Refuse Failure – By David Ibiyeomie

You need to know that God did not create you to be a mediocre on earth nor did he create you to struggle through life; your redemption in Christ makes you a person of value.

Romans 8:30 (KJV) Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.

Matthew 5:14 (KJV)  Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

You are not a man to be pitied; you are created to command the envy of the world. Though many have come across failure, the Bible assures that all things will always work together for good to them that love Him. If you are a lover of God, a testimony is coming out of that seemingly hopeless situation for you. There’s room for you at the top, do not settle for failure — react against it! If your desire is to make a mark in life, you must be prepared to go beyond the average and be determined to crush whatever wants to cheat you out of your own place at the top. 

Matthew 11:12 (KJV) And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.

Let failure instigate you to fight back and be determined to be the best you can be in life. Rise up now, react and refuse to be a failure! React against failure, because it takes a reaction to experience a manifestation. Forget past failures. God has no remembrance of your past failures so you also have to stop counting them. 

Philippians 3:13-14 (KJV)  Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

Failure is an event, so let it pass away like other events. Do not allow it to keep you on the floor. The past is gone; learn from it, live in the present, and look forward to the future.

Luke 15:20 (KJV)  And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.

The prodigal son got to the lowest ebb in life. He was begging for pigs’ food to eat, it was not available! Productive thinking brought him out of pigsty state. Friend, you need to know how to reason to come out of every prison of life. You must be a divine think-tank. If something confronts you, sit down and think your way out. Your reasoning will definitely bring solution.

Also, find out what others are doing to succeed. Ask questions and observe those who have gone ahead of you. Listen to people who have made it following God’s principles and learn from them. Be strengthened by them and enrich your information bank.

By observation, your thinking is upgraded. Listen to tapes. Read anointed books. Build your life on proper information. Do not run your Christianity on outdated information. By doing this, you react to failure and it births your revolution — a product of conscious reaction. No reaction, No revolution! 

I prophesy to you that that issue that has kept you on the floor will birth a testimony in Jesus name –Amen!

God bless you
