Beating Myself Up Over Mistakes: Are You Beating Yourself Up Over Mistakes You’ve Made?
Dear Friends, I have made many mistakes. I have made many unwise decisions. I have sinned and fallen short. I have done things that I deeply regret and wish I could go back and undo. I have said things I wish I could unsay. I have done things that I am ashamed of, and made decisions that in retrospect, were not the best. I have beaten myself up over my many mistakes, because in most cases, I should have known better.
This morning, I am being reminded again and again to not be hard on myself!
I am being reminded to stop criticizing myself!
I am being reminded that God doesn’t condemn us!
God is not lying when he says that NOTHING IS TOO HARD FOR GOD – there is no mistake or bad decision that God cannot turn around for His glory!
I am being reminded that even as I strongly believe that God can use other people’s mistakes, missteps and unwise decisions for good and for His glory, HE CAN AND WILL DO THE SAME FOR ME! I am being reminded to encourage and build myself up continually, just as I strive to continually encourage others and build them up!
Brothers and Sisters, God is able! God has the power to turn situations around and cause everything to work out for good – and this includes ALL of our mistakes, missteps, sins, setbacks, and unwise decisions! When we keep beating ourselves up over things we have done in the past, are we not undermining God’s authority, power and ability to cause everything to work out for good? God forbid!
12 Encouraging Scripture Reminders:
1 John 1:9, ESV If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Psalm 103:8-12, NIV The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love. He will not always accuse, nor will he harbor his anger forever; he does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities. For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.
Psalm 103:13-14, NIV As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him; for he knows how we are formed, he remembers that we are dust.
Psalm 46:10, NIV He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
Romans 8:28, NASB And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
Jeremiah 29:11, NIV For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Dear Friends, May God Strengthen You Today! May You Continually Encourage Yourself In The Lord and Build Yourself Up In God! May We ALL Walk And THRIVE In the FREEDOM that Christ has graciously given us!
Romans 8:1, ESV There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death.
John 3:17, ESV For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.
1 John 3:20, ESV For whenever our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and he knows everything.
Ephesians 3:16-19, NIV I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge – that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
Ephesians 3:20-21, NIV Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
