Philippians 3:12 ” Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus to hold of me.”

The Apostle Paul readily admits here that he’s not yet arrived at perfection in his spiritual life.   So how come we think as soon as we become a Christian we’re  a mature Believer that can’t fail?  I Timothy 6:12 tells us to, “Fight the good fight of faith.”   The journey of our Christian walk is going to be a struggle…it’s going to be a battle between good and evil,  with us sometimes coming out of the skirmish bruised and battered.  But we need to get back up and not allow failures to define who we are in God.  Failures simply mean we’re still trying…and still fighting the good fight of faith.
