SOMETIMES OUR MISTAKES AND GOD’S MIRACLES LIVE UNDER THE SAME ROOF.

Pastor Landon Galloway w/ special guest Pastor Jason Warman

Genesis 21:17-21
We interpret this story wrong when we view Ishmael solely as a mistake.
God had a purpose for Ishmael. 

1.. What God can do through the miracle, God can also do through the mistakes

  • People are NEVER a mistake.
  • Even when we’re in a season that’s a product of our mistake, God can redeem that season and use it for His own glory.

2. God has grace for your “mistake.”

  • Right at both Isaac’s point of death and Ishmael’s point of death, God opened up eyes to see provision.
  • God revealed himself as a sacrifice by the ram in the thicket as Isaac was prepared to be sacrificed ; God revealed himself as living water in the well to Hagar as Ishmael was on the brink of perishing of thirst.

3. God has a plan for your mistake. 

  • Ishmael was given a career, a family, and a purpose.
  • We all make mistakes, but our mistakes don’t have to be just mistakes in the eyes of God.
  • You have to trust that God is able to rewrite history so that your mistake isn’t a mistake.

Whatever you have, wherever you’re from, God can use your mistakes and grant you His presence and purpose.
