You Are Not a Mistake

Today, we’re going to talk about the FACT that YOU’RE NOT A MISTAKE.

And yes, this statement is fact. So, what’s the difference between fact and opinion. A fact is a statement that can be verified, and An opinion is an expression of belief about something.

Facts and Opinions leave clues…

OPINIONS SAY, “I think, I believe, I feel, In my opinion, some people think, it’s the best/it’s the worst, etc.

FACTS SAY, “The research confirms…” or “According to…. Then a source is cited and is usually followed by a fact. But you have to BE CAREFUL because it can also be followed by an opinion statement.

The source of a fact has to be credible. It cannot simply be your mother or your one of your relatives—unless they’re a recognized authority.

IN OTHER WORDS, YOU NEED TO KNOW YOUR SOURCE.

LISTEN…

No matter how you got here, no matter your current circumstances, no matter the mistakes you’ve made in the past, YOU ARE NOT A MISTAKE.

According to my parents, they didn’t expect me, BUT God did. So, even if you were your parents happy or not so happy “accident,” You’re here because GOD, Himself wanted you here for such a time as this.

Stop and breath that in for a moment…

Nothing in your life is coincidence. Nothing is useless. It’s all for a purpose.

God NEVER makes mistakes! He has a reason for everything He creates. That’s the mystery of it all…the challenge of it all… to uncover, to discover, why we’re here at this time.

When a husband and wife decide to have a baby, most times there’s much preparation. The mother begins what’s called NESTING, which is this urge to clean and organize everything. It’s an overwhelming desire to get the home ready for the new bundle of joy.

Think about this…

God, Himself hovered, or shall we say, nested over the waters. Look at this FACT in Gen 1:2 ESV The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.

See, God prepared to get the earth ready for you, His soon to come, new son or daughter.

The God of the Universe wanted YOU here. 

This FACT in Ephesians 2:10 NIV says, For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

So, not only did He want you here, He desired you to do something special with Him and for Him.

THEN…

Here’s where the enemy comes in…

OPINIONS say,

I’m not significant, I’m not sure why I’m here.

Or I’ve already raised my children–what’s left?

Whatever I do it doesn’t work out—so why try?

I’ve made so many mistakes, I know God can’t USE me.

Look at so-n-so, they’ve got it together, but what can I do?

LET ME TELL YOU SOME MORE FACTS…

THE FACTS say,

“The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying: ‘I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.'” Jeremiah 31:3 ESV

THE FACTS say,

He has removed our sins as far from us as the east is from the west. Psalm 103:12 NLT

THE FACTS say,

“The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.” Zephaniah 3:17 NIV

AND THIS FACT BEARS REPEATING…

THE FACTS say,

“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10 NIV

So, BEFORE YOU LISTEN to anything or anyone else. CHECK YOUR SOURCE and MAKE SURE IT’S A VERIFIABLE FACT in the Word of God.

We’re here to do good works and great exploits…Now, that’s the point of purpose…see you next time.
