For Jesus is the one referred to in the Scriptures, where it says, “The stone that you builders rejected, has now become the cornerstone.”– Acts 4:11
Hind-sight is 20/20. “IF” is in the middle of “LIFE.” If only we had done this, or said that, what may have been the outcome? We make mistakes, we make wrong choices, but this scripture inspires us to believe that God can still make it right. Just as Jesus was rejected, underestimated, battered and brutalized and yet rose to be the most influential individual of all time by the power of God, we can surely pick ourselves up, brush off the disappointments, and choose a new path toward a better tomorrow. Laid off from a job? Lost investment value in the stock market? God’s will for us can still win out when we take the “IF” out of “LIFE” and get an IV infusion of His Spirit so that we can fully “LIVE” by faith.
Life can be so full of regrets. Lord, help me put the past behind me. I cannot undo what I’ve done, but I can have faith that a better future lies ahead.
