It doesn’t take much faith to stay where you are. It has never and will never take much faith to stay the same.
Most of us claim to want to be better, yet we don’t want to change anything. I know that’s how I am. I want to be this great person, but I’ve yet to change my circumstances. I’ve yet to even try for that matter.
I’m too afraid to fail is the reason. Most people are afraid of failure. But I’ve realized that it is of no merit to be able to say I’ve never failed when I’ve never attempted anything either. Where is the honor in that reality?
God created us to be more, to want more. When we don’t, we’re just being, well failures actually. Truth is, you don’t show that you need God when you remain the same. That’s the real issue with staying where you are. You exercise your “power” and not God’s.
The only person that truly fails is the one who is too afraid to try and succeed.
