You Are Not A Failure

Key Verse

“Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand.” Psalms 37:24

Text — Psalms 37:23,24


You are created in the image of the Almighty God, so you are not a failure or useless.

Notwithstanding what anybody feels or thinks about you or your situation, you are of great value and priceless. There may be moments of temptation and setback, these do not make you a “failure.” Such situations only make you go through learning and growing process. Just like a baby learning to walk, there will be times of stumbling and falling down, but does that make the baby a failure? No! A baby does not give up thinking that he can never master the growth process of walking, but will keep on trying and every day getting better.

God does not see you on the path of failure. You are created with potentials to succeed in life. Failure teaches us to be strong and courageous. Someone said, “Our greatest glory is not in falling, but in rising up every time we fall.” Failure should make us to dig deeper, find that inner strength to keep pushing forward. It gets you through the worst of times and makes you rely and rest on God.
