Successful Failures

 

(Revelation 21:7) “The person who conquers will inherit these things. I will be his God, and he will be my son. But people who are cowardly, unfaithful, detestable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars will find themselves in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur. This is the second death.”

(1 Samuel 10:26-27) “God had encouraged some young men to become followers of Saul, and when he returned to his hometown of Gibeah, they went with him. But some worthless fools said, ‘How can someone like Saul rescue us from our enemies?’ They did not want Saul to be their king, and so they didn’t bring him any gifts. But Saul kept calm.

 

 

 

Sounds weird, right? Being a success at failing? It actually could be used as an insult, and I have been at the receiving end of it. Basically, you are told that you end up destroying everything you touch. I have actually known people like that, who seemed to always fail at anything they tried, and eventually, it was wise not to partner with them on any business endeavor. But no matter how many times you fail according to the world if you succeed at one thing, and one thing alone, you will inherit all things and be accepted as God’s Son.

Make sure you overcome all the devil throws at you for having chosen Christ as your only God, and I guarantee you a fruitful and successful outcome.

Saul was neither a warrior nor a rich man, yet God chose him to be King. Many thought he would be a failure and expressed their resentment. However, God raised up chosen men to support and encourage him, by touching their hearts. This is exactly what God will do with you when you decide to succeed in obeying God.

A successful failure is actually someone who can take their setbacks to catapult them to the top. Every insult and rejection drives you to try harder and not to give up until those who mocked you, see you succeed. They might never praise you, as they will have to swallow their words and pride will stop them from admitting they were wrong, but God will raise up others who will honor you in public. I have lived this as well, and believe me, it’s worth all the rejection and all the insults I have experienced in the past.

My passion in College was to be a Chiropractor. I was fascinated by how simply adjusting the spine, the body could heal itself from sicknesses that doctors could only solve with medication or surgery. I successfully failed at this goal, and I admit that for a few years I allowed Satan to keep me under his lies, but God needed me to follow my higher calling as a Pastor. I wanted to heal people by just adjusting their spine as a Chiropractor, but God now has allowed me to heal lives both physically and spiritually by simply praying and laying hands on them.

 

 

By failing at what you want to do in life, you might end up doing what you were supposed to do according to God’s plan.
