What makes the difference between average achievers and high producers? What separates those who do great things for God from those who live lives of quiet desperation?
It is the way they respond to failure. People who never experience true success, miss it because they have not properly responded to failures which God has allowed them to experience on the road to their success. There is no achievement without failure along the way.
God never promised every project we try would succeed in the eyes of man. He doesn’t expect everything you touch to turn to gold. So don’t waste time lamenting your failures. Learn from them and get your next assignment from God. It is ok to fail, because if you aren’t failing you probably aren’t growing as a Christian and having much of an impact for the Lord either.
Learning to not waste time in the wake of a failure is a necessary skill for redeeming the time.
