Quite often as we journey in this life, we are often weighed down by the burdens of our mistakes. We occasionally make wrong turns and even the coolest of us blow it. We wish there is an eraser that can erase many of the mistakes and failures we’ve done. Many are the times we feel frustrated like a golfer drifting further and further from the green with every succeeding stroke. What if I told you there is a secret eraser for our mistakes. David occasionally felt frustrated that he was unable to be the best that he wished he was. He was a man of equal nature to us and missed the Mark severally. He took many wrong turns like many of us take. But he knew the secret to life; “there is a God who perfects that which concerns us”. Yes! If it was all left to us it would fail but there is a Secret Eraser. David knew there was no need of living in the guilt of our messes. Like a loving mother wiping the droppings from her baby strolling aimlessly across the sitting room, and never shying away from its smell; there is a God who specializes in making perfect many of the errors and mistakes that would sabotage our destiny. In this world all extremes are possible but there is a God who protects us from its excesses! Where are you feeling weighed down? Where have you blown it? Trust God to still perfect that which concerns you.
“The LORD will perfect that which concerns me; Your mercy, O LORD, endures forever; Do not forsake the works of Your hands.” Psalms 138:8
