So many people have been frustrated in life, marriages, families, business and careers because of a mistake they made in the past. Thus, they say to themselves that they can never make it in life. They do not see themselves any better than the mistake they have made. The truth of it all is that the mistake is nothing compared to who you really are and can be tomorrow. Though your now may be small yet your latter end shall greatly increase.


Beloved, there is so much ahead of you. The plan of God for your life is so great for you to allow the wrong of yesterday to stop you from your tomorrow. You must know that anyone is capable of making mistakes in life because we are all not perfect. Some of the most important and successful people in life today are people who made some mistakes but rose above their mistakes. They learnt the lessons, corrected the situation and moved on in life.

You don’t have to stop where you are now. There is a glorious end ahead of you. The only being that can never move on is the devil himself. He already knows its end and it can never be changed. Thus, if the only being that can never move on is the devil, it then goes to show that we all can still move on. The truth is that, what the enemy meant for evil, God can turn it around for good. You are too much for your mistake to stop you. That mistake is overcomable. There is the greater one inside of you, if you are a believer.

The power of the highest resides inside of you. This power is unstoppable. The world cannot stop it and so you cannot be stopped. Stir up the power of God that is within you. The scriptures says, “now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think according to the power that worketh in us” (Eph 3:20). It is your responsibility to stir up the power that will cause you to rise above the mistake.

Listen; don’t allow the devil to lie to you that you are a failure. There is no truth in the devil. In fact the bible calls him the father of all liars (John 8:44). So don’t expect him to tell you anything that will encourage you to rise above your present level. Hear me, you can rise and rise to any level you desire because the limitation has been broken. The barriers have been taken away. The scripture says,” arise, shine, for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon you” (Isa. 60:1). You cannot shine dwelling in the mistake. You have to rise first and then you can begin to shine. Hear me you can rise in every area of your life. It is not too late. As long as you are alive, you can become a miracle.

David made mistake in his relationship with Bathsheba and rose above it. Peter denied Jesus three times but rose above it. Apostle Paul killed many, arrested Christians and threw them in jail and made mockery of the church but rose above it and wrote two thirds of the new testament. What is the mistake that you have made that you cannot rise above?  All you need to do is to run to God and receive mercy and grace and advance in life.

You are destined for greatness. The height is incomparable. The future is too glorious and the devil is envious of you. Don’t let him stop you with his lies. You are still relevant and precious to God. God will never give up on you because he knows that you can rise above every circumstances and challenges in life. If God does not give up on you why then should you give up on yourself? Pick yourself up and shake off the dust and put on the new clothes and move on. Now is the time. Don’t dwell on that mistake one more time.

It will steal your strength and rob you of progress. Know that the glory of the latter house shall be greater than the former. I pray that the Lord by His mercies shall turn around your mistakes into miracles. Everyone that has mocked you last year because of your mistakes shall weep this year because they will see you blossoming in life. You will rise and end well this year. God bless our great nation Nigeria.
