DAY 3 – Keep Moving! (Run To God Not From God)

Living a victorious life doesn’t mean that everything goes perfectly. In fact, it doesn’t mean that you always DO perfectly either. The reality is, all of us mess up and make mistakes.

A big part of continuing to live in the victory that Jesus won for you is knowing how to respond when you have messed up or something goes wrong in life. Let’s remind ourselves of something; Jesus died for our sins! His blood is more powerful than our mess! Believe that!

When we put our faith in His work on the cross, it positions us to keep moving and not be tied down to our failures. We might trip up and fall down at times but God is not interested in holding us down. He wants to lift us up, dust us off and help us walk stronger than before!

So what do you do? Well, you don’t run FROM God. You run TO Him! Be honest with God. Tell Him about your mistakes and then ask Him to forgive you and help you change. Receive His forgiveness by faith and then get moving in the victory He has won for you!

If we can learn this simple lesson while we’re young, we’ll know how to respond in the future and for the rest of our lives. Our growth in God will become unstoppable!


Luke 15:20-32 NLT
“So he returned home to his father. And while he was still a long way off, his father saw him coming. Filled with love and compassion, he ran to his son, embraced him, and kissed him. His son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against both heaven and you, and I am no longer worthy of being called your son.’ “But his father said to the servants, ‘Quick! Bring the finest robe in the house and put it on him. Get a ring for his finger and sandals for his feet. And kill the calf we have been fattening. We must celebrate with a feast, for this son of mine was dead and has now returned to life. He was lost, but now he is found.’ So the party began. “Meanwhile, the older son was in the fields working. When he returned home, he heard music and dancing in the house, and he asked one of the servants what was going on. ‘Your brother is back,’ he was told, ‘and your father has killed the fattened calf. We are celebrating because of his safe return.’ “The older brother was angry and wouldn’t go in. His father came out and begged him, but he replied, ‘All these years I’ve slaved for you and never once refused to do a single thing you told me to. And in all that time you never gave me even one young goat for a feast with my friends. Yet when this son of yours comes back after squandering your money on prostitutes, you celebrate by killing the fattened calf!’ “His father said to him, ‘Look, dear son, you have always stayed by me, and everything I have is yours. We had to celebrate this happy day. For your brother was dead and has come back to life! He was lost, but now he is found!’”
Romans 8:1 NLT
So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus.
Hebrews 4:14-16 NLT
So then, since we have a great High Priest who has entered heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to what we believe. This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin. So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.
