I made a mistake. I lost something I really need and if not found will cause me a lot of work. I’m sad, angry with myself and a little anxious.
As I stewed in this emotional hodgepodge, The Holy Spirit reminded of something I wrote in my new book. “God even redeems the mistakes we make.” Do I really believe this tonight?
I feel like my students tonight. The Holy Spirit has been teaching me how God Resurrects, Redeems, and Restores for my new book. Now I am confronted with the test.
What is the test? Do I truly believe what I am asking others to believe? Can I walk in peace and joy even if this item is never found, knowing God can resurrect this situation? Do I trust God will redeem this mistake I made? Do I believe God will restore what was lost and put me in a better position? You see if I truly believe God resurrects, redeems, and restores, I will walk in joy, forgive myself, and this anxiousness will turn into peace.
To be honest, I’m failing the test at this moment. But tomorrow is a new day and the good thing about God is that He remediates and allows us to retake the test as many times as needed. I am going to ACE this test. I will experience His redemption. I will see His restoration, but I will walk in joy and peace as He brings it to pass. Yes, I’m going to ACE this test!
“Therefore, say to the children of Israel, ‘I am the LORD, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will free you from their bondage. I will redeem and rescue you with an outstretched (vigorous, powerful) arm and with great acts of judgment [against Egypt].”
