Problems have the tendency to isolate us from other people but God has promised that He will not abandon us. Are you struggling in your marriage, employment, academics, business or ministry? Never give up because God will never give up on you.
Generally, everybody is afraid of failure. However, people misunderstand failure. Failure can become a tool that pushes us to where the Lord wants us. The darkest hour is always closest to the dawn of light. So when it gets dark, you can rejoice. It is an opportunity to experience the hand of God in your life.
People misconceive failure as an avoidable event in life but everyone does at one time fail at one thing or the other. The fact that failure is objective is wrong, rather it is subjective. It is for you to determine whether failure is an enemy or not? Note that it is not!
Failure can be a friend in whose presence we learn what it takes to overcome. Failure is not a stigma as some misunderstand it. Errors can be cancelled. Failure may be the price you have to pay for your success. Encourage yourself in the Lord and try again when you fall.
In addition, you can choose to see failure as temporary. Every crisis in life is inferior to time because they can be blown away in the event of time. Make sure that your past failure is only an isolated event, shake up yourself and try again.
It may take some time to overcome some setbacks, but always keep your expectations realistic. Moreover, remember to give thanks to God. If you want a miracle, focus and study biblical examples of success. It is possible to go from prison to palace in a short time.
God wants to take you somewhere. He believes in you and He will not give up on you. He brought you out of darkness into His marvelous light. Hence do not give up on God because of any crisis; even if you are bereaved God will comfort you.
Be willing to change your approach to your situation. Do something new and get ready to bounce back. The ways of God are different from our own ways and the thoughts of God for our lives are always good. His ways and thoughts are higher than our own and they are always good.
