FREEDOM FROM THE FEAR OF FAILURE

I was just thinking about something I heard Andrew Womack say on TV the other day.  His ministry board came to him and said the ministry was bankrupt.  It would have been so easy to feel like a total and complete failure.  I am pretty sure I would have felt like a total and complete failure! Most of us would.

It would have been so easy for Andrew to question himself and question God.  To my surprise, Andrew said that he thought maybe it would be nice for a change to just be a normal church goer and have a normal family life.

What further surprised me, was Andrew felt that instead of God saying, “You failed!”,  God was saying, “You know son you probably could have done this or that a little better or different; but I am so proud of you for just trying!”  Wow, when I heard that, I was totally set free from the fear of failure!

When we do our best and try, God is proud of us…even if in the natural it looks like we failed!  After all, what does it matter what others think about us when the Almighty God is proud of us? Liberating, isn’t it!

What is it that you feel God has been asking  you to do?  What is it that  you are afraid to step out and do because of the fear of failure?

God’s word for you today is:

  • “I will be proud of you just for trying to step out and do what I’ve asked you to do! 
  •  If you fall I will pick you up!

Prov 24:16 AMP

16 For a righteous man falls seven times and rises again, but the wicked are overthrown by calamity.

  •  You’ve got more to gain than to lose!
  •  I’m on your side!  If I Am for you, who can be against you The answer is nobody!

Rom 8:31-32 NIV

If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all-how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?

  •  Greater Am I Who is in you, than he (satan) who is in the world!

1 John 4:4 NIV

4 You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the One Who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.

 

  •   You can do anything God asks you to do because He gives you the ability to do what He is asking you to do!

Phil 4:13 AMP

13 I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency].

I could go on and on with scripture after scripture, but I feel I’ve given you enough to know with God ALL things are possible and all God is asking you to do is to try!  You are not reading this blog by accident.  This message is from God to you!  Be free to be all that you can be in the Name of God the Father, Christ Jesus His Son and the Holy Spirit!

Zech 4:6 NIV

6 So he said to me, “This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the LORD Almighty.
