It’s okay to make mistakes because that is how we grow

2 Corinthians 3:6 (AMP) [It is He] Who has qualified us [making us to be fit and worthy and sufficient] as ministers and dispensers of a new covenant [of salvation through Christ], not [ministers] of the letter (of legally written code) but of the Spirit; for the code [of the Law] kills, but the [Holy] Spirit makes alive.

When we learn to be led by the Holy Spirit in everything we do then everything we do will be full of life. When God’s approval is on something we do, it just works out. Being led by the spirit is one of the greatest benefits we have as a Christian. We all have the privilege of being led by the spirit. In order to be led by the spirit it will take courage and confidence because it can be scary to step out when we think we hear from God.

Everyone wants to know how to hear from God. It would be great if we could just make a phone call into heaven. Unfortunately it does not work that way. Everything God wants us to know on what He would like for us to do is in the bible. We learn when we make mistakes by stepping out and making mistakes and then trying again. We can all learn how to hear from God but we will never know if we do not take the actions we need to. It’s okay to make mistakes because that is how we grow.

2 Corinthians 3:7-8 (AMP) Now if the dispensation of death engraved in letters on stone [the ministration of the Law], was inaugurated with such glory and splendor that the Israelites were not able to look steadily at the face of Moses because of its brilliance, [a glory] that was to fade and pass away, Why should not the dispensation of the Spirit [this spiritual [a]ministry whose task it is to cause men to obtain and be governed by the Holy Spirit] be attended with much greater and more splendid glory?

We have such a privilege and opportunity in our lives. It is a privilege to say that God lives in us and leads us by His spirit. The anointing is the presence, power, and ability, given to us by God.   On our own we may not be able to do much, but when God is on our side we can do amazing things. When we are anointed to do something then things may not be as difficult for us to do as if we were not anointed to do it. The anointing is for every task we do.

1 John 2:27 (AMP) 27 But as for you, the anointing (the sacred appointment, the unction) which you received from Him abides [[a]permanently] in you; [so] then you have no need that anyone should instruct you. But just as His anointing teaches you concerning everything and is true and is no falsehood, so you must abide in (live in, never depart from) Him [being [b]rooted in Him, knit to Him], just as [His anointing] has taught you [to do].

If you would like to accept Jesus as your savior, and you are not quite sure how, it is as simple as saying a prayer to God letting Him know you are ready to accept Him into your life. Say this prayer if you would like to invite Jesus to live in your heart:

Father God, I love you and believe in you. I need you Lord and I am sorry for my sins and the way that I live. Lord, I want you in my life. I receive Jesus as my savior and Lord. I believe that Jesus died for me and rose from the dead. Lord take me as I am and make me the way you want me to be. God, thank you for saving me and being with me on my journey. I am looking forward to my journey with you Lord. I know you will equip me for my journey and I am glad I have you by my side as I walk this walk of Life. Thank you Lord, I love you. Amen

My true belief is that the best way to preach is by our actions and not our words. However, we need some daily inspiration to keep us on our path. We as Christians have a responsibility not to judge others by our words but to show the love of Christ by loving them where they are at on their personal journey in life...and if they never turn their life over to Christ, continue to love them for who they are - after all God does.
