"There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit." Romans 8:1
We all make mistakes. No one is perfect. If you have never made a mistake, I would like to meet you. We are human, fail, learning and don't know it all. The Bible is full of mighty men and women that God used in amazing ways who made mistakes-- some very serious mistakes too.
Mistakes often bring consequences with them. And much of the time we have to endure those consequences. Mistakes often bring with it those who are eager to point out your mistakes-- even past mistakes. They like reminding you of "what you did". They are continually bringing it up and reminding you. They won't let it rest and move on. We have all experienced that. Hopefully we aren't the ones who are doing the "reminding". Hopefully we aren't the ones who are keeping someone else in the bondage of "what they did".
Perhaps you can't escape your mistakes because someone is always bringing them up to you? All I can tell you to do about that is pray for the one who is holding your mistakes over your head. Let God deal with them. But I can tell you this... God never holds our mistakes over our heads. He never uses them against us. He never "controls or manipulates" us with them. He never threatens us with them. He never keeps reminding us of "what we did".
Take heart this morning. Although you can't control others and what they do, you can rest assured that God is not going to beat you up with your mistakes or keep reminding you of them... ever!
Have a great day. God does not hold our mistakes over our heads.
