Almost sounds like an oxymoron-failure birthing fruit. How can failure, which can be interpreted as the end of a thing, birth anything? That is the beauty of our Savior, there can be beauty behind a closed door!
“Better is the end of a thing than its beginning…” Ecclesiastes 7:8 Failure is often associated with the end of something or opportunity, like the denial of a job or denial of an opportunity. However, consider this perspective, what was the Lord protecting you from? What if this moment of perceived failure was God’s protection? The fruit of failure can very well be God’s protection. We have a desired plan and path but we must trust more in the Creator of our path.
As one journey ends, it creates room for another to begin. A denied job opportunity could be God’s direction. As He steers you away from one thing, He is directing you to another. Imagine this moment of perceived failure being fruit-full. Re-imagine this moment of that closed door as being God’s good thing for your life.
Failure can birth so many lessons learned! Failure can lead to the true understanding of repentance. The fruit of failure can birth an deeper understanding of submission. Failure teaches you how to get up again. It can lead to endurance, character, and hope-these are the fruit(s) of failure.
Our failure leads to His glory!
Reshape that moment of failure, reshape that end, that closed door, and the denial of that opportunity and know that it places you one step close to learning how the Lord, your God, is your strength and your portion, forever.
Peace and Blessings
