Yesterday, a friend felt failure. She cleans condos on Saturdays and she wasn’t able to complete the job. Her body and spirit failed.
“Accept each day exactly as it comes to you. By that, I mean not only the circumstances of your day but also the condition of your body. Your assignment is to trust Me absolutely, restin in My sovereignty and faithfulness.
On some days, your circumstances and your physical condition feel out of balance: The demands on you seem far greater than your strength. Days like that present a choice between two alternatives—giving up or relying on Me. Even if you wrongly choose the first alternative, I will not reject you. You can turn to Me at any point, and I will help you crawl out of the mire of discouragement. I will infuse My strength into you moment by moment, giving you all that you need for this day. Trust Me, by relying on My empowering Presence.” Psalm 42:5; 2 Corinthians 13:4; Jeremiah 31:25 – Jesus is Calling by Sarah Young
This was yesterday’s devotional. We will always feel failure at some point in our day or weeks. These scriptures remind us to rely on God in each failure. To accept each step regardless of the fall. Accepting that we can’t complete something hurts. We don’t want to admit that we fail. We need to remember that we are not perfect, and we can’t do it all.
Encourage those when you can.
