We cannot allow our fears of failing to keep us from reaching our full potential.
Too often do we allow fear to paralyze us. We sit and wait until we are no longer afraid, when we could have acted long before. God has a plan in place for you, and it may require you to step out of the realm of your comfort zone. You may be uncomfortable. You may be scared. You may not feel that you are ready, but you will be when it’s time.
Fear is nothing. Fear is a mirage. It’s a temporary emotion based on a temporary situation. A tool that the enemy uses to keep us stagnant. Fear is a natural response to the unknown, but you can’t allow fear to control your life.
Often, fear is what comes before change, and change is necessary for growth. Your want for success and happiness must be stronger than your fear of failure.
Your faith must triumph over your fear. God puts us in situations of discomfort for a reason.
2 Timothy 1:7 says that The Lord has not given us a spirit of fear, but a spirit of power and of love, and of a sound mind. Know that in everything you do in His name, you will be prosperous. Failure is a stepping stone on the journey to success. It is not to be feared, but to be learned from. Fear is only a setback if you allow it to be so.
God is greater than your fear of failure.
And that’s the memo.
