The Musings of a Stubborn Believer

Don’t Even Think of Failure.

This is triumph in three words: 
“exceeding abundantly above” 
(Ephesians 3:20)
Let those words sink in, because this is the Power that makes us strong. 
And there’s nothing higher. 
Think about it. Visualize it. 
If it had been written abundantly high, there could still be a higher. 
Strong could always be outdone by stronger or strongest…
But from above, there’s simply no way to go but down.
We serve a superlative God. 
“But when we give ourselves wholly to God and in our work follow His directions, He makes Himself responsible for its accomplishment. He would not have us conjecture as to the success of our honest endeavors. 
Not once should we even think of failure.
COL 363


  1. Thank you for sharing, Seán. What an awesome thought: "Not once should we even THINK of failure." The next sentence of that quote gives us the key to success… "We are to co-operate with One who knows no failure." Cooperation…

  2. I needed this! Thank you for sharing! 🙂

  3. @Brittney: Amen! His power is ours only when our powers are His… 🙂

    @Kandace: YW, I needed it too. That's why it's here. 🙂
