“Once God Chooses You, He Will Not Allow You To Fail”

This profound statement was uttered by the revered Chairman of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, at the recently-held Pentecost 2024 Conference at Rudolf Weber Arena, Oberhausen, Germany. Apostle Eric Nyamekye made this heart-soothing statement in one of his messages titled “The Church in God’s Plan of Redemption.”

Since its delivery, this powerful assertion has been trending and has helped many understand that “God cannot fail any individual once He chooses him or her.” I, therefore, want to borrow this short but impactful statement I personally took note of during the ministration of our dear chairman, to emphasize and broadly share my thoughts on it as inspired by the Holy Spirit.

Undeniably, when God chooses a person or a vessel, He chooses that individual to fulfill an assignment and mandate that will glorify His name and advance His kingdom. Because there is no failure in our excellent God, no individual can fail in His hands when He truly appoints them. Like clay in the hands of a potter, He continues to shape, fashion, and mould that individual until He uses them to fulfill the purpose for which He chose and called them.

Isaiah 64:8 says, “Yet, O LORD, you are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.” Every potter’s expectation and desire is that the clay in his hands would be transformed into a useful pot.

That notwithstanding, anyone God chooses and appoints is likely to experience some adversities, predicaments, and challenges because of the divine selection and appointment. Almost all the vessels God has chosen, used, and is still using have some traceable story and scar attributed to their call. However, if God chooses an individual, regardless of the difficult circumstances they may go through, He will surely uphold them with His righteous hand, be with them, and lead them to their designated destination (Isaiah 41:10).

Isaiah 43:3 also says, “But now, this is what the LORD says—he who created you, Jacob, he who formed you, Israel: ‘Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.'”

Moreover, before God chooses you, like the prophet Jeremiah, He knows you even when you were in your mother’s womb (Jeremiah 1:5). There is always a prophetic aura over any individual God chooses before its actual manifestation. David said, “Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be” (Psalm 139:16). Indeed, God’s callings and appointments are irrevocable (Romans 11:29).

His plans and promises are Yes and Amen, and are forever settled in heaven according to scripture (2 Corinthians 1:20-21, Psalm 119:89). According to Job, “God can do all things; no purpose of His can be thwarted” (Job 42:2). Numbers 23:19 also says, “God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill? Hallelujah!”

Jesus, the very Son of God, was chosen and called before the foundation of the earth (1 Peter 1:18-20). This means that before the earth was created and formed, Jesus was chosen, appointed, and called. Hallelujah! This is mysterious. Because it was God who chose Christ Jesus, He never failed in His mission and assignment on earth. The purpose for which He came was fulfilled astronomically. He saved the world from its depravity (John 3:17), conquered the devil, restored and reconciled humankind back to God through His death and resurrection. He ascended to heaven and is now seated at the right hand of God (Colossians 2:13-15, John 10:10, Acts 2:22-23).

Israel, which produced the Messiah, never failed because it was God that chose her (Genesis 12:1-3, Isaiah 43:1-3). Hebrews 11:4-39 also gives a picture of some veterans and elders of faith who were called and mightily used by God. Through faith, they fulfilled their purpose and outstandingly touched their world and generation without any failure. Indeed, when God chooses, He will not allow you to fail.

Now, dear reader, whatever field of endeavour you have found yourself in (be it the education sector, health sector, banking sector, sports and entertainment sector, business sector, ministry, etc.), if God is the one who positioned you there, He will not allow you to fail. Just discover and know His will and purpose for your life in that area of service, align with Him, and you will see the impact He will make through you.

The God who chose you is faithful; He will not allow you to fail.
