Failure is Inevitable

For he knows how weak we are; he remembers we are only dust.  (Psalm 103:14 NLT)

   Failure is commonplace in the Scriptures. Who has not read of the failure of our forefathers Adam and Eve, Abraham, Lot, Noah, Moses, Saul, David, Solomon and a host of others?  Failure is inevitable!  We all fail at one time or another.  No one is left out.

   How does God look upon failure?  Did he discard David when he sinned with Bathsheba?  Was Moses rejected when he disobeyed and struck the rock?  Were the disciples set aside when they failed to watch and pray?  Was Thomas banned when he doubted?  Where would we be today if the Lord had not restored Peter, or forgiven Saul for his persecution and murdering of Christians?

   We all fail, but that failure can be turned  into victory by trusting Christ to forgive the sin and establish our relationship with him.  The most important thing to remember is God understands and forgives.

Thought for the Day: Failure in eyes of God is merely a stepping stone to a successful future.
