DAY 11- COMMANDING THE MONTH OF NOVEMBER TOPIC: OVERCOMING YOUR FEARS (11)
TOPIC: OVERCOMING YOUR FEARS (2)
READ: 2 Kings 5:1-27
TEXT: ‘’They will have no fear of bad news; their hearts are steadfast.’’ (Psalm 112:7 NIV)
Let’s take a look at some of our most common fears and how we can overcome them.
Fear of failure. This is the most common fear of all, and it keeps us from fulfilling any vision God may give us. If you look closely at the actual consequences of failure, chances are you’ll laugh at the power it wields. Not only are your mistakes survivable, but they’re also teaching tools that sharpen and make you a better person. So what if you make a mistake during your presentation? Nobody’s going to shoot you, right? So what if you miss the mark on the project, or make a mistake in your calculations? We all want to be perfect, but the fact is we’re all flawed. In reality, your irrational fear of failure and your refusal to embrace mistakes create far more errors in the long run. When people refuse to accept the possibility of making a mistake, often they’re reluctant to have someone else check their work or review the project they’re working on. Consequently, they end up making more poor choices and mistakes, which in turn feeds their existing insecurities.
The path to success is through multiple failures. Failing doesn’t make you a failure, quitting does; not learning from it does; refusing to get back up when you fall does. The psalmist says, ‘They will have no fear of bad news; their hearts are steadfast, trusting in the Lord’ (Psalm 112:7 NIV). Using the gifts God has given you, step out and take a risk based on faith, trusting him for success. If you do, ‘You will have good success’ (Joshua 1:8 NKJV).
thank you, God, for the new spirit of boldness you have given to me.
I am not a failure, in Jesus name.
Every arrow of failure fired into my life, backfire to the sender, in Jesus name.
I trust in God for my success in life, in Jesus name.
my new name is a success, in Jesus name.
