The difference between failure and success is doing a thing nearly right and doing it exactly right.~Edward C. Simmons
Have you been let down by a role model or an authority figure in your life? How did this affect you relationship with God and your outlook on life? People can inspire us but we can’t put our faith in them. People are not exempt from making mistakes. They will let you down and disappoint you. We are to draw our inspriration from Christ alone. Only then will our strength by renewed day by day when trust in Him.
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.
Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
Have you ever been in a difficult situation and found yourself making promises to God? Did you keep those promises or when things got better did you forget about them? Often when we find ourself on our knees in prayer over a situation, we might promise to change something if God would answer our prayer. If we knew God and what His word says, we would realize that He doesn’t demand us to make bargains over answered prayer. God is God. It is that simple. He knows all things. We have free will to come to Him. He is always there but we often only dig in deep in our time of need. How would you feel if your kids only came to you when they needed something? Are we selfish and one-sided in our relationship with God?

I’ve never known a man worth his salt who in the long run, deep down in his heart, didn’t appreciate the grind, the discipline… I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour – this greatest fulfillment to all he holds dear is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle, victorious.

“Discipline is remembering what you want.”~David Cambell
Samuel was the prophet that God sent to annoint king David. Samuel was a very special person that God used. What you might not know about Samuel was that his mother Hannah struggled with getting pregnant with him. She was married to Elkanah who was marrried to two wives. This is against God’s will, in Genesis 2:24,” A man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife , and they will become one flesh.” Two can’t become one when there is three. Hannah was taunted by the other wife, Peninnah because she had children. Hannah wept and prayed for a child. “Wherefore it came to pass, when the time was come about after Hannah had conceived, that she bare a son, and called his name Samuel, saying, Because I have asked him of the LORD.” 1 Samuel 1:20
This is proof that God hears and answers prayers. We all can be bitter about something in our life but God can use it for good and bring forth something far greater beyond our imagination. Don’t let bitterness take root and build. Take it to cross and lay it at the feet of Christ and feel the weight lifted off.
And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed unto the LORD, and wept sore. 1 Samuel 1:10
