What if he did this to make the riches of his glory known to the objects of his mercy, whom he prepared in advance for glory. Romans 9:23
If does not, therefore depend on man’s desire or effort, but on God’s mercy… I raised you up for this very purpose, that I might display my power in you and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth. Romans 9:16-17
Try as I might to succeed, I just won’t without your blessing, Father.
I’ve strived for many things in my life, I know you’ve seen me…
When I think about the moments of defeat, and wonder why I failed, I know see why. I see you in these moments now… but when I was going through the steps to failure I never once looked for you and try to do it all on my own. I understand now that your mercy can not be earned, ever.
Everything for your glory.
I never thought I’d be thankful for failures, losses, defeats, unanswered prayers…
But I am.
I really am.
