When We Fail!

I know what lots of people do. They beat themselves up with guilt and shame. They tell themselves what a loser they are. They heap condemnation on their heads and walk around in defeat mode. That is not the thing God wants us to do when we fail. Even the righteous person, even the one who desires to do right and please God, that one falls, fails and blows it—not once or twice but seven times (over and over and over again). Have a wonderful as you remain in His presence and that His grace is sufficient for you. Love you all. 

 

“For a righteous man falls seven times, and rises again, but the wicked  stumble in time of calamity.”  Proverbs 24:16

 

Now, the devil will tell you when you fall, “Give up! Throw in the towel and quit!  You will never walk in victory over this anger, this worry, this bitterness, this lust, this greed, this addiction, this whatever.  You are a loser and a failure and a major disappointment to God.”  Have you ever heard those words play in your head? Well, the good news is this: “The devil is a liar and the father of lies” (John 8:44).

 

When we fall, God never says, “Give up.” God says, “Get up!  Rise again!  Confess that sin; get it out of your heart and under My blood.  Take my hand, and let’s walk together.  Keep looking to Me, and we will slay this giant in your life.” WE CAN’T DO IT ALONE … AND WE DON’T HAVE TO.


My friends, you and I do not have the power to change our hearts, but God does. He can change your sinful desires. He can give you a heart that beats for Him and His righteousness. He can clean you up and set you on a path of joy, peace and victory. The little poem I like says, “I can’t … He never said I could. He will … He always said He would.”

 

If you have fallen, will you quit beating yourself down over your failures and start looking up?  Will you open your eyes and see a Savior who loves you, who has a nail-scarred hand stretched out to you, who says to you, “Will you take My hand, and walk with Me?”  What is your answer to Him.

About Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!
