What if I told you that ALL of your failures – everything you ever have done, or will do wrong – have already been forgiven by God!?! It’s true! When Jesus gave His life for you at the cross, He bore the penalty for every sin you’d commit over the course of your entire life. He paid the price for your complete forgiveness. Because of what He has done, God can and has forgiven your every mistake. Your part? To simply believe that you have been forgiven, and receive that forgiveness!
God’s grace is greater than any mistake you’ll ever make! He has promised to never be angry with or rebuke you (Is 54:9). He isn’t counting your sins against you (2 Cor 5:19), and in fact no longer even remembers them (Heb 8:12)! He has removed them from you as far as the east is from the west (Ps 103:12). If He isn’t holding your mistakes against you, why should you hold them against yourself?
Jesus lived the perfect life you could never live. If you have accepted Him as Savior, then when God looks at you, He sees Jesus’ perfection covering you, instead of your failures. Begin to see yourself the way God sees you!
Don’t let guilt, shame, and regret hold you back from living the amazing, abundant life God has for you. Whenever you mess up, remind yourself that God indeed has forgiven you because of what Christ has done. Accept the forgiveness He is holding out to you, and carry on with all He has in store for you!
