Today’s message from God Calling -A.J. Russell, reminds us that our Lord and our Heavenly Father, both know the pain of loneliness, and of failure. God never fails and Jesus doesn’t either, but our failure to recognize their love for us, our faith falling short, and our desertion(s), all are grievous to them both.
The message is encouraging, because it tells us that we can’t learn true humility until we fail. So, that failure is the door the lessons of humility opening for us. Jesus tells us that whoever humbles himself will be exalted. (Matt. 23:12) Isn’t that the greatest news you’ve heard today?! There you are, sitting right in the middle of some “failure,” and it’s actually the door to your exaltation; to your glory! Let me tell you something about our eternal God. Everything about Him is eternal! That includes the glory. That means there’s glory in everything-because He’s in everything. So we go, from strength to strength, from glory to glory. (Psalm 84:7, 2 Cor. 3:18)Well, don’t just sit there! Get up! Get up! Praise God! Go through the door and learn and grow in the humility. The next door is Glory!! Praise God!
