Making Use Of Your Mistakes

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

Proverbs 24:16 says, “A righteous man falls seven times, and rises again.” An example of this is Simon Peter. Peter was a righteous man who fell many times. But you don’t read about him continuing to make the same mistake again and again. For as a righteous man, he got up. And he didn’t waste his falls, but he made the most of them and learned from them. Peter grew, and by the end of his life, he was truly a great man of God.

So, too, with you. The question isn’t whether or not you’ll make mistakes, or if you’ll mess up. The question is, what will you do with your mistakes and messes once you make them? First, you need to rise up from them. Second, don’t just let them be a bad memory. Turn them into something good by learning from them, grow stronger, purer, and more in the center of God’s will for your life. For mistakes are some of the greatest teachers you will ever have. Thus, the wise man doesn’t just recover from his mistakes – he makes the most of them.

Today’s Mission – Today, take your mistakes and weaknesses and turn them around for good, turn sin into repentance, bitterness into forgiveness, and sorrow into joy.

Walk With An Eternal Perspective!

Luke 10:18-19 And He said to them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. Behold, I give you power to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”

This is a powerful passage which believers must claim! The Greek for the word “heaven”, “oo-ran-os”, implies not only heaven, but also eternity. The enemy was removed from the eternal places, and his power is only temporary in this world. Our power does not come from this temporary world, but from eternity, from the eternal throne of God.

If our focus is on eternal things, and we claim our authority from heaven, we can exercise power over the enemy. His attacks are temporary, and refer to our short life on earth, because his place in God’s eternal realm was abolished and he was cast down. Drawing on the authority and eternal power of God, through Yeshua (Jesus) we can really tread on serpents and scorpions, overcoming the enemy’s power. Whatever Satan sends our way is temporary and must submit to the authority we walk in when filled with the Holy Spirit.

Satan’s removal from heaven is good news for us. He has lost his place in the eternal realm. This makes the trials and tribulations of our life on earth much less significant. They are “light and momentary” compared with the eternal glory which awaits us…a fleeting moment, for the enemy has been cast out of eternity and his destiny is the lake of fire!

Your family in the Lord with much agape love
