Making a fresh start

Rebounding from a failure

Job said, "My days have passed, my plans are shattered, so are the desires of my heart"

Ever had a day like that-

We all fail---

You’e not a failure till you give up

Never give up- We keep going

Causes of Failure

1. We don’t plan ahead- if your failing to plan, your planning to fail

Prov 27:12------Prov. 16:9

One of the reasons we fail, WE DON”T PLAN

It wasn’t raining when Noah built the ARK

WE don’t plan to get old, retirement, accident, college,

WE’ll always fail---IF WE DON”T PLAN

Jesus talked about a man who started building—didn’t have enough to finish

2. When we think we’ve arrived

Prov. 18:18

Pride is the beginning of Failure-

Pride brings an unteachable SPIRIT

Success BRINGS

Arrogance and Complacancy

Prov. 15:22

THE WHOLE, “GOD TOLD ME” movement

If it was really God---Seek Godly Counsel

Talk to somebody who’s smart---DON”T TALK TO LOSERS

Talk to people who’ve been there

Many of you get counsel, YOURE COUNSEL STINKS

Satan doesn’t have to come against you when you’re prideful

BIBLE SAYS, “GOD RESISITS THE PROUD”

3. Afraid to take risks- Prov. 25:29

When you start thinking about how you’re going to fail—You already have

FEAR SETS US UP TO BE A LOSER

“Without faith, it’s impossible to please God.”

The BIGGER THE RISK, THE BIGGER THE REWARD,

Ever been to VEGAS

I want on my TOMBSTONE---AT LEAST THE SUCKER TRIED+++

Wanna KNOW how Ugly GUYS MARRY Beautiful Women----

All the good looking guys are too busy looking in the mirror

Balding, Beergut, BUBBA- Ain’t got nothing to lose---ASKS HER OUT

Bigger the risk, Bigger the reward

Security makes us MEDIOCRE----

Seniority makes us COMPLACENT

Take risks

4. WE give up to soon---Pizza Hut says, If it’s not at your door 30 min, FREE

We need Patience and Perserverence

Many times during TRYING TIMES, PEOPLE QUIT TRYING

Senior Year---Regional football Playoff GAME----Ahead 10 points 50 sec.

“The lazy have trouble all through life” Prov---

If at first you don’t succeed... UNLESS YOUR SKYDIVING

Thomas Edison- 10,000 elements before he got to INCADESCENT lightbulb

I didn’t fail- I found 10,000 things, that didn’t work

Christians give up on everything- EASY AINT IN YOUR BIBLE---yolk

Job, ministry, career, kids- none of it’s easy

ABRAHAM LINCOLN FAILURES----

It takes GOD TO HANG IN THERE, RAISE GOOD KIDS, STAY MARRIED

5. When we don’t listen to GOD----Prov 14:12

God’s word is filled with guidelines----But we listen to our FEELING

God’s never told me anything---That agreed with my FEELINGS

PREACHING HADN”T CROSSED MY MIND-it had God’s

When you consult God----He wont lie---IT WILL BE TRUTH---

US TREASURY---Study THE REAL THING

Get-give---exalt-humbe---first-last

How do we respond to failure

God’s more interested in future than past

1. Accept responsibility for your own failure--- Prov. 28:13

The guy refuses to say I was wrong---CAN NEVER SUCCEED

Say I’m sorry, Fix Things, IT”S MY FAULT----

ADAM—it’s the woman----eve---SATAN----Serpent---didn’t have a leg

Saul- never slept with women---never killed his own----IT”S THE PEOPLE

David- Did all of that-------IT WAS ME___IT WAS MY FAULT
