Just some thoughts for this week. I was so privileged to go to the Passing the Mantle Conference in Bartlett, IL this past week. It was so…amazing. From morning until night the Lord spoke through great men of God words of conviction, encouragement, and enlightenment.
This is one of those times that I will be digesting for months. I have 16 pages of typed notes. (I’ll be sharing some of them with you in the weeks to come. 🙂 ) The preachers were so anointed. They included great men like Pastor Gonzales, Pastor Sisco, Pastor Hernandez, Pastor Black, Pastor Hoffman, Pastor Yonce, and Pastor Boettcher.
The thought that I want to share with you this week is this: Your future is not based on your failures. It is based on your Faith.
It is so easy to fall prey to Satan’s attacks when you fail. When you make a mistake, Satan whispers words like ‘Failure, You’ll never get it right.’ ‘You’re so stupid.’ The list goes on. And we fall for it. The thing is, we don’t have to listen. God doesn’t care about our failures so much as our faith. He doesn’t want a perfect vessel for His service, He wants a WILLING vessel.
Jesus loves you and that’s why He came here to die for you. He conquered from the cross for YOU. He conquered the grave and rose from the dead all for YOU. He gave YOU His Spirit and His power (Acts 2:38). He even gives you His mind (I Cor 2:16). And, as you press nearer to Him, He shares His heart with you as well.
Remember, it’s not about your failure, it’s about your Faith. Your Faith determines your future!
