It happens every time. Without fail. Without exception. I bet it’s happened to you also. Just think about it. How often has your god failed you?
Every single time. Every single time I have turned a human being into a god, or turned something man-made into an idol, or placed my trust, expectation, hope, and confidence in anything else but the one true God, my god has failed me. Some people are slow learners. I am one of them. I have made the same mistake countless times. And every single time, that’s right, you’ve got it. It happens every time.

Maybe I should be more careful when I place my trust, expectation, hope, and confidence in a human being. Maybe I should be more choosy with the human I choose. Not so. No matter the human, the same outcome will arise. My god will fail me.

I did it again recently. I made the same mistake. But my mistake wasn’t the human I chose. My mistake was the choice I made to pick a human. And guess what happened? You guessed it. My god failed me. But how can this happen, time and again?

Easily. First, it happens when I fail to remember when I need not to forget. Never, ever, place what belongs to God in heaven in the hands of a human. My love and trust, my loyalty and faithfulness, my belief and confidence, my hope and expectation, must be placed in the Lord first and foremost, above all and everyone else – whether it be someone or something else, or whether it be myself.

Second, it happens not because I forget, but because I don’t realize and recognize what I have done. Hard habits sometimes die slowly, don’t they? And slow habits die hard. It has been a hard lesson for me, and I have to be vigilant to ensure I don’t unconsciously do what I have so often done.

So what is the outcome of this all? My gods fail me. Every human I have ever made into a god, every person or thing I have ever turned into an idol, the result has always been the same. My false gods have failed me, hurt me, let me down, forsaken me, abandoned me, rejected me, broken me, fallen short, messed up, and a zillion other things. Seriously? Yes.

Will the real God please stand up? Jesus. Now we’re talking. Jesus the Christ, King of Kings, Lord of Lords, the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end, well. Yes. The Lord’s love never fails, He never leaves nor forsakes us, He always satisfies, He is all knowing, all powerful, everywhere, all the time, perfect consistently and constantly, and His sovereignty is forever. If you don’t believe me, check out His Word.

So what should you do when your god fails you? I know what I do when my god fails me. I repent. With godly sorrow, with remorse and compunction, I confess my failure to the Lord in worshiping a god other than Him, and I turn from my wicked way. I turn to Him, my Creator, my Redeemer, my Restorer, my Healer, my King, my Lord, my Savior, the love of my life, the God of the universe.

Oh dear God, what would I do without your mercy? You don’t yell and scream at me for messing up yet again. You don’t shake your finger in my face and hate me for making the same mistake yet again. Because of my faith in Jesus, because of His shed blood on the cross, because He is your Son and came to earth and died on the cross for me and the world and rose again, you give me mercy when I come to you in confession. Thank you, dear Lord, for your forgiveness and mercy. I turn to you once more, once again, humbled, deeply, and I ask you this. Please help me to remember you, to realize and respect your sovereignty, and to learn to not turn away, to recognize and realize when I am beginning to make and/or worship a false god again – and to not do it again. And, should I fall once more, as I have so many times before, please help me to get up quickly, and come running to your mercy seat where your love never fails. I love you, my King, my Lord, my Savior. Amen.

Psa 118:8  “It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.”

Heb 13:5  “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”

1Co 13:1  “Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. 
1Co 13:2  And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. 
1Co 13:3  And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. 
1Co 13:4  Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, 
1Co 13:5  Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; 
1Co 13:6  Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; 
1Co 13:7  Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. 
1Co 13:8  Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.”

  1. Has God failed me? Yes, everyday. I don’t believe that I am turning to a false God. I pray to God that He will actually get involved with my life. 40+ years of nothing but silence and disappointment. All this time I have wasted waiting for God, only to be completely ignored. Never had a prayer answered (with yes) ,or no for that matter, as God doesn’t communicate with me. A confirmation from God would be helpful. I pray for purpose, still just silence. I pray for the means to do God’s work, still nothing. I have prayed for a physical change, nothing. I have prayed for what the Bible says God will give without exception, not to me though. I have prayed for release from poverty, never happens. What I am saying is that God hasn’t been here for me in anyway that I need Him to. Why won’t God let me feel His love? Why won’t God speak with me? Why does God ignore me. A little something from God would be greatly helpful to keep the faith. A feeling, a word, a sighting, a comforting hand. Anything. Thanks and may God bless you, in Jesus name, Amen.

    52 , have never had a steady job, unemployed, though always willing to work, I’m generous when I work, nothing seems to help, I trust God & place everything in His care, although am the laughter of family & acquaintances who have no trouble finding employment, while I like an abandoned child toy am left without employment, it materialistic, not money thirsty, I give away most of what I earn, dissolutioned, disappointed to say the least, no vices, no womanizing, no drunken debauchery, just mind my own stay to myself, avoid trouble & still end up alone & without necessities, everything costs in life, place my trust in God & not in man,& for some reason my life was orchestrated as such, prayer helps to accept my cross, but won’t change the outcome of this life orchestrated by “God the Father, via His Divine Providence”, sure I can apply “wishful thinking “? & assume my prayers have the ability to change the direction of God the Father’s orchestrated Divine Providence,only to fool myself. Prayer is designed to help us accept what comes are way, not to change God’s mind in accordance to His Divine Providence for our life ,?
