“For prophecy never had it’s origin in
the will of man, but men spoke from
God as they were carried along by
the Holy Spirit” 2 Peter 1:21
I love this quote because I recently faced failure and I was left wondering why? I was having trouble believing it that I failed, and was wondering why he let me fail when I thought it was what he wanted me to do. I had left it up to God whether I was to pass or to fail, but I tried my best. He shut the door, but I couldn’t understand why. I read this over and over again and I understood that he shut the door for a reason. I don’t know the reason yet, but I have to trust him. Failure doesn’t define you, it’s what you do with it that defines you.
