Many of us spend a lot of time punishing ourselves for being a failure. We fail at raising our kids, our marriage, our job and the beat goes on. Consider the people in the Bible who failed over and over again. Moses killed a man, David committed adultery and then had his lover’s husband killed. We all know what Peter did; he denied Jesus three times.
All these men failed miserably but they were not failures. They pressed on and became all that God intended them to be. All of us fail but we are not what we do…our identity is not in our failures, it’s in the fact that we are “the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus”. (2 Corinthians 5:21).
It’s impossible to be the righteousness of God and be a failure at the same time. If we can get up after we fall, we are winners. ” I am more than a conqueror through Him Who loves me.” Romans 8:37
So get up, dust yourself off and thank God for who you are and that you cannot be a failure!.
