God wants us to succeed…NO MATTER WHAT!
Our God wants us to succeed. He wants the best for our lives. The proof of these statements are all over the Bible. Jesus coming from heaven to earth to die on the cross and rising again is tremendous proof. But even before then, God has displayed the desire for us to live well. Look at Adam and Eve for example. We all know the story, the devil persuaded Eve to bite the apple and Eve persuaded Adam to bite the apple despite God’s command. But the story doesn’t end there, an important part of the story is what happened next.
Shortly after eating the apple, God began to look for Adam and Eve in the garden but He could not find them. When He finally did see them God asked them what happened? Let us pause… God is omniscient, omnipotent, and omnipresent and honestly speaking He did not need to ask Adam and Eve what happened because He already knew. But the whole point of God asking the question was for Adam and Eve to speak for themselves and tell Him what they had done. I believe that God, at that moment, was giving them a second chance. Only God’s knows what would have happened if they would have told Him about the wrong they had done.
The point of the matter is this, God is still handing out second chances to all of us today. Chance after chance after chance. Proverbs 24:16 says, “The righteous man may fall seven times and rise again…”. Rise again and again and again. God wants us to rise, no matter what! Rise up to the occasion and be all that you can be in Christ! He has given us the key to life. Let us use the key and walk through every open door because He will help us get there…NO MATTER WHAT!
