Hope from your failure

The sting of failure hurts.  In relationships, in our career, in ministry there is often failure.  The harder we work, or the more we pray, it seems the more we can miss the mark.  Then there are the expectations we have of burdens and hopes we’ve prayed months or years about only to see things not progress or even get worse.  Dear ones, everyone experiences this discouragement, and  including the giants of faith, such as Moses, Elijah, David Livingston and, most importantly, Jesus.  God does take us down roads where things get worse before they get better.  But the accusations of failure are the lie from the pit of hell.

Isaiah 49:4 Then I said, ‘I have labored in vain, I have spent my strength for nothing and in vain;
Yet surely my just reward [is] with the LORD, And my work with my God.’ “

 So give a listen to David Wilkerson’s great sermon:

Audio: “I Have Labored in Vain: A Message for All Who Carry a Sense of Failure

Here’s the text of the sermon as well.
