When Failure Strikes
Failure – we don’t like it; we don’t want it; we go to great lengths in trying to hide it, to ignore it, or to rationalize it.
In doing so, we resist or miss the opportunity to be conformed to God’s image in the midst of such failure or setback.
God used Moses’ failure to reshape him being a self-dependent, self-controlled man. He also used him to be a God-dependent, God-controlled man, who God could be use to expand God's kingdom on earth.
How did God accomplish such reshaping? By signing Moses up for a master’s degree in character development, which degree consisted of two primary courses:
(i) advanced obscurity; and
(ii) remedial waiting.
Are you willing "to wait in obscurity" for God to do God's work in you?
