Father, as I press towards the mark of the higher calling in you (Philippians 13:12 – 14) and I seek after the Kingdom of God (Matthew 6:33), I find my inner voices reminding me of my past failures. Failed marriages, failed businesses, failed projects and failed relationships all come flooding back to me as I work to set plans to fulfill my God given purpose.
The feelings of disappointment that each failure caused begins to sweep over me like a storm driven wave. I end up thinking, “how can the God of all possibly use me to accomplish greater?” I find my steps slowing, my optimistic outlook weaning and my spiritual esteem faltering.
Then Lord, I consider the life of David. He was an adultery, a cold-hearted murderer and less than a stellar parent, yet you Father God, gave him the title of “a man after my own heart.” (Acts 13:22 – 23) Then I know there’s hope for me!
You Father God are not a respecter of person (Acts 10:34). If you allowed David to be the beginning of the greatest dynasty in history and showed him favor despite his failures, you will do the same for me if I do everything you want me to do.
So, I press towards the greatness that has been deposited in me! Strengthen me today to continue to move forward and accomplishing one victory after another! In Jesus name, I pray. Amen.
Acts 10:34 – 35
