Failure

(note: this devotion was from my time as a missionary at Calvary Chapel Bible College in Hungary)

In the 7 years I was at CCBCE, I only remember 2 devos (morning Devotional Service). Neither of them were ones I had done.

The 1st one I remember because it was bad, very bad.

The 2nd one was by Imre Orsos.
Imre said he realized he couldn't make a mistake.

He said he does
  • lots of things wrong,
  • lots of things he shouldn't,
  • lots of things he is sorry for,
  • but he said he realized he couldn't make a mistake when he found this verse:
Romans 8:28  And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.

Imre said that means that no matter how many things he does wrong, God will use it for his good.

The commentators say that "work together for good" is present tense.
Meaning mistakes you made in the past, are right now being used by God for your good.

"All things" means all things.
Whatever you did in your past,
even before you were a Christian,
those things are a part of "all things".

I have talked before about our failures
I want you to know God is using
your failures
for your good
in your life.

There are some God wants to heal now.

He wants to take that big failure in your life (the one that you think is big), and
  • He wants to give you the chance to come face-to-face with it.
  • To make a decision, like a real man or real woman.
  • Like I think Peter did.
We usually don't want to face our failures; it is easier to not think of them, to run away from them.

My dad had a saying "a brave man dies once, a coward dies a thousand times".
Meaning that if you run from something, instead of facing it,
you will face it a thousand times.

Let's face our failures,
let's take them to the Lord & get some healing done.

You know Jesus, you have the Holy Spirit
Confront that failure in your life,
make a decision about it,
you will find God not only heals you,
but makes you stronger.
