TOPIC: YOUR MISTAKE IS NOT YOUR MISTAKE!
BASIC SCRIPTURE: MATTHEW 26:34, 69-75
34 Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, That this night, before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.
69 Now Peter sat without in the palace: and a damsel came unto him, saying, Thou also wast with Jesus of Galilee.
70 But he denied before them all, saying, I know not what thou sayest.
71 And when he was gone out into the porch, another maid saw him, and said unto them that were there, This fellow was also with Jesus of Nazareth.
72 And again he denied with an oath, I do not know the man.
73 And after a while came unto him they that stood by, and said to Peter, Surely thou also art one of them; for thy speech bewrayeth thee.
74 Then began he to curse and to swear, saying, I know not the man. And immediately the cock crew.
75 And Peter remembered the word of Jesus, which said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. And he went out, and wept bitterly.
Today’s scripture, Verses 34 and 74 says: “Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, that this night, before the cock crow, thou shalt deny Me thrice. Then began he to curse and to swear, sayıng, I know not the Man.’ And immediately the cock crew. Wow! Note the words: “AND IMMEDIATELY THE COCK CREW.” The Cock crowing stands for a new day and a new beginning! Peter messed up big time just like Judas, but when the cock crew, God opened a new chapter for him! Who created the chock? Do you know that the COCk is a time/season monitor?
And what the Holy Ghost is saying to a user of today’s devotional is that, as the year draws to a close and a new one begins, develop a positive attitude to life, your battles, and your challenges. God will never allow you to encounter battles, temptations and challenges that are BIGGER THAN YOU! Hear Roy T. Bennett: “When start living the life of your dreams, there will always be obstacles, doubters, mistake along the way. But with hard work, perseverance and self-belief there is no limit to what you can achieve.
Your hardest time often leads to the greatest moments of your life. Keep going! Tough situations build strong people in the end.” Ah! No matter how this year 2021 has been, be reminded of this: LIKE PETER, YOUR COCK SHALL CROW AGAIN! Refuse to quit trusting God! Delay is not denial and your mistakes are not your mistakes, unless you refuse to move on! Stay strong and hold on! I see men dancing with you! Amen!

PRAYER POINTS: Take Song 3: Amazing grace….
1 Amazing grace (how sweet the sound)
that saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
was blind, but now I see.
2 ‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
and grace my fears relieved;
how precious did that grace appear
the hour I first believed!
3 Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come:
’tis grace has brought me safe thus far,
and grace will lead me home.
4 The Lord has promised good to me,
his word my hope secures;
he will my shield and portion be
as long as life endures.
5 Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
and mortal life shall cease:
I shall possess, within the veil,
a life of joy and peace.
6 The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
the sun forbear to shine;
but God, who called me here below,
will be forever mine.
In your own words, pray about today’s word as led now.
Reject regrets/depression/discouragement due to present delays or your past mistakes!
O Lord my God, give me a second chance by Your mercy in Jesus name.
Abba Father, deliver me from fatal mistakes as the year comes to an end in Jesus name.
My past shall not stop my OPEN REWARD in Jesus name.
I decree: Satan, you are a bastard liar! My cock shall crow again and my tomorrow shall be greater than my past/today in Jesus name.
