At some point everyone of us need to be extended a second chance.
Recently my son, Jesse, spilled his milk while eating at the dinner table. While I did not enjoy having to clean up the milk that was running off the table and dripping through the cracks of our wooden table, it was a no brainer to give him another cup of milk after the clean up operation was done.
As our church family we have been listening to some prophetic words, I couldn't help but think of this principle.
Prophecy is so cool in that it updates with a reminder of God's perfect plan and intention for our lives. Literally speaking those things that are not as though they were. (Romans 4:17)
As good as second chances are...God is not a God of 2nd chances.
It's even better than that...God is the God of another chance.
His mercy is new every morning.
His love is unfailing.
His thoughts towards each one of us outnumber the sands of the seashore.
He is absolutely committed to us finishing our race well.
He is completely unchanging in His faithfulness.
"If we are faithless, He will remain faithful, for He cannot disown himself." (2 Timothy 2:13)
My God is not the God of second chances...He's the God of another chance!
