IT IS OKAY NOT TO KNOW
IT IS OKAY NOT TO KNOW
Read: PSALM 32:8–11
“The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law” (Deuteronomy 29:29).
You do not know everything; else you would be God. And since you do not know everything, you may make mistakes, misunderstand others, take wrong decisions and act in ignorance. Your assumptions and perspectives on issues may be incorrect. You may utter the wrong words and offend others. If this is so, why are you living in self-condemnation? Why do you constantly guilt-trip?
God understands your humanity. “As a father pities his children, so the Lord pities those who fear Him. For He knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust” (Psalm 103:13–14). God does not condemn you, rather He justifies you. It is the devil who accuses you and keeps you in a state of self-condemnation. The bible refers to Satan as the ‘accuser of brethren’ (Revelations 12:10). But faith comes by hearing “and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32).
So, it is okay not to understand everything; it is okay not to know certain things.
It is okay to make mistakes and fail sometimes. But when you do, learn the lessons you need to and move on quickly. Do not remain stuck in your errors. A verse in the famous song by Cristy Lane goes like this:
I’m only human,
I’m just a woman
Help me believe in what I could be and all that I am
Show me the stairway, I have to climb
Lord for my sake, teach me to take one day at a time.
You are only human, make this song your prayer today.
IN HIS PRESENCE is written by Oke Chinye
Have you accepted Jesus as your Lord and Saviour?
Jesus says in Mathew 11:28; “come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. No matter what you’ve done or where you’ve been, this invitation is for you. Jesus is knocking at the door of your heart; all you need to do is invite Him in, by believing and receiving Him.
Are you ready? Here’s a prayer you can say right now:
Dear Lord, I acknowledge that I am a sinner in need of grace. I believe that Jesus died to set me free from my sins. Thank You Jesus for dying to save me. Please forgive me for all my sins and come into my heart. Be my Lord and Saviour. Fill me with Your Spirit and enable me to live for You from now onwards, in Jesus’ name, Amen
