Our Failures Do Not Hinder God’s Purposes

Ref. Scripture: Matthew 26:33-35

But Peter declared, “Even if I have to die with you, I will never disown you.” And all the other disciples said the same. Matthew 26:35

I think we would say the same. We can believe in our heart that we would die before denying our Lord, but the truth is that we will never know unless we are faced with the choice.

We have one great resource that the disciples did not have. The Spirit has been poured out. If we are living in constant reliance upon the Spirit, when faced with a choice, we will follow our life pattern of depending on His strength. We will make the right choice. If we are live in the pattern of relying on our own strength and effort, we will certainly fail the test. Failing does not mean defeat. The humility of failure made it possible for Peter to hear the Apostle Paul’s correction.

You probably stand before a great test in which you will fail, or have failed, or have been restored. Learn the lesson of failure, and let it teach you humility and dependence on the strength of the Spirit.

Remember: God does not love us any less when we fail. Get up! Depend on Him!

May your previous failures turn into success this month. Happy New Month.
