I Hate Failure

“I. Hate. Failure.”

That’s how I planned to start my short devotional talk last Sunday evening before our monthly Moments in Missions.

Someone far closer to the front of the auditorium “captured” the podium before I took even one step into the auditorium! Chalk that one up to befuddled communication. 😆

So my talk will need to wait. But in the interest of trying to encourage you, let me give you the verses I thought to use.

Luke 22:32
But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren.
John 17:9,11,15,20
I pray for them. Holy Father, keep through Your name those whom You have given Me. I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one. I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word.
Hebrews 7:25
Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.
1 John 2:1
My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.
1 John 5:12
He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
Philippians 4:13
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Philippians 2:13
For it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.

To me, those sound very fitting to those who have failed; that is, to people such as I.
