Don’t give up, take the next shot!
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
— Romans 8:28
There’s a debate among golfers as to which shot is most important. Some say that it’s the tee shot, because you need to get the ball down the fairway. But others say that it’s the putt, because ultimately, you have to put the ball in the cup.
Well, these are both important shots, but the most important shot in golf is the very next shot you’re going to hit, whatever it is. You see, no one plays golf perfectly, not even the best players in the world. But if you don’t take that next shot, then you’re not playing the game.
And when it comes to doing the will of God, you and I won’t always do it perfectly, either.
Sometimes we get off track or make a bad choice. But God doesn’t want you to give up on faith because you’ve made a mistake. Don’t let a bad decision lead to a series of bad choices, or one bad day lead to a string of bad days.
If you let him, God will take your mistakes and missteps and put you back on a track that glorifies him!
Take the next shot. Start doing what he says to do with your next choice. And according to his promise, he will cause all things to work together for good.
GOD CAN TAKE YOUR MISTAKES AND MISSTEPS, AND PUT YOU BACK ON A TRACK THAT GLORIFIES HIM!
