What Does The Bible Says About Making Mistakes

Mistake 8079675438

Being human, we are all susceptible to making mistakes, and the Bible even told us about the errors that we are going to make.

Because God knew that we were going to make various mistakes throughout our life on Earth, he left us with instructions as to how we can redeem ourselves. Proverbs 28:13 He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.

You, cannot cover your mistakes and pretend they are not there, you have to own, confess and recognise them then you can ask for forgiveness. Another way in which we are made to understand the errors of our ideas can be, found in the book of Ephesians 5:8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:

God knew that we were prone to making mistakes the minute we allowed sin into our lives. Our transformation from been perfect was going to be our greatest downfall until we realise that sin is the reason we make so many terrible mistakes.

James 3:2 For in many things, we offend all. If any man offends not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body.

1 Peter 5:6-7 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time. Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.

God does not take joy when we make mistakes. He saw it coming even before you were born. However, the Lord makes provision for us through His grace when we mess things up. His grace provides us with the strength, peace, knowledge, and desire to deal with our weaknesses and strive towards a victorious life in Christ.

He has given us Biblical instructions to lean on when we mess up. The ability to know that we can call on Him during those times and he will hear our supplications and our pleas. Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

God will use your mistakes to help you grow spiritually. Through the gift of the Holy Spirit, we are convicted of our sins not condemned. Satan brings condemnation with regret, shame, and guilt. However, through Christ, we can be forgiven and restored to the right relationship with Him as well as others.
