My failure is His. How often I forget that! Everything that I am belongs to Him, so my failure also belongs to Him. But I must give it to Him. He understands where my failure began, and I know that He alone can make it right. Because I love Him, and my heart longs to follow only His will, He takes my failure and reclaims me. He is my Lord, and I will rejoice in His promise of restoration. Today I step forward from doubt caused by failure, and move forward in faith in Him.
“Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans” (Proverbs 16:3). He knows my heart, and he knows that any decision I make I will give to Him. I yearn for my plan to be His plan, and if it is not, I pray that He changes it. I want to be established in Him. No more failure because He is my conquering King. I can do all things through Him. He gives me the strength for this day and for the next. Then suddenly I will see His plan alive in my life. One step, and one day at a time has brought its reward.
