“Now therefore, please let your servant remain instead of the lad as a slave to my lord, and let the lad go up with his brothers.”
Here we see Judah ready to give up his own life for Benjamin’s to somehow pay for all their mistakes! We all can look back at our lives and see all the mistakes we’ve made and would like to go back and correct them, to make things right! Realize even in our mistakes the LORD is leading us!
“Even there Your hand shall lead me, And Your right hand shall hold me.” Psalm 139:10
Often times our mistakes can lead us to the right place, right where the LORD wants us to be, right to the place where He can use us for His purposes! Our mistakes usually lead us to a mess, but our messes the LORD somehow uses for His glory!
“The LORD is good, A stronghold in the day of trouble; And He knows those who trust in Him.” Nahum 1:7
So today instead of looking at our mess and be in distress, look to the LORD and trust Him. Watch how He can take your mess and somehow bless! Just keep your eyes on the LORD not your messy situation whether it’s your fault or not! Have a blessed day in the LORD!
