Failure is Not Final

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE

“…But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead.” (Phillipians 3:13, NIV)

TODAY’S WORD

Are you down on yourself today because of past mistakes you’ve made or because you’re not where you want to be in life?  God knows every poor choice, every difficulty, every wrong turn you may have made, and He’s already planned your comeback!  In Scripture, Jonah took a detour, so to speak.  It took him a little bit longer, but because he called out to God, because he believed, God not only rescued him, but God got him to his final destination.

Friend, know today that failure is not final.  God always has the final say.  Mistakes don’t have to keep you from your destiny.  God’s plan can override every setback.  Your world may be in turmoil today in a relationship, in your finances or health.  But know this: not only will God rescue you; He will set your feet on a rock and lead you to your final destination in life.  Remember, the promise He placed on the inside of you didn’t go away because you had some personal failures.  No, that failure is only temporary but His Word remains forever!  Keep hoping, keep believing because He will move you into the blessing and victory He has prepared for you!

A PRAYER FOR TODAY

Father God, thank You for Your hand of victory and blessing that is on my life.  Today, I shake off the past, I shake off failure, I shake off poor choices, and trust that You are restoring me and leading me into the plan You have for me.  In Jesus’ name, I pray.  Amen!

A New Route

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE

“Who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion.” (Psalm 103:4, NIV)

TODAY’S WORD

I know people who feel like they’ve wasted years of their lives because of poor choices.  They spent years in a relationship that was toxic, years with an addiction, years at a job where they weren’t fulfilled.  But you have to realize, nothing you have been through is ever wasted.  Your past experiences, good and bad, have deposited something on the inside of you.  Those challenges have sharpened you to help make you who you are today.  When the enemy brings hardship into your life, God has a way of taking that experience and turning it around for your advantage.  You may think you’ve hit a dead end, but if you’ll stay in faith, you will see God begin to open up a new route.  He’ll put the right people in your path, the right opportunities, the right circumstances to move you forward toward your God-given destiny.

Today, don’t focus on what’s happened in your past, focus on what God will do in your future.  He wants to restore your soul and revive your dreams.  Keep believing, keep expecting, keep hoping because God has a new route for your future!

A PRAYER FOR TODAY

Father God, I come humbly before You today.  I give You my past, present, and future knowing that You will redeem my life.  I release those who have hurt me, I choose forgiveness so I can be free to move forward in the new route You have for me.  In Jesus’ name, I pray.  Amen.

Setup for a Comeback

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE

“For though a righteous man falls seven times, he rises again…” (Proverbs 24:16, NIV)

TODAY’S WORD

Life is full of things that try to push us down.  We all face disappointments and setbacks.  Maybe you received some bad news about your health or perhaps a relationship didn’t work out.  That was a setback.  It’s easy to get discouraged or lose your enthusiasm or even be tempted to just settle where you are.  But if we’re going to see God’s best, we have to have a “bounce back” mentality.  That means when you get knocked down, you don’t stay down.  You get back up again.  You have to know that every time adversity comes against you, it’s a setup for a comeback!

Remember, as a believer in Jesus, the same power that raised Christ from the dead lives on the inside of you.  There is no challenge too difficult, no obstacle too high, no sickness, no disappointment, no person, nothing that can keep you from your God-given destiny.  If you stay in faith, then God will turn what was meant to be a stumbling block into a stepping stone, and you’ll move forward in strength, full of faith and victory!

A PRAYER FOR TODAY

Father in heaven, thank You for setting me up for success in everything I do.  I choose to trust and rely on You knowing that Your plans are for my good.  I know my best days are ahead of me and I look ahead to the blessings You have in store for me.  In Jesus’ name, I pray.  Amen.

It’s About the Way You Finish

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE

“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” (2 Timothy 4:7, NIV)

TODAY’S WORD

So often, when people make mistakes, they get down on themselves and think, “If only…”  “I should have…”  “What if…?”  It’s easy to feel like you’ve missed the best plan for your life.  That’s when people get discouraged and stop pursuing their God-given dreams.  But understand today, just because you’ve made a mistake or failed in some way, that doesn’t cancel God’s plan.  God never disqualifies you.  He never says, “Go sit on the sidelines.  You’ve blown it too many times.  You’ve got too many weaknesses.”  No, God always gives you another chance!

Some of the great people in the Bible made very poor choices.  The apostle Paul started off as a murderer, yet his destiny was bigger than his mistakes.  He ended up becoming a great leader and writing over half of the New Testament.

What am I saying?  Our mistakes, our failures, our poor choices don’t have to keep us from our God-given destiny.  With God, it’s not about the way you start in life, it’s about the way you finish.  Receive His grace today and embrace the bright future He has in store for you!

A PRAYER FOR TODAY

Father, thank You for Your grace and mercy to me.  I trust that my days are ordered of You.  I ask that You strengthen and empower me to fulfill Your call on my life.  I love You and bless You today in Jesus’ name.  Amen.
