Get Up !!
John Maxwell says, "When you fall down, get up and pick up something while you're down there." There is none righteous no not one. There are none who have a perfect track record except the One who came to die for all of our sins.
All of the greats in the bible had imperfections. Abraham got impatient and took Hagar to birth his first son. Moses killed an Egyptian soldier and had to run for his life. David took Bathsheba and had her husband Uriah killed.
When you fall, God says we can run to Him and ask for His mercy and forgiveness. Don't sit in your guilt, don't stay away from the One who is ready to cleanse and forgive you of your mistake and failure.
Confess your sin and He is willing to cleanse and forgive you of all your unrighteousness. What if David had not been honest before God? Nathan came to him and said, "David you are the man with the sin." David said; "Create in me a clean heart O God and renew a right spirit within me." (Psalm 51)
God not only forgave David of his wicked sins but later said of David; "He is a man after my own heart. " God remembers that we are but dust. (Psalm 103)
Quit beating yourself up. Allow his love and mercy and grace to give you another chance. God says that His mercies are fresh and new each and every morning."
Most people's issues are not that God won't forgive them, but rather they won't forgive themselves.
The next time the devil stirs up your old past, remind the devil that your sins have been buried in the sea of forgetfulness, never to be remembered again."It's better to wrestle with your struggle than to wrestle with the regret that you quit. Get up, the righteous falls seven times, he will rise and get up again. dannysdevotional.comoceanwayag.com
