I think there are more of us that fear failure more than anything else. Failure is not to be feared, to make us scared, for who we believe in is greater than any fear we can ever imagine. God is concerned more with our realization faith is what diminishes fear… fear can only grow if we have not faith. Should we say we are children of God… then as such an understanding is to be placed firmly in our heart, mind and soul, and we are to know whatever we do on God’s behalf, to teach and instruct the body of Christ (uplift and encourage), is not to be worried over. To begin any project, study or teaching that has to share things of God is what we are to be doing… and there should be no fear to the mission of your heart. Love is the most important concept to invest your time toward… and nothing should ever stop you from this task- even if you fall or fail… get back up and continue on.
If we allow failure to set its conditioning on our mind… we see this as more than we can accept should we fail. Failure is not to be the focal point of any endeavor we set our mind to do for the LORD our God. Do we not believe He is going to be involved in the work itself? Of course He will be… as we are to submit to His will, and then we can gain a proper perspective of the things God would have us do. Understand, though it may be done by our hands it is His work we will do and it will be guided by the Spirit and God Himself is involved in the work being done. This will always be the truth of things done for God… by God and for God’s glory. The worst thing to do is assume it is all us… for we would diminish the glory to be given to God- a time we might think it is attributable to us alone.

Micah 7:8 Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD shall be a light unto me. 9 I will bear the indignation of the LORD, because I have sinned against him, until he plead my cause, and execute judgment for me: he will bring me forth to the light, and I shall behold his righteousness.
Micah 7:18 Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy. 19 He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.
Ephesians 2:1 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; 2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: 3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. 4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, 5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved 😉 6 And hath raised us up together , and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: 7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. 8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast . 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. 11 Wherefore remember , that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; 12 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: 13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. 14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; 15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; 16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby : 17 And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh. 18 For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father. 19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; 20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; 21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: 22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

When we do not start an endeavor for God is when we are held in the hands of fear… the fear of failure. When we are saying we are christian(s)… to mean we are believers in God, we need to realize there should be nothing than stands in our way… for is not Jesus the way itself? The way to succeed stems from our belief in Jesus Christ… the things we do to aid understanding advances the thoughts of God for God. I can think of nothing better for man to do… than think about God, placing an importance to this is the purpose to this writing- especially when it comes to starting something without the fear of failure. There will never be a time in this life we will be successful in everything, perfect, for we are human after all. Isn’t this the very reason we need life in God… and need God in our lives? Without God in our lives we will surely fail life and the lessons Jesus taught… that the gift of belief in Him would set you free from sin itself. I hope you will agree!
