No reason to be a failure – Part 1
Genesis 1:28 “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”
God created man and gave him the power to have dominion over all the creatures. He deposited in man the implements of success in order to live a successful life both spiritual and physical.
When man sinned against God in the Garden of Eden. The glory and the power of dominion were taken away from man by Satan. God then decided that before man would accomplish anything, He must pay the price. Because of the love that God has for him. When He saw the suffering of man, He sent man’s glory and also the power of dominion that man has lost Satan.
The book of Colossians 2:14 “Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and nailing it to his cross.” Jesus Christ came and defeated Satan and took away from him, man’s lost glory, as well as the power of dominion. Jesus restored the position or man’s divine nature to man. Because of this restoration, man has no reason again to be a failure, because Christ has paid the price.
What is Failure?
Failure is a state of not being adequate or successful. It is an opposite of success. Also non-performance of what is normal.
Failure is a secondary thing. There must be performance before failure. If the performance is not successful, failure will be the result. It is not your situation that makes you a failure but your inability to apply the right wisdom or useful effort that would grant your success that makes you a failure.
Do Not Accept Defeat
Beloved, you are not created to be a failure. But God created you to prosper.
Do not be defeated when you are not defeated.
Your problem is a visitor and one day it will pack up its load and go. Because every problem has an expiring date.
Be progressive minded. Don’t settle at the minimum level when God has placed you at the maximum level. Strive to make your best better because there is no best in achievement.
You have nothing to do with your parental background. Forget about their poverty level. God can use you to break the yoke of poverty in your family. Don’t allow your failure to sit you down but sit your situation down with courage.
Hold on to your vision and always be excited over that vision no matter how little it may be. With determination couple with your pursuit, you will one day achieve your vision.
Friend, no matter how dark a night may look, don’t give Up, God must give you a solution. Because He is a God of solution.
See your situation with your spiritual eyes, where it has a divine solution. What you call your dog is what it will answer. Value your God more than that failure for He is the Only One that can help you.
Rebel Against Your Bad Situation
Don’t be comfortable with your bad situation, rebel against it. Until you are tired of your bad situation, your bad situation will not be tired to you. As a Civil servant, you are due for promotion and you are not promoted, don’t relax, find out why you are not promoted. If it is because you are not committed to your duties immediately rebel against your bad attitude, make a change and be more serious with your job. When you make these changes, go back to God and report your case to Him. As a God of solution, He will grant your request.
As a student, you always fail your examination because you don’t read your books. Please don’t relax, rebel against this bad habit. Start reading your books and Almighty God will give you the wisdom to pass your papers in Jesus name.
Or are you the type that after reading you will not understand what you read? Don’t worry, as you are reading this message now, God is definitely going to give you wisdom, as He promised in the book of James 1:5 “if any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraided not; and it shall be given to him.”
