Fear of Failure 


When we draw close to God, choosing to shed fear and self-doubt, we can develop our potential and succeed at being all God intended us to be. We can’t, however, develop our potential if we fear failure. We’ll be so afraid of failing or making mistakes that it will prevent us from stepping out. When we’re insecure, we tend to stay with what’s safe and familiar, rather than taking a chance on moving out of our comfort zone and perhaps failing. The important thing to remember is that while we may feel we’re not ready for something new or challenging, God is always ready, and He will equip us with what we need at the precise time we need it. We need to ask God to help us always be willing to step out in faith, rather than playing it safe.
