Feeling Like a Failure. Sept 11 2019.
“ Forget the former things, do not dwell on the past, See, I am doing a new thing. Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wastelands.” Isaiah 43:18-19. NIV.
Do you ever feel like a failure, a complete failure? You have high hopes for the plans you have made. But they have not worked out. It seems like every decision you make and every direction you take is the wrong one. Your confidence is at an all time low and you feel like a failure because you keep on failing.
We need to come before the Lord when we need help. He always invites us to come into His presence and He welcomes us with open arms. He knows exactly what is happening in our lives at all times. He knows why things are not working out. We need to ask Him to help us learn from our failures so that we don’t repeat them over and over again. This is hard to do but is so necessary. Ask for humility and wisdom to learn what we have done wrong and then be willing to correct ourselves. Ask Him to renew a sense of optimism and enthusiasm in you so that we will get up after a fall and try again.
There may be attitudes and personality traits that are causing us to fail. Ask Him to work inside of you to make you a new person. Submit to Him and do what He asks you to do.
Thank Him for not looking at you as a failure but as His beloved child. His love and compassion should drive us to move on and press towards success. Praise Him for the things He has accomplished in your life.
“ Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things passed away: behold, all things are becoming new.” 2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV.
Zig Ziegler once said, “ Failure is a detour, not a dead end street.” With God we move forward.
🙏. Father God Thank You for picking us up when we are down. We are never a failure in Your eyes. We do however have to trust and obey and then you will show us the way. Christ’s example here on earth should give us all hope and its in His name that I pray.
