I shall not be moved…

Failure is inevitable. Even the greatest of the greatest have once failed at something during their lifetime. How we react to failure and our attitude towards failure is what makes all the difference. Our attitude and perspectives towards failure should be similar to that of a baby learning to walk for the first time. Babies don’t always walk at their first attempt: they fall, (cry if need be), crawl, get back up and try again. As soon as they take that first step, their hearts are filled with joy and their faces lights up with smile and happiness. At that very moment, the failures they encountered before the first step no longer matters.

Refuse to be moved by rejection and failure. Instead let it fuel you to improve yourself and ignite in you the zeal to keep progressing. The only thing you should be moved by is the word of God and His promises concerning your life. It does not matter how many rejections you have gotten, how many “No’s” you have received, or how many “thank you for your time. We have moved on with a different candidate” you have received: remain steadfast and firm in His word. Let your heart be filled with praise to God because in due season what is yours will come to you.

God will never give away what belongs to you to someone else.

Let the word of God dwell richly in you when you find yourself in unpleasant and unforeseen situations. Be bold and confident in God’s promises regarding your life, and let not rejection from men cause you to start doubting your trust in God. Let your faith in God remain unwavering, and continuously reaffirm His blessings towards your life:

Some words of affirmation:

  1. Romans 8:28 – All things are working together for my good because I love God, and I am called according to His purpose.
  2. Psalms 62:6 – The lord is my rock and my salvation, He is my fortress. I shall not be moved.
  3. 1 John 4:4 – I am of God, and I shall overcome because greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world.
  4. Psalm 121:2 – My help comes from the Lord, the maker of Heaven and Earth.

Do not dwell and invest a lot of time beating yourself up about failure and rejections. Remain prayerful and thankful in failure just as you would in successThe beauty about failure is that it gives us insights on what not to do next time. When next you fail, see it as an opportunity to grow, and a beautiful stepping stone to your breakthrough.
