So You Messed Up! God Still Loves You!

What do you do when you messed up? You just give it up and leave?  Or you try to cover up and pretend that everything is alright? Or you keep on blaming yourself or some body else over and over again and accept that you are not going to put yourself up again and shine? What do you do when you think you really messed up big time? Allow me to share a truth from the word of God today.  Many people have this weird view of success, failure or God or a Christian life. Many people think God loves them and want to be with them when everything seems all right or when they think they are in a perfect relationship with God and others. Many think He treats them up right when they do things right. Let me tell you this today, God loves you no matter what. He loves you not because you good or bad. He doesn’t loves you because you do alright or you messed up in life. He loves you no matter what you did or who you are. But this doesn’t mean he wants you to keep on doing the stuff that drags you down from the life that you need to live on. No! He loves you when you don’t feel lovely. He loves you no matter how bad you messed up! Remember, the devil looks back and see how you messed up here and there, but God looks back and see how far you come. He never calculates your progression on your passion. He calculates your progression on the scale of the cross. Because he knows you can’t make it this far by yourself. So, today I want you to know that don’t beat yourself up. Because, when God forgive he forget. “…And will not remember thy sins.”—Isa. 43:25, “I will remember their sin no more.”—Jer. 31:34 and “Their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.”—Heb. 8:12. Let me tell you this, this very fact that when God saves me that he forgave me all my sins is keep me alive, live in peace, moves me, stirs me up, you name it. Remember, our God specializes calling the “nobodies” and make them “somebodies.” So, stop blaming yourself for what God has already forgave and forget. In fact, he demonstrate his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8 NIV)

Now take a moment and think about this, no matter how bad you messed up, He still loves you. He loves you and wants the very best for you. His love is unconditional. Other people may tell you this and that, can’t go any farther or make it happen. But you need to open yourself up to the truth and love of God and put your effort and strength in faith and hope in the Lord to your goals and dreams. Get in the position and stay focused. Look up before you give up. Be in control and trust in God. Sometimes your journey is painful and slow. Sometimes you may “fell of the wagon” and every thing looks so dark and hopeless. But remember what God says it is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed (Deuteronomy 31:8) and He also said When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears, and rescues them from all their troubles. (Psalm 34:17). Don’t say it’s over until God says it’s over.

So, if you think today that you are neck-deep in sin, or blame yourself for your situations, or feel trapped and see no way out? JESUS is the way out! He loves you and cares for you. You think you messed up really big time and don’t think God doesn’t forgive you? No! Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. (Isaiah 40:28-31)

It is good to know that you are responsible for all your actions. It is good you recognize you end up where you are right now because you let all the bad stuff into your life. The fact that you really messed up also is an opportunity to turn back to your feet again, if you accept the forgiveness of God and move on from past. So, today close the door to the past. Stop beating yourself up for what you did in the past. Don’t make your mistakes your memories. Your past may be your worst, but you can make the present your best. Stop keep on regretting when you able to keep on moving. Learn from your past don’t live in the past. Don’t let your past paralyze your future. Don’t let negative thoughts and experiences control your progression. Don’t allow broken dreams and unfulfilled promises stop you from enjoying each day. Don’t allow the spirit of captivity destroy the sense of purpose from your life. You may be broken and bruised in life before but don’t let that to be an excuse to grow and be happy in life. God is a God of new things. A new life, a new beginning, new covenant, new hearts, and new way of doing things. Because he is a God of new things there is always hope and future. There is joy and peace. However, for the new things begin the old has to go away. Dear saint, God is doing a new thing right now. But he wants you to get rid off the old so that the new has begun.

    dear brother in Christ

    i thank you for spreading God’s love through your blog. i am at this point feeling very much that i have messed up the opportunities and second chances God has given me. He has blessed me with more than i ever asked for but now everything is slipping through my fingers and it’s all my fault. i have been clinging to the Word of God in the Bible and i praise and thank the Lord for listening to my prayers. this particular blog entry of yours also gives me new perspectives on having faith in God’s promises. thank you for sharing the insights. they give me much encouragement to keep the faith. praise the Lord. God bless.

