Don’t Quit Now

To fail from time to time is only human, but to be a “failure” is when we are defeated by failure, refusing to rise and try again. Christians sometimes believe they should be immune to failure by virtue of their relationship with God, but the truth is that God often allows us to fail for a variety of reasons. Job 14:1 says, “Man born of woman is of few days and full of trouble.” That doesn’t say “unbelievers” or “the ungodly.” It says man born of woman.

Life is full of trouble, for both believers and unbelievers. God never promised us a life without problems, sorrow, and, yes, failure, due to our believe in Him.

When we feel failure, our first insight is mostly to give up or quit our course. But God is not shocked by our reaction which is why He sent His Son to die for our sins.

We will eventually rise up again, and we start over. But we should know that we cannot do it alone. We must keep our eyes on God, follow and obey His word. 

God has marked out a course for each of us, and sometimes that course includes failure. But when we cling to Him, even our failures can be turned into success by the One who controls all things and who strengthens us in our weakness (Philippians 4:11-13). Our ultimate victory in Jesus is assured, but complete victory will only come when we are out of this world of temptation and safe in the arms of the Lord in heaven.

God Bless You!!
