in another version of the Bible, it says “Your failure is not your future. Defeat is not your destiny. You maybe knocked down, seven times but rise up, ’cause you are born to win.”
This passage is very interesting as it can be motivational. With success as one’s destiny, this passage promotes optimism that whatever we do in our lives, we will never go down as long as we keep up with it. It’s all within us really. If we ruin our paths in life, then we will sink and we will be destined absolutely to fail.
I do think of how my life can go on smoothly without any worries in mind. Of course as someone who believes that there is a supernatural being out there watching for us, I pray that I can be assisted through all my struggles in life and not just merely wish because wishes don’t necessarily become granted. And I have to acknowledge everyone and everything that have contributed towards my successes and failures and i always consider to use them next time I face more challenges.
But we can’t just give credit to something or someone for our destiny to succeed. We ourselves are the most important element towards that goal. We should always be aware of it. God is not a genie. God is a motivator and a helper. And our role is to use our freedom in order to meet our dreams in life which God would want us to attain anyways.
