Beyond Failure

January 16, 2014

“Peace, peace to you, and peace to him who helps you, for your God helps you…” – 1 Chronicles 12:18

Life has a ton of setbacks, but God’s Word tells us that He is always there to help us. Our role is to persevere. And not just persevere, but to persevere in faith.

When we face hardships, God stands ready to guide us, but He never forces Himself on us. He is waiting for us to call upon Him in heartfelt prayer. He will answer – in His own time, according to His own purpose. and according to His plan. And He will do His part to help us. We are to trust His plans are better than our plans. And while we are waiting, we can be comforted in the knowledge that our Creator can overcome any obstacle, even if we cannot.

Remember that failure isn’t permanent…unless you fail to get up. So pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and trust God. God is a God of new beginnings. God is the One who can help “keep you keeping on.”
