Don’t you know that the day dawns after the night, showers displace drought, and spring and summer follow winter? Then, have hope! Hope forever, for God will not fail you.– C.H. Spurgeon.
There are days when I want to just lay down in bed and do nothing. I sometimes feel tired of the hustle and bustle of life. Moreover, chasing after careers, ambitions, and otherworldly possessions. Thanks to Jesus for saving me! I no longer look at these things as a priority. When my will and body fail me, I look into the hope that is in Chris. And my strength is renewed.
Today’s devotional reading is from the Book of Psalm 73:26. Please, read our recent devotional from the Book of Habbakuk 1:12: The Everlasting Holy God Of All
Asaph, who wrote this Psalm, emphasized how our flesh and heart are corrupted. Furthermore, he compared it to the One who never fails us no matter what happens. We can look into the Scriptures to find examples of human failure. Or probably, we do not have to look any further. Our lives themselves show us evidence and areas of human failures.
Why do you think God left us an instruction book? Paul wrote to the Romans, For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope (Romans 15:4). Also, God knows that at some point we will fail. Further, He sent us His Only Begotten Son to save us from our failures. Jesus Christ is the perfect Saviour that does not fail.
Trust in Him, who never fails
Johnny Cash once said, Jesus will not fail me, I shall not be moved. He is right on this one. Jesus will not fail us. His obedience to the point of death on the cross was a clear manifestation of His great love for us. As it is written, But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8).
So what are you waiting for? Place your trust in Him who never fails – Accept Jesus Now.
This is the time for your journaling. Reflect on these questions. Ask the Holy Spirit to test your faith and your walk with Christ.
Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates? — 2 Corinthians 13:5 KJV.

Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
The Lord’s Prayer: Matthew 6:9-13
