God Is There

When You've Made Mistakes - Greg Hartnett

Jul. 23

Sometimes smart people do dumb things; wise people do foolish things; good people do bad things; godly people do sinful things. The older I get, the more tempted I am to think that God may just be done with me. Will God really forgive me AGAIN? When you fail and fall into sin, it is time to turn toward God, not away from God. You need humility and forgiveness, not shame and guilt. God will forgive. It amazes me that David is called a man after God’s own heart even with this shameful, murderous event as part of his life story. I think this Psalm reveals why. God never expected sinlessness and a mistake-free life; but God expects and responds to humble hearts that turn to Him.
