Failure?

We often talk more about our successes than we do our failures. When we see professional athletes on the fields/courts and performers on stage/movies in most cases we see them at their best! We don’t see the failed practices and/or rehearsal sessions. Failure is a part of growth and the foundational element to our success. Failure reminds us that we are not God! David’s mid-life failure was probably motivation that helped him pen the words in Psalm 119, which so happens to be the longest Psalm and longest chapter in the Bible! David said in v.71, “It was good for me to be afflicted so that I could learn your statutes.” Failure is not a matter of ‘if’ rather it’s a matter of when and when we do fail it’s important to remember that God has a good reason for allowing it to happen. We might not understand it at that moment, but God will prove to be faithful in the end. Therefore, keep pursuing righteousness and use God’s strength. You must put your faith in the Lord and stop trusting in the arms of the flesh and the things that are seen. Place your trust in God. If God called you to do something and if that something is God’s will then it will never fail. Determination and failure leads to success. You fail and you get up and you try again. Eventually you will get it right. John C. Maxwell said, “Fail early, fail often, but always fail forward.”
