It doesn’t matter; but it does. This sound ridiculous; sarcastic; and maybe stupid. But this might change your life. The question is: “What is that thing that doesn’t matter?” “What is that thing that does?” let’s begin.
Every person in this life desires to please God somehow, of course I am not talking to atheists who don’t believe that God exists nor think about the judgment day, but I am talking to those who look at that day with fear; with doubt; with questions like: what will happen? Was I good enough? What would God tell me? Is He pleased with me? Would I be in heaven? Or hell? If you are one of those please keep reading.
The title of this article is “It doesn’t matter”. Your failures, your mistakes, your setbacks, the times you failed God, your bad decisions , everything that crosses your mind that reminds you of your past. Maybe it’s a divorce you regret so bad, maybe it’s a relationship that destroyed you, maybe it’s a business you shouldn’t start—the list is endless… It doesn’t matter.
You might say “it doesn’t matter? This sin is killing me, I can’t sleep at night, this nightmare is always hunting me day and night, day and night. I can’t handle this anymore”. Well brother listen to me, IT DOESN’T MATTER, God has a new beginning for you, no matter what you have done it doesn’t matter, He still loves you, He still adores you, He will never regret that He died for you, “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)
It doesn’t matter how many times you fell, God’s grace is much more abundant to cover you, the blood of Jesus is greater than and able to wash any sin you have made, it doesn’t matter, but what matters is to stand up again, to confess your sins to God, to come to the throne of grace that you may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. (Hebrew 4:16).
“For a righteous man may fall seven times and rise again, but the wicked shall fall by calamity. (Proverbs 24:16)
Ladies and gentlemen, if you are born again; if you are part of God’s family; if you have received the free gift of God; if you are called according to His purpose; then I have great news for you. Everything will work together for your good. (Romans 8:28-29). Even when you fail and mess up. He uses our mistakes for our good. Of course we have to deal with the consequences but we must not live there. God has a new beginning for you; He never regrets calling you His child.
For more on this point read the lives of Abraham; Isaac; Jacob; Moses; David; Solomon; Peter; Paul;….; you will be encouraged and amazed by how God used these men even when they have messed up just like you— maybe even more. Blessings!
