Great Grace

January 20, 2018

You have two thieves trying to steal your today—the thief of yesterday and the thief of tomorrow. There is joy in the now! Praise Him NOW! There is joy in your NEW! Don’t let yesterday rob you of your joy. Someday is not for you to worry about. You are blessed right now in THIS moment! Don’t worry about tomorrow and don’t live in regret for yesterday. He will meet your needs for tomorrow.

 

God has more grace than your disgrace. It’s not whether you get knocked down, it’s if you will get back up. Resilience is what matters most. Do not allow your mistakes to destroy you. God wants to transform you through your mistakes.

 

Mistakes can become a doorway to possibilities you would not have found if you never made the mistake. You will experience a resurrection. You will come out of it. Nobody is without mistakes. ALL have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.

 

Key Points

 

You may have made mistakes, but you are not alone. You don’t have to be a prisoner to this mistake. Down is not my destiny and God will never give up on me. God has grace for your mistakes.

 

Questions

  1. What was the greatest mistake you have ever made? Get that in your mind, but don’t say it out loud. On a scale from 1-10, with 10 being it still haunts you to this day, and 1 being, you rarely ever think about it, rate your greatest mistake.
  2. What would it take to move it closer to a 1?
  3. Who do you blame the most for this mistake? Yourself, or others?
  4. Can you release this to the Lord, right now and allow Him to use it?
  5. What is the greatest mistake you have made in the last 6 months? Get that in your mind, but don’t say it out loud. On a scale from 1-10, with 10 being it still really bothers you to this day and 1 being, I rarely ever think about it, rate your greatest mistake.
  6. What would it take to move it closer to a 1?
  7. Who do you blame the most for this mistake? Yourself, or others?
  8. Can you release this to the Lord, right now and allow Him to use it?

 

Hidden in every mistake is a portal of possibility. Mistakes are not a prison; they're a pathway to what's next.

 

God will never define you by your mistakes. God has great grace for great mistakes. The prodigal son is not defined by his time away from the father. The devil doesn’t get to define you or name you.

Hell wants to chain you but heaven wants to conform you. God is not going to hold you hostage to your mistakes. God says, “Move on!” God uses mistakes to move us on. God comes with a still, small voice and and gives great grace.

 

Question

  1. Do you ever feel chained to a past mistake? Based on this message, should you?

Final Thoughts

Everyone is going to mess up at some point in their life. But God is always there with His great grace for our mistakes. Confess it! The only people who never make mistakes are the ones who do not try anything. Sometimes we have to take risks, but God always has great grace for our mistakes when we risk everything for Jesus.

 

Grace gives me what I don’t deserve. Mercy holds back what I do deserve. God will not define you by your worst mistake. God is not glorified when we put ourselves down. We have to receive great grace and be carriers of great grace. Our message is a message of reconciliation. We need great grace in our churches and in our nation.
