God doesn't see us as a failure - just a learner.
"Peter answered and said unto him, Though all men shall be offended because of thee, yet will I never be offended."
Just like Peter, we are often more confident of ourselves than God is.
Many Christians are devastated when they fail in some area that they thought they had long since grown past. We need to realize that as long as we are in this mortal body, we cannot fall asleep at our battle station against the evil works of the flesh.
If we do, our flesh is just as capable of sin as anyone else's.
If we fall, it should concern us but not surprise us.
We should simply realize with Paul, that "in my flesh dwells no good thing," get back into the spirit through confession and forgiveness, and go on with Jesus.
The Lord has never had anyone qualified working for Him yet! Look at the list, Adam, Eve, Moses, Joseph, Danial, King David, not any of the other people in history!
Peter wasn't qualified, plus none of the Apostles were and even at our best, neither are we. If we realize that we are nothing and have nothing, then we are prime candidates to be used by God. Look up not back at other humans who have been helpful in our history and thank God for the working of the followers of the Gospel message!
Peter went on to become probably the best known of the twelve apostles.
The Lord used him mightily. But He didn't want any of us, to forget that it was Christ in Peter and not Peter himself who was great.
