Jiim Rohn, the late great American philosopher, said, “If you meet a guy who has messed up his life for forty years, you’ve just met a guy who could change your life for the better. Sit down with him and take notes.” Indeed, lessons from failures are very valuable! Welcome to today’s prophetic devotional encounter! Note that bad times, have scientific values. These are occasions a good learner no matter what you are going through or will go through, learns from every event in your life.
Is it not always said, that: sweet are the uses of adversity? Yes, there is indeed honey in every lion you battle along your pathway of progress. Like the life of Samson, there are times your battle becomes hard riddles to interpret. Never mind, a solution is coming! The difficulties, hardship and trials of life are encounters on the road to fortune – they are positive blessings! They knit your spiritual muscles more firmly and teach you reliance on the Almighty God. Just by wrestling with an athlete who is superior to us, we can increase our own strength, and learn his secrets. Life has many secrets you will yet discover.
So, stop lamenting! Stop pitying yourself! Adversity is the breeding ground for miracles! Yesterday’s failures can become today’s fortunes! Forget that mistake! Oh! Can’t you see your glorious tomorrow? As I write this piece now, I have a strong witness that someone is about to celebrate!
Refuse to poison your expensive future with the agony of the past! Trials, pain and failure teach men lessons, which they would never learn without them. Don’t miss the lesson! Hold on!
