He covers me! God’s Grace Covers My Mistakes
God’s Grace Covers My Mistakes. Do you understand what this means??!? His love covers a multitude of my sins, weaknesses, flaws and mistakes. And he delights in mercy. So he likes to do this. Not that he protects me from all consequences of my sin; for he’s a good father, and a good father chastens his children. But very often when I make an emotional mistake, a financial mistake, a wrong decision, His love, mercy, kindness, blood and righteousness rush in to cover me. Normally the enemy would have EvErY right to punish me for my mistake. (And I’m sure he is quick to do that!) But I am covered by love, covered by adoption & sonship, covered by His grace over my life. I don’t have to follow the Devil’s rule book any more. He has no jurisdiction over my life because I’ve been born again. A new being-I’m not of this, his (the devil’s) world.
So I don’t have to fear! When I’m trying to do the right thing but make a mistake instead, His love covers me!! God’s Grace Covers My Mistakes. He’s got me covered because He loves me.
