This promise never fails amid failure.
Henry Ford once said failure was the opportunity to begin again more intelligently, and Thomas Edison was no stranger to failure. As Edison worked on his various inventions, he failed many times.
In 1914, a fire destroyed Edison’s factory, equipment, and much of the record of his work. Edison surveyed the damage the next day and concluded, “We can start over anew. All of our mistakes are burned up.” His failures did not stop Edison from moving on.
As a part of life, you and I will experience failures. We will be overlooked by the Hiring Manager. Our plans may unravel rather than work. Those whom we think to be loyal friends may walk away. Failures come, and amid these moments, it may seem everything is crumbling around us; however, there is one promise which will never fail us.
Whether we are succeeding or failing, the Lord is with us.
- Deuteronomy 31 promises the Lord will personally go ahead of us.
- Solomon writes in Proverbs 12 the Godly are deeply rooted.
- Jesus says in Matthew 28:20, “and be sure of this, I am with you always, even to the very end of the age.”
- The writer of Hebrews quotes the Lord as saying, “I will never leave you. I will never abandon you.”
Failure may cause everything else to crumble, but the Lord will stick around.
