    This is what the Lord gave me not only about failure but success as well.
    And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. 29 For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, Rom. 8:28-29 NASB
    As someone who suffers with an anxiety disorder, it is what our Father perceives correctly of what I think and do and his purposes for us that counts not what other’s maybe perceiving. That has got me through some pretty tough times. Should also note that prescribed anti anxiety medication has helped tremendously to get this point.

    Thank you Dr. Mullen! This message is so timely for me today! I recently graduated from college as a “mature” student, and have been looking for work ever since. Not been very successful yet. So I took a job that was not what I had studied for, and had no interest in. I spend a weekend praying about it before I accepted the position. I was sure that God had given me the go ahead with this job. But when I started, I realized I had made a big mistake. I agonized for a whole week, then finally phoned a friend. She wisley told me it was ok to think you hear something from God, and then realized it was a mistake. My way up to now would be to stubornly keep working, trying to force it to work for me, all because I believed that this was God’s will for me. Now I know that when I make a mistake, I have to change something. So I admit to myself that I was wrong, I fix the mistake,(in this case quit the job), and move on. I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off of my shoulders! Thank you for this reminder of the apostle Paul, and all the doors that were closed to him, even though he heard from God. Awesome!

    Like most people I’m afraid to fail. Though sometimes I wonder if I’m just as afraid of success, but that’s another message. But I do keep trying to push forward. I just wish I would have discovered this blessing sooner in life. Though, not attempting anything, could be a failure in and of itself. Failure to do what you can, to push forward, to give it your best effort.

    Wow, the Holy Spirit sure is consistent! Our pastor preached on this very same topic, last night (less than 24 hours ago) and he used the exact same question, “How do you spell faith? R I S K”.

    DR.GRANT,
    WHEN I WAS 40 I WAS MEDICALLY RETIRED FROM MY POSITION AS AN EMPLOYMENT OFFICER FOR THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT . THIS WAS CAUSED BY A NUMBER OF EPILEPTIC SEIZURES I HAD FOR A 3 YEAR PERIOD. AFTER BEING ” RETIRED” , I FELT LIKE A FAILURE . I LOVED THE JOB I DID AND, I DID IT WELL BY GOD’S GRACE. BUT NOW I WAS JOBLESS. I TURNED TO THE LORD FOR HELP. HE GAVE ME A SCRIPTURE TO MEMORIZE . PROVERBS 3:4 & 5. HE WANTED ME TO TRUST HIM IN ALL THINGS. THE LORD LED ME TO LEAD A HOME BIBLE STUDY/PRAYER MEETING AND IT LASTED 9 FULL YEARS. GOD HAS TAUGHT ME SO MUCH MORE AS I LEARNED TO DEPEND ON HIM FOR ANY ESTEEM I WAS IN NEED OF.
