Success & Failure

in Faith/Trust

Faith is not about success or failure. Here's today's Bible Minute.

There is no relationship at all to success and faith. Either you're a person of faith or you're not. Let me take you back to Hebrews chapter 11. At verse 36 he's talking about others suffering mocking, and flogging, and chains, and imprisonment. I mean, this doesn't sound at all like a success story, does it?

If faith is not initiated by success, then the flip side of that is that failure doesn't inhibit faith! You see, faith is never related at all to the things that happen in our lives. Faith is related to our confidence in the righteous character of God -- confidence that fosters hope when our situation around us fosters despair.

So, anchor your faith in God, through His Word! For help with that, visit backtothebible.org.
