Hopefully, the knowledge that God doesn’t make mistakes will help leverage your faith and make you a better Christian, even in your toughest of times. Below are my reasons why these are the best 25 Bible verses and Christian quotes about God doesn't make mistakes.
1. “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23, NIV
It is important to remember that you are not alone. Everyone makes mistakes - yes, everyone.
2. “We all stumble in many ways. Anyone who is never at fault in what they say is perfect, able to keep their whole body in check.” James 3:2, NIV
In fact, the scripture tells us that it is actually odd if a man, or woman, doesn’t stumble every now and then.
3. “Whoever conceals their sins does not prosper, but the one who confesses and renounces them finds mercy. Blessed is the one who always trembles before God, but whoever hardens their heart falls into trouble.” Proverbs 28:13-14, NIV
It doesn’t matter how often you fall short in life, but what matters is how often you repent.
4. “Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning, great is Your faithfulness. I say to myself, ‘The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for Him.’ The Lord is good to those whose hope is in Him, to the one who seeks Him.” Lamentations 3:22-25, NIV
The Bible tells us that God’s mercies are new every single morning. We just have to depend on Him, and pray for forgiveness.
5. “Wash away all my inequity and cleanse me from my sin. For I know my transgressions, and my sin is always before me. Against You, You only, have I sinned and done what is evil in Your sight; so You are right in Your verdict and justified when You judge.” Psalm 51:2-4, NIV
The words of the scripture tell us to confess our sin to Jesus and we will be made clean again. Even the most evil doings will be forgiven if you just sit before the Son of the Most High and repent.
6. “‘Come now, let us settle the matter,’ says the Lord. ‘Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.’” Isaiah 1:18, NIV
The Father knows that we will fall short, and that we will sin. He even knows exactly what mistake will be made and when they will be made by each and every one of us.
7. “In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days He has spoken to us by His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things and through whom also He made the universe. The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of His being, sustaining all things by His powerful word.” Hebrews 1:1-3, NIV
8.“For by Him all things were created; things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by Him and for Him.” Colossians 1:16, NIV
No matter your personal story in life, whether it involves mental illness or your own suffering, you can trust God and know that when He created you, He made no mistake.
9. “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” Psalm 139:13-14, NIV
It’s not as if God only recently learned about you. He literally knit you together, cell by cell, and had a plan and purpose for your life, before you were even born. He had planned you long before your parents were even born. Surely then, there is no way you could’ve been a mistake.
No matter what your past looks like, God has a purpose for your life. Whether it is in church, in your career, or even in your family, hold onto the hope and belief that God has got you.
10. “And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.” Genesis 1:31, ESV
God saw everything that He made, including you, and He was satisfied. God doesn’t make mistakes, especially not when He made you.
11. “For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving.” 1 Timothy 4:4 NIV
As Christians who have grown up in a world of flaws and judgement, we are inclined to notice flaws in others, and in ourselves. We judge, we criticize, and we reject. Even the church does this sometimes. It’s the way society has conditioned us into thinking. And because of that, you might assume that God thinks the same way as us.
12. ‘For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways,’ declares the Lord. ‘As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways.’” Isaiah 55:8-9, NIV
But God doesn’t think the same way as us. His thoughts are not our thoughts. Yes, He acknowledges that we are sinners, but God’s love for us is unconditional and no amount of sin or shortcomings will ever change that.
13. “But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” 2 Corinthians 12:9, NIV
In fact, it is in our weakness that we can truly and completely see the perfection of God’s power.
14. “This is the message we have heard from Him and declare to you: God is light; in Him is no darkness at all.” 1 John 1:5, NIV
Although we are His children, we are also part of this world, and this world has so much darkness and death. But Jesus is the light, and we need to fix our eyes on His perfect love.
15. “God is not human, that He should lie, not a human being, that He should change His mind. Does He speak and then not act? Does He promise and not fulfill?” Numbers 23:19, NIV
As often as we, as humans, sin and fall short of the glory of God, we can be assured in knowing that God is not human and has no shortcomings like we do.
16. “God - His way is perfect; the Word of the Lord is pure. He is a shield to all who take refuge in Him.” 2 Samuel 22:31 NIV
A disheartening amount of people, including many Christians, sometimes find themselves in a place of pain, suffering, and even depression. So much so that unfortunately, some people see death as their only option.
If you are a person struggling like this, you might have even felt like a burden to your family, friends, and any other people around you. You might have even found yourself wondering if God made a mistake when He created you. You are wrong.
If you are a Christian facing fear, struggle, pain, or suffering, you need to draw close to Jesus. Go to church, try out different youth groups, build your faith. There are so many loving people out there, even if they are not in your family. Do not listen to the evil thoughts that the world feeds into your mind, but turn to the Son of God.
Seek the Holy Spirit and pray to Him. He will answer you. Listen to and hear the message of the church. Immerse yourself in His Word because it holds every answer. Be reminded that you are a child of the Most High and He will always have grace on you. He will always forgive you if you repent.
17. “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.” Genesis 1:27, NIV
Be encouraged in knowing that God doesn’t make mistakes. You were born because God wanted you, His child, to be a part of this world. He created you, His son or daughter, in His image.
18. “Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.” Matthew 5:48, NIV
The Bible tells us to strive for perfection as our God and Father in Heaven is.
We were not born to be perfect. The only way you will ever come close to being perfect in the eyes of God, is by immersing yourself in words of the scriptures and aiming to live your life in the image of Jesus Christ in all that you do.
19. “Not that I have already obtained all this, or have I already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.” Philippians 3:12, NIV
But also be humbled in remembering that you will actually never be perfect - and that’s okay. You were never born to be. God knows that and He doesn’t expect you to be perfect.
20. He is the Rock, His works are perfect, and all His ways are just. A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is He.” Deuteronomy 32:4, NIV
God is perfect. God doesn’t make mistakes. Just because we sometimes can’t quite grasp a full understanding of His perfection, doesn’t mean it’s not there.
21. “Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; His greatness no one can fathom.” Psalm 145:3 NIV
In fact, God is so perfect, so powerful and so glorious that it is sometimes impossible for us, even as Christians, to comprehend.
22. “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” Hebrews 13:8, NIV
And in knowing that Jesus is perfect, we can furthermore find comfort in knowing that He will never change.
