Failure Isn't Failure

Bookmark and Share

Lately, I've noticed several Facebook posts of people who say they are depressed, lonely, sad, disappointed, tired, frustrated, or in some other negative frame of being. Granted, the devil is after your peace, your joy and your purpose; but he is a liar, a thief, and a distracter.

The Lord is your strength! The Lord is your joy! The Lord has GOOD THINGS laid aside that have your name on them! God is for you!

Let me remind you today that every good thing in life is worth fighting for. In fact, the example we see over and over in scripture is where God's people are required to persevere in spite of giants, enemies, opposition, failure and even in spite of consequences to their own sin.

Sometimes, you've got to ENCOURAGE YOURSELF in the Lord. Pull yourself up by your bootstraps and force yourself to act like who God says you are instead of who the naysayers say you are. Friend, through prayer, bible reading and PARTICIPATION with Kingdom protocol, you are more than a conqueror!

It's not over until God says it's over and He is always working all things out for your good! He has a roadmap of blessings prepared just for YOU!

So, if you've experienced a setback, disappointment, roadblock or any negative outcome from your previous efforts, remember... this is only a test!

Press on! Failure is NOT failure unless you stop trying!

“My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.”
James 1:2-4 KJV
