why He is our Saviour.
Lean on HIM.
