It May Seem Like You've Failed
The book of Acts, chapter 16, verses 27 and 28: "And the keeper of the prison, awaking from sleep and seeing the prison doors open, supposing the prisoners had fled, drew his sword and was about to kill himself. But Paul called with a loud voice saying, 'Do yourself no harm, for we are all here.'"
This guard was given something to keep and it appeared what was entrusted to him escaped or got out of his control. Is there something God entrusted to you that you think you've lost or maybe failed God? It may seem like you've failed, but I want to encourage you. As Paul said to the Romans, nothing can separate you from the love of God.
As that voice came out of Paul's cell to keep the jailer from giving up, my brother, my sister, do yourself no harm. Let the grace of God restore your faith. Everything God has given to you is still here.
It's time to pray.
