Bible Verse for Today
“And at the end of the time I, Nebuchadnezzar, lifted my eyes to heaven, and my understanding returned to me; and I blessed the Most High and praised and honored Him who lives forever: For His dominion is an everlasting dominion, And His kingdom is from generation to generation.” (Daniel 4:37)
When you wake up from bed in the morning and get dressed to go out and do your daily work, you look at the mirror to check if you look good. While checking yourself out in the mirror, you discover that you have made a mistake while putting on your clothes. What must be done is to correct it immediately to avoid going about with mistakes. In this same manner, mistakes that we have made can give us a bad shape and reshape our destinies.
There is a need to get into these mistakes and address them. We really need to take a deeper look at our lives and check for mistakes. Some mistakes are not made yesterday, a day before, there might be mistakes made a long time ago. King Nebuchadnezzar realized his mistake at the end and he corrected it.
Having the fear of God means to shun evil and follow his ways. Anytime we make mistakes, it might tend to become sin. This is the reason why God sent Jesus to die for us – every man has made a mistake. Sin has come into the earth through a man, it has become our nature to make mistakes. This is the time to start correcting our mistakes.
The Bible says that if anyone denies that he or she has not made a mistake, or commit sin then he or she is nothing but a liar. 1 John 1:8. One thing must be done before correcting your mistakes and that is identifying the mistake and accepting the fact that you have made a mistake. When this is done, then to correct it will be easy through Christ.
