I’ve learned that I just can’t trust myself anymore. Can’t afford to even try. Neither can you. If you feel like a failure, excellent! As you quickly realize the truth. You failed because you relied on yourself, not on God.
It’s a great lesson.
Jesus came down, died was resurrected so that we would never need to rely on ourselves to please God, live right and overcome anything ever again. He did it for us.
Once you are born again, you have crossed over to a new life. A life that draws it’s strength from Jesus Christ Himself. A life that will never be subject to failure again. Let go of self-sufficiency, and become God reliant. That’s the way to succeed as a Christian.