    I came across this blog at a much needed time in my life. I have screwed up royally, but I thank God that He is still on the throne and I am still His child. Rom. 8:1 says there is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. accepting condemnation from the devil keeps you from accepting conviction and forgiveness from Christ. when we condemn ourselves it’s like we’re saying sorry Jesus your blood just wasn’t strong enough for that sin so i’m gonna beat myself up. thats not true! His blood covers all sin, past, present, and future!! what a mighty God we serve. i needed to be reminded of His faithfulness and love so thank you for this blog. God Bless You Indeed!

  6. Thank you. Needed this. God bless

    A very scriptural encouraging word. Does God punish us? The things that are happening to me now seem like they’re straight from the enemy-trying to steal kill and destroy. I was wondering was God punishing me or did I open a door for all this total negativity to be going on in my life. What can I do?

    • Well my friend,
      The Scripture says “There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus” (Romans 8:1). I don’t believe God punish for the sins that we already confessed or repented. 1 John 1:9 which states that: “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
      However, the sacripture also says “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap according to Gal. 6. and read Prov. 1:31 and Job 4:8.
      You also need to distinguish bwtween punishment and discipline. If we continue to act in sinful ways and we do not repent and turn from that sin, God brings His divine discipline to bear upon us. But his discipline is always for our benefit.
      Sometimes the enemy try to remind all our sins (that are alrady forgiven) and try to destroy our peace and trust in the Lord. When that happen you need to stand on the assurance of God’s word and his promises. If you confess your sins and you become a child of God there is no need to worry except living the life that is pleasing to God and growing toward maturity (which is christlikness). Once you’ve received Christ by faith and been born of God, you will enjoy the peace beyond understanding that God promises to all who trust in Jesus (Phil. 4:7).

  9. thank you. :)

    Ur words were very inspirering to read…thank you. god knows i been feeling down.its exactly the upliftment I needed. God Bless..

  11. Thank you! I have screwed alot of things up in my life and others lives. I was looking for help on how to pray when I came across this wed site. It has given me hope and encouragement not to give up. I know God loves me but I am so ashamed that I have been nailing Him back on the cross with all my mistakes. Thank you again. God is using you to speak to me.

    • Hello Dian, thank you for your kind words. I believe our God is a God new beginning no matter how much we messed up. His grace is sufficient to bring us up and make brand new as long as we allow Him to work in us and through us. I have always loved the truth that God meets us where we are at in our lives. There’s no bondage that God can’t miraculously break and set us free. I think the key thing here is when we know we really messed up it is very important to stop running away from God but just run to Him.

  14. timothy Says:

    Hey thanks that was helpful but I have a question. ummm I’ve made decisions for my life without inquiring of God and now im in a situation where I cant really get out of it. for instance I thought of following one educational system while leaving another and for that I had to give up certain things and now I dont have that peace in my heart which tell me that God did not approve of it. I already did one exam and spent alot of money and now its like I cant go back. Im stuck. so how do I get out of it, how do I know for sure its exactly Gods will, and how do i know whether to continue or give it up. thanks

  15. Thanks for bringing to light the wonderful scriptures to face this awful situation.

  16. I thank you, I know God is faithful and just to forgive. It just that I have messed up and messed up and I knew to do better but I did’nt. I tried but I failed and fell beck into my sin so many times. I have to face the consequences of man now. I just pray for God’s extended hand of mercy. Please pray for me. KAY

  17. I messed up really bad but you have inspired me to keep on going and I ask that you would pray for me as I continue to continue to grow

    God bless you

  18. Hey thank you for these words. This is exactly how I’m feeling right now. I really appreciate these words I just get really down whenever I mess up to the point where I condemn myself and seperate myself from the church but thankfully am surrounded by some pretty awesome people. Thank you for these words :)
