Today Reminder - 29 May 2013 (Mistakes)

A reminder for today
Then David confessed to Nathan, "I have sinned against the LORD." Nathan replied, "Yes, but the LORD has forgiven you, and you won't die for this sin. (2 Samuel 12:13)

David did a terrible thing by taking Uriah’s wife and ordering Joab, the commander of his army, to place Uriah at the area where the battle was the fiercest. Uriah died and David married his wife. This made God very angry at David.

David is such an awesome example of a pure heart for God, yet he too slipped and fell under the deception of the enemy. The enemy saw a weakness that they could exploit in David and used it to try and bring him down. Unfortunately David’s love for God was greater than his own weakness and his repentance brought forgiveness.

My dear friend, the enemy is constantly seeking your downfall and will do anything to destroy you. Do not let a mistake on your side bring separation between you and God, but instead let a mistake bring you closer and make you seek God more intensely. A humble repenting heart is more valuable than a stubborn grief stricken one.

Come and let us seek God’s forgiveness for our mistakes and try harder to withstand the enemy’s deceptions. You are way too valuable to loose, because of a mistake you made. I pray that the Lord will strengthen you against the enemy and protect you from its claws.

Have and awesome day dear friend of Jesus
