How many times have you made the same mistake over and over? What do you think is the reason why you keep repeating it? I have those cycles as well in my life and I’m not proud of it. Sometimes, I just thought that I will be able to handle the situation and I won’t fall into the pit anymore. I feel like I’m invincible. But, I was dead wrong.
These are the times when I depend on myself more than fully depending on God. I fail to submit to Him and instead do things my own way even if I already failed the first time. I realize it takes humility to be able to let go and let God take control of the situation. And, it is only through God’s goodness and grace that we are able to humble ourselves as well.
Are you willing to let go and let God redeem you from your past failures?
“For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.” Luke 14:11
