Recently, I read an article listing six things to do when you feel like a failure.
- Be honest about your struggle.
- Remember you’re not alone.
- Take a nap.
And three other ways to get over the failure-slump and conquer the world.
Thankfully, God’s Word tells us only one way, a more powerful way to conquer the giants of inadequacy that often wake up with us every morning.
“We are more than conquerors through Him who loved us” (Romans 8:37).
Are you anxious over a wayward child or an unknown future? Haunted by a past that continually resurfaces? Struggle with a besetting sin? Battle against shattered hopes?
In other words. . .
It is things present?
Or things to come?
God’s Son hung on a cross and displayed in humility and agony a love we cannot comprehend.
That love erased our past, surrounds the present, and guards the future.
His love conquered.
Despite the past, present, or future, you and I are more than conquerors through Him who loved us like that.
We’re failures turned conquerors through Someone Else’s perfect love.
“I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come . . . shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:38-39)
