    God Holds Your Hand When You Stumble!

    You won’t always get it right on your walk with God. NO ONE does! Sometimes you may unintentionally disobey Him, while other times you may find yourself acting in a way that you know is displeasing to Him. Either way, whether it’s from lack of knowledge or the result of peer pressure, there will be times in your life when you simply mess up.

    But God is a merciful God who is full of grace. He loves you so much that He’ll forgive you when you’re disobedient. In fact, He loves you so much that even when you stumble, He won’t let you fall completely. The Bible says this:

    The LORD makes firm the steps of the one who delights in Him; though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the LORD upholds him with His hand. — Psalms 37:23-24.

    This means that when you trust and love God, He won’t leave or desert you, even if you’ve made a mistake! After you repent, He wipes your slate clean!

    However, when you ask God to forgive you, it’s not a good idea to continue to engage in the same negative behavior over and over again, thinking that it’s okay because God will keep forgiving you. It’s really important that you don’t take advantage of God’s grace. Although God is faithful and will forgive you for your actions, He also disciplines those whom He loves. God expects you to repent for your behavior.

    There are two steps to repentance:

    1. Ask God to forgive you of your sin.
    2. Choose to turn away from the behavior so that you don’t continue to displease God.

    If you’re worried about something that you’ve done in the past, ask God for forgiveness and work on changing the behavior that’s displeasing to Him. One of the many wonderful things about God is that not only will He forgive you, He’ll even help you change the negative behavior. As long as you trust Him, He’ll hold your hand. Each time you stumble, He’ll pick you up and wipe you clean again. This goes for ANYTHING, no matter how big or small. God loves you and delights in seeing you happy!

    Check back soon to discover five things to do to get back on path with God.
