Have you ever just felt lousy as a single mom? Like you’re not a candidate for God’s forgiveness? Or that you’ve fallen outside the realm of deserving God’s favor? If so, guess what? Like many others, you’ve just swallowed the biggest lie of Satan EVER! He doesn’t want you to know that your heavenly Father is the God of second chances. (And I might add, that I actually know Him as the God of third, fourth, and fifth chances!)
We sometimes forget we’re not the only ones who’ve made boo-boos in life. What mistakes have you committed? Have you ever disgraced yourself as a leader? Committed adultery? Lied about a sin, or plotted to murder someone? These are pretty heinous crimes. Yet, King David did all these, and God gave him not only a second chance, but placed Jesus, the Messiah, in his lineage. Oh my!
