Need Encouragement After Famous Failures?
We All Fail From Time To Time!
A person is not a failure just because they have failed in what they attempted to accomplish. But a person who will not try to get back up in some form or another. Those people are the ones who need encouragement to try again, and again when necessary. It doesn’t matter how many times a person fails in life, but what matters is how many times they get back up on their feet to try again.
Some Famous Failures!
A Mature Christian’s Attitude About Failure
The mature believers understand that a Christian can become successful despite any failure because of God’s faithfulness, grace, and forgiveness. Sometimes we are forced to live with our failures or sins, yet God is free to continue to love us because of grace (John 21 ).
The mature believer utilizes their failures as lessons for growth and future improvement. They understand that failures remind us of the consequences of our decisions. We reap what we sow. Failures remind us of what can happen, and they should not be allowed to paralyze us.
The mature believer recognizes that our failures show us what we should and also should not do; they become lessons in where we went wrong and why. They say, “hindsight is 20/20.” “hindsight” means “thinking about things after they’ve happened.” It can help us avoid the same mistake twice if we learn from our mistakes and the mistakes of others also.
When Mature Christian Believers Fail They Can:
- Acknowledge their failures and refuse to make excuses.
- Confess any sin to God when sin is involved in the failure.
- Examine what happened so they can learn from their failures.
- Put it behind them and move ahead (1 John 1:9; Philippians. 3:13).
Rest assured on God’s forgiveness, and we are to put our failures behind us, rest in His mercy, and refuse to use them as an excuse for morbid introspection, pessimism, self-pity, depression, and fear of moving on for the Lord.
Mature Christian Believers Grow Through Failure. They Will Act On Certain Truths:
- We are accepted by the Lord based on Grace, not our performance or skills.
- We are human, we are not anywhere near perfect, nor will we ever be.
- God still has a plan for our lives. God is not through with us yet, and we need to get on with His plan.
