In prayers, songs and sermons, some of us may have heard someone say, “I failed You” or “We’ve failed You” regarding our actions and God. That sounds humbling and contrite, but that’s not scriptural. No where in the bible, especially in the new covenant, does it say we’ve failed God.

When we say we’ve failed God, we’re calling ourselves failures. That’s negatively affecting our identity. Why would anyone want to serve or feel worthy to receive anything from a God if we think He thinks of us as failures?

God knew we couldn’t live up to His glorious standard (Rom. 3:23). That’s why He sent His Son Jesus. Jesus lived up to that standard and our belief in Him and what He’s done on our behalf makes us righteous and victorious.

If we miss the mark, let’s not beat ourselves up about it and call ourselves failures. Receive His love, grace, mercy, forgiveness, and righteousness that all came through Jesus. God doesn’t see us as failures, He sees us as overcomers.

1 John 5:4-5 For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world except the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?
