Meaning of Mistake: Mistake simply a wrong action, attributable to bad judgment.
If you mis-take, then right-take
God has not given any man to be all the knowing.
A Mistake Is something nobody want to make, but as humans we all keep making it.
I repeat you are not alone on this. “YOUR MISTAKE IS NOT YOU”.
You miss and took a wrong step, wrong turn, wrong thing etc.
Turn and take the right turn, right thing and do the right thing.
Driving fast in the wrong direction doesn’t take you to your destination.
Doing the wrong thing does not turn it to be right.
Philippians 3:13-14 says…. this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,  I press toward the mark…
IT IS TIME TO FORGET YOUR MISTAKE.. Put them behind and move forward.
You are not your mistakes, don’t personalize them.
You are bigger than your mistakes.
EXAMPLE OF THOSE WHO MAKE MISTAKES
- GOD OUR FATHER. Take a clue from God.
Genesis 1:1,30 everything he made he said it was good.
But in Genesis 6:6,13 KJV
And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
God didn’t stay in His mistake he put it behind and look for Noah to start a new world with him.
He didn’t sit down with his mistake and bemoan the situation rather he took a step to change it, to correct it.
Abiding on your mistakes doesn’t change them.
Rather build a tower on it, stand on it, learn from it, determine the direction of success.
There is no mistake so great as the mistake of not going on.
- JESUS THE CHRIST OUR SAVIOUR MADE A MISTAKE. He choose 12 disciples one was the devil that betrayed him.
John 6:70-71 KJV
Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?  He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve.
A big man or woman are not people who makes no mistakes, but people who are bigger than any mistakes he or she makes.
Choose to rise above your mistakes, dust yourself up and move on.
- Take a clue from a child.
He or she falls, get up and move on, that is how we should behave.
For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again:..
Failure is not final, wipe your tears from your eyes and move on.
The man who never make a mistake will never make greatness.
Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord upholdeth him with his hand.
Your fall doesn’t mean, you remain on the ground, God’s hand is behind you to lift you up back to your feet and restore what you must have lost.
The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be afraid of making mistakes..
Anyone who cannot entertain failure will not accommodate success.
Use your Failure as a springboard to your success and greatness.
Error and mistakes should be reason for growth not an excuse for discouragement.
Do you know that, defeat is not so painful if you get up again.
Do it again, start over again, you can make it.

God corrected his mistake. Genesis 6:6-8, 13,18-22
