That statement completely blows my mind.
Sometimes our failing is for others.
Failing is often painful for me and when I fail others it seems to be even more painful. To think that me failing is actually so someone else may grow is a hard pill to swallow. I have come to realize that failing is an essential part of life and one that shouldn’t be neglected or avoided. When you realize that failing is actually beneficial it starts to become natural to risk.
Romans 8:28 says, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
Risk is a word that carries pain, heartache, excitement and whimsy all wrapped into one simple action. Risk is something we love to talk about but often find ourselves struggle to follow through with. When I fail others, I feels like it is more of an issue because it shows I don’t have my life together. But, people close to you need to see that side of you… You don’t have your life together.
God uses failing to unseat strongholds in our lives. Sometimes failing others allows strongholds to be removed their lives or it at least stirs up their comfortable life to that they start to seek God’s voice.
Part of failing is standing back up.
Failing others creates a space to stand back up, to build the relationship and to spend time with God together on the failure.
Would you agree that failing is healthy?
How have you failed and seen God move in exponential ways in your life?
