I heard the Lord say, “Do over.” God is encouraging us to tap into divine do overs in this season. Make no mistake, divine do overs are always available and God is more than willing to dish them out.
I prayed through this on my Mornings With the Holy Spirit prayer broadcast, but I wanted to break it down a little more here.
A do over is a new attempt or opportunity to do something after a previous attempt has been unsuccessful or unsatisfactory. Think about that. You tried something and it failed, or you tried something and it didn’t bear much fruit. Maybe you tried something and it didn’t just fail but it backfired in your face. Or you tried something and on the point of breakthrough you met with disappointment.
Make no mistake, divine do overs are always available and God is more than willing to dish them out.
Maybe you got ahead of God and birthed an Ishmael. Maybe you caved in to Jezebel’s intimidation and hid in a cave. Maybe you didn’t run to the battle line to take down that Goliath and now he’s and his brothers are coming back to haunt you. The divine do over belongs to you.
Maybe you backslid. Maybe you’re prodigal. Maybe you just got divorced. Maybe your spouse abandoned you. Whatever you’ve done and whatever has happened to you, God is the God of second chances, third chances and newness of life. The divine do over belongs to you.
Jeremiah 29:11 is still true for you: “’For I know the plans I have for you,’ says the Lord. “’They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.’”
Romans 8:28 is still true for you: “So we are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together to fit into God’s perfect plan of bringing good into our lives, for we are his lovers who have been called to fulfill his designed purpose.”
And Isaiah 43:18-19 is still true for you: “Stop dwelling on the past. Don’t even remember these former things. I am doing something brand new, something unheard of. Even now it sprouts and grows and matures. Don’t you perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness
and open up flowing streams in the desert.”
If you need to repent, repent. Debug your mind of demonic viruses. Let the Holy Ghost do a little touch up on your thinking. But don’t forfeit your do over. Instead, get ready for an upgrade. Step into the change. Look for the new things. Embrace the Spirit-inspired improvements. Revise your story. The divine do over belongs to you!
