No one can earn salvation with good works. Our righteousness is as filthy rags compared to his holiness. No matter how many mistakes or pitfalls you stumble on, always get back up.
Proverbs 24:16 says that, For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again.
Do not fall into the trap of self pity. It prohibits and blocks what God wants you to receive. God does not love you any less because of your falls. Your value did not go down. You are a vessel that he can use. Everything is a process, so allow patience to fill your heart, so that he may have his way. Run your race, there’s no time stop. Continue to get back up. Go and sin no more!

You have to know who you are and who God called you to be. It’s so easy to get entangled up in a mess that we cannot get ourselves out of. It’s also simple to lose who you are in this world. If we are constantly seeking attention in the wrong places and areas, then we will have a false sense of satisfaction and security. Be who you are. Live in the authenticity of who he created you to be. Do not waste the greatness of what God has deposit into you. Seek God first and always put on the full armor of God. Everything that’s popular does not always have power. Don’t be a counterfeit or imitation of another person. Make everything you do pleasing in his sight. Don’t live a life of deceit but instead a life of holiness. Remove your mask. The funny thing about masks is they are uncomfortable. A person can only wear a mask for so long, like a wolf in sheep’s clothing. (It will eventually come off) Lay your all down before God and he shall cover and shower you with his blessings. He shall protect you through the storms and the rocky waves of life for he is God and God alone!
Everyday is special. Make it count by doing something to make God happy. Normally, we do things to make ourselves or other people happy. Make God smile by not only by your words and faith, but by your action. Find ways to get closer to him by praying more, reading his word a little longer or simply create new goals to evolve in your relationship with him. Draw closer to him while his presence is near. Repent while there’s still a chance. Repentance is a gift that should not be taken for granted (especially in the last days) What can you do that’s out of your norm to please him today? Things may not always go your way, but part of being spiritually mature means you will still do the right thing even when the wrong thing is happening. Allow God to transform and pick up the pieces of your life. We cannot continue to label and limit God to just our understanding, thoughts, opinions, ideology and philosophies. He is God and he shall not share his glory with another! Commit and surrender your all to him and he will surely move in your life. Don’t cling on to your own life, for you will surely lose it. Save it by giving it to him. Do not allow your soul to deteriorate slowly.
