The Night Light for tonight is – FAILURE
Yes, FAILURE. Wait a minute how can the word failure be a comfort in the night? Very easily…consider this my precious friend – the opposite of failure is VICTORY!
In our failure and weakness, God can show himself victorious and His glory can shine. Everyday we fail. Everyday we sin. Everyday we determine in our minds that today is the day…I will eat right, I will exercise, I will spend time with the Lord and on & on.
And everyday we fail at doing what we – in a grandiose fashion – set out to do for day. This can come due to weakness in the face of temptation or just flat out lack of self-control. But know this – God tells us through the Apostle Paul in 2 Corinthians 12:9,
“And He has said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.’ Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.”
Let go of your failures of the day and be confident that our Abba Father will continue on showing HIS victory by the power of Christ. Allow Him to work and allow HIM to shine through you.
