Why do we have failure?
Why do we have failure?
Failure is a result of the fall of man. We no longer live in a perfect world. God is perfect. He made us perfect but we chose in the Garden of Eden to be self-sufficient and independent. We broke our relationship with God and listened to the serpent and not God. We wanted to make our own decisions. We disobeyed God’s instructions. Because of Adam and Eve’s disobedience, sin entered the world and thus failure was a result. When sin entered the world through Adam and Eve, then came not only failure, but death, disease, destruction, dysfunction, dishonesty and distrust. We must manage against the fall.
We all enter the world in the fallen, sinful state so everyone fails and has the fallen sinful nature in them. Everyone will make a bad judgment. Everyone will not execute a project as planned. Everyone will not follow through to completion. Everyone will make a decision based upon a sinful lust or desire. Everyone will make a decision based upon pride. Everyone will make an idol out for themselves of pride, possessions, power and position. Everyone will fail. We must manage against the fall.
How do we manage against the fall?
But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:57
Through the Lord Jesus Christ we have victory over the fall. HE has redeemed you, HIS blood shed on the cross was for all the sins of the world. You have victory over the curse of the fall. You have the blessings through Christ Jesus of being sealed with the Holy Spirit. You are set apart for that day. You will go through the fire but will not be burned. You will be tested but not fall.
Jesus came to defeat the works of the enemy, the curse. HE has defeated sin and death. You have victory through Jesus Christ. You have victory over rejection, persecution, condemnation, injustice, abuse, shame, guilt, fear, worry, anxiety and loss. Your victory, profit and gain is through Christ Jesus, not the curse of this world. You have gained the pardon for your sin through Jesus Christ and gained eternal life.
You manage against the fall by making Jesus Christ Lord. If you remain Lord, you are still living under the fall. Victory comes when you surrender ALL, everything, and make Jesus Christ Lord. Say Jesus is Lord! Jesus is Lord! Jesus is Lord! You now have managed against the fall. You are sealed by the Holy Spirit. HE is your hope.
