REASONS FOR FAILURE

 

 


Genesis 3:12-13
The man said, "The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me from the tree, and I ate." Then the LORD God said to the woman, "What is this you have done?" And the woman said, "The serpent deceived me, and I ate."
  


Talk unbelief, and you will have unbelief; but talk faith, and you will have faith. According to the seed sown will be the harvest. Ellen G. White

 

In the next couple of days, we will alight some reasons we give when we fail but the question is- are the reasons genuine enough for us to fail?

 

Excuses:

Sometimes we make excuses to avoid responsibility for our actions.

We make excuses for things we did wrong, times we failed, things we don't want to do, situations we don't want to be in.  How many times have you told someone "I forgot" when in reality you just didn't want to do what was asked of you?

Making excuses isn't a good practice and it is especially dangerous when we start making excuses in our spiritual lives.

  • We make excuses when we don't want to obey (like commands to forgive, or to stop gossiping)
  • We make excuses when we don't want to go where God sends us (it may be a mission field, or it may be a visit to a friend, or it may be church)
  • We make excuses when we don't want to believe what God tells us (that all things work for the good)
If you want to be greatly used of God you must be willing to follow wherever He leads you.  It's time to stop hiding behind the excuses we are so good at making. It's time to stop resisting and start following. It's time to stop saying, "I can't" and start saying, "He can". It's time to stop debating faith and start practicing it.
