Bible verses about "failure" | Lamsa

Matthew 6:24

24 No man can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one, and like the other; or he will honor one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon (wealth).

John 14:1-31

1 LET not your heart be troubled; believe in God, and believe in me also. 2 In my FatherÆs house there are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and take you to me, so that where I am, you may be also. 4 You know where I am going, and you know the way. 5 Thomas said to him, Our Lord, we do not know where you are going, and how can we know the way? 6 Jesus said to him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no man comes to my Father except by me. 7 If you had known me, you would have known my Father also; from henceforth you know him and you have seen him. 8 Philip said to him, Our Lord, show us the Father, and that is enough for us. 9 Jesus said to him, All this time I have been with you, and yet you do not know me, Philip? he who sees me, has seen the Father; and how do you say, Show us the Father? 10 Do you not believe that I am with my Father and my Father is with me? * the words that I speak, I do not speak of myself; but my Father who abides with me, he does these works. 11 Believe that I am with my Father, and my Father is with me; and if not, believe because of the works. 12 Truly, truly, I say to you, He who believes in me, the works which I do he shall do also; even greater than these things he shall do, because I am going to my Father. 13 And whatever you ask in my name, I will do it for you, so that the Father may be glorified through his Son. 14 If you ask me in my own name, I will do it. 15 If you love me, then obey my commandments. 16 And I will ask of my Father, and he will give you another Comforter, to be with you for ever; 17 Even the Spirit of the truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it has not seen him, and does not know him; but you know him because he abides with you, and is in you. 18 I will not leave you orphans, for I will come to you after a little while. 19 And the world will not see me, but you will see me; because I live, you also shall live. 20 In that day you will know that I am with my Father, and you are with me, and I am with you. 21 He who has my commandments with him and obeys them, he is the one who loves me; he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him, and reveal myself to him. 22 Judas (not of Iscariot) said to him, My Lord, why is it that you will reveal yourself to us, and not to the world? 23 Jesus answered and said to him, He who loves me, keeps my word; and my Father will love him, and we will come to him, and make a place of abode with him. 24 But he who does not love me, does not keep my word; and this word which you hear, is not mine own, but the FatherÆs who sent me. 25 I have spoken these things to you, while I am with you. 26 But the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, whom my Father will send in my name, he will teach you everything, and remind you of everything which I tell you. 27 Peace I leave with you; my own peace I give you; not as the world gives, I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, and do not be afraid. 28 You heard that I told you, I am going away, and I will come to you. If you loved me, you would rejoice because I am going to my Father; for my Father is greater than I. 29 And now behold, I have told you before it happens, so that when it does happen, you may believe. 30 Hereafter I will not talk much with you; for the prince of this world comes; and yet he has nothing against me. 31 But that the world may know that I love my Father, and as my Father has commanded me, so I do. Arise, let us go away from here.

4 Rejoice in our LORD alway; and again I say, Rejoice. 5 Let your humility be known to all men. Our LORD is at hand. 6 Do not worry over things; but always by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Jesus Christ.

Romans 5:3-5

3 And not only so, but we also glory in our tribulations: knowing that tribulation perfects patience in us; 4 And patience, experience; and experience, hope: 5 And hope causes no one to be ashamed; because the love of God is poured in our hearts by the Holy Spirit which is given to us.

2 Corinthians 12:9-10

9 And he said to me, My grace is sufficient for you: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore I would rather boast in my infirmities that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 10 Therefore I am content with infirmities, insults, hardships, persecutions, and imprisonments for ChristÆs sake: for when I am physically weak, then I am mentally strong.
