“71It is good for me that I have been afflicted,
That I may learn Your statutes.”
Fact is, every single person who has ever lived at least a few years on planet earth has, or will fail at some point in life.
Failure is part of every day life.
Failing in itself is not good. It’s symbolic with losing because it’s the opposite of success, of winning.
I think of failure is a learning experiences, as opportunities to improve, to do better the next time around.
The Word is filled with chosen prophets and leaders who failed at some point, but they learned from their mistakes, kept on moving forward and they were redeemed, just as we are.
Farmers plant seeds, and many of them never come to harvest, many of the efforts of farmers result in failure. It is their determination, in spite of their failures, which leads them to success.
Thomas Edison was a failure, until he turned on the light.
Walt Disney was fired from the Kansas City Star because his editor felt he “lacked imagination.”
Michael Jordan missed 3 times more shots than he made, on a good day.
Shaquille O’Neal still can’t hit a free throw.
It is determination, and failure which leads to success.
Likewise, it is devoted, sacrificial service which leads to glory and honor to God.
The good news is, God will never forsaken us….
2 Corinthians 4:9
“9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed “
God strikes us down so we can be built up, according to His ways, His will.
So, from this day on, look at failure as a vehicle toward success… 🙂
