Failure, Favour and Faith.
Hebrew 11: 6 says “And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.”
I love that verse.. It challenges me to live life like so many of our Bible heroes. When we read of Abraham and Sarah, of Joseph, Moses, Joshua, David, Ruth and many others we are inspired by the faith that these people put into action, many times after a crisis of great failure. But the truth is “favour follows failure” if we are willing to believe and keep our faith. Even during the violent and turbulent era of the early church and the writing of the New Testament there are so many miracle stories of failure and favour. If it was good enough for the men and women of the Bible it needs to be real to you and me… today.
