Devotional: When We Fail

Christian Women's Devotion on Overcoming Failure


My heart goes out to Peter. He loved Jesus, but in a moment of weakness, denied and disowned Him. How his heart must have ached when he realized what he had done. How Jesus' heart must have ached knowing Peter would deny him.

Peter is just like you and me. There were times in his life when he fell short of the mark. But he didn't give up on his faith; He repented and kept going on with God. We can too. We all fail at times. We all fall short of the mark. But we don't have to stay in our failing. We can choose to rise up again and carry on with God. God already knows when we will fail. He is there with arms open wide ready to embrace us when we call out to Him. He forgives and restores us. When you do fail, don't feel as though God could never use you again. That's a lie from Satan. God does not give up on us that easily. God will raise us up again, to walk in sweet fellowship with Him.

Run into His open arms and allow Him to wipe away your tears and heal you, to be the woman of God that you are.

The Lord upholds all those [of His own] who are falling and raises up all those who are bowed down. - Psalm 145:14 (AMPC)

Though at times I may fail,
I pray you'll pick me up,
So I can carry on in faith
And receive your unfailing love.
