Bible Verses about...why Christians fail

The following bible verses about why Christians fail will help you bounce back into prosperity if you think you’re failing. They’re bible verses against failure and disappointment.

Hosea 4:6

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.”


Most Christians have rejected Knowledge of God’s Word.

Joshua 1:8

This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.”


Most Christians don’t meditate on God’s Word day and night.

Ephesians 6:18

praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints


Most don’t pray at all times and with all prayer, perseverance and supplication in the Spirit for the brethren.

Galatians 5:16-26

I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.”


Most don’t walk in the Spirit.

Hebrews 5:11-14

About this we have much to say, and it is hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing. 12 For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the basic principles of the oracles of God. You need milk, not solid food, 13 for everyone who lives on milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, since he is a child. 14 But solid food is for the mature, for those who have their powers of discernment trained by constant practice to distinguish good from evil.


Most remain babies in Christianity; such are spiritual immature.

Galatians 4:1

Now I say that the heir, as long as he is a child, does not differ at all from a slave, though he is master of all”


Baby Christians are slaves to the world.

1 Peter 2:2

Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation”.


Move on to maturity. Don’t remain a spiritual baby.

John 16:23

And in that day you will ask Me nothing. Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you.”


Most don’t know what it means to ask in the Name of Jesus. The Name of Jesus simply means the nature and character of Jesus. The nature and character of the Lord is yours to use for and in all things; it’s our right to use anytime anywhere. Ask and receive all things in the nature and character of Jesus, in your words and deeds.

Hebrews 11:3

By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.”


Most Christians don’t prophesy. See, God created all things with His Word. And we were created in His image and likeness. Meaning, Christians can and do create their future with their words too. What you say is what you get. You’re what you said.

Note: the gift of prophecy (for all Christians) and the prophetic office (for some) are two different gifts.

2 Corinthians 5:17-19

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.”


Most have abandoned their ministry, they don’t reconcile unbelievers to God. Some Christians today don’t preach the Gospel; they’ve left the work for only those in the five ministry gifts (pastors, teachers, evangelist, prophets, and apostles) to do. Yet, they’re the new creation in Christ, given the ministry of reconciliation. Christians are the ministers of reconciliation.

Ephesians 4:1–3

I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering (patience), bearing with one another in love, endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.


Most Christians are impatient. They don’t walk worthy of the calling with which they were called with longsuffering (patience).

The principle of time operates here on the earth. In God’s realm, everything is now; no yesterday, no tomorrow, no today there. God is not under time. Meaning, Christians are not under time.

But time works here. It takes time (seconds, maybe) for you to stretch your hand for the cup of coffee, right?

Understand that faith is now. And time exist here.

So, be patient. For it took some time for the tree Jesus cursed to die on this earth when it died the very moment he cursed it in God’s realm (Mark 11:20).

2 Timothy 2:15

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.


Most pastors, teachers, evangelist, prophets, and apostles – for example – are immatured Christians; they don’t rightly divide the word of truth. Confusing the brethren here and there.

A pastor once said, “God can choose to heal a Christian and He can choose not to”.

That’s a big lie from the pits of hell; it’s unscriptural.

Healing is the children’s bread. Christians were healed by the stripes of the Lord Jesus Christ. Healing is a baby Christian’s right. The matured Christians don’t fall sick.

See, you’ve got to learn. Study and meditate on the living Word today.

Also, Know who you are and what you have

The two bible verses below will help you.

1 John 4:17

Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as He is, so are we in this world.”


Romans 8:16-17

The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.”

Bible verses about why Christians fail

The causes of failure in bible verses.

Failure as a Christian is your making, not God. God lives in you to help and teach you (John 14:26). You’re the doer, not Him. He causes you both to will and to do of His pleasure (Philippians 2:13). To overcome failure biblically, He’s your helper.

To me, Christians don’t fail.

You’re blessed.
