I thought that title might get your attention! Sadly, so much of our world believes this lie. As a result people are hamstrung and buried in lies and deception that almost set their feet in concrete! I want to communicate a few things about this.
What exactly is failure? One thing is for sure - the enemy of our soul will try and communicate to you that it is permanent. That you will never achieve, be successful, or go anywhere with your life.
Listen! Failure is not a PERSON, it is an EVENT!
When we understand this truth - we can all do something about our failures and past mistakes. You are not a failure! You may have failed but this doesn't define you for the rest of your life! Jesus made it clear that the Devil is the 'father of all lies'. He is an expert at taking a hold of our failures and then trying to define our future with them. Don't buy into it - not ONE BIT! Jeremiah the Prophet said these words, "I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not evil, to give you a future and a hope". Now how's that for encouragement!
Whose report are we going to believe? The Lord's report - a future and a hope - or the devils lies - your life is a permanent failure? It's time to renew your mind today - break off all lies and deception in the name of Jesus and begin to believe the Lord's report! Why don't you pray this prayer right now:
"Father I reject all lies and deception around my mind. I break off all demonic forces in the name of Jesus Christ. I repent of believing a false report around my future and I choose to believe the LORD'S report for my life. I now renew my mind and thankyou Lord for a future and a hope, in Jesus mighty name! AMEN."
