Don't Be Afraid To Succeed

By Pastor Jacob Martin

"Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don't get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes." 

Matthew 6:34


Many of us struggle with the fear of failure in seasons of our lives. For some that season is every day. For others, it comes and it goes. It is real and the effects can be paralyzing to the destiny that God has for you as His amazing child.


We have been given an amazing drive to succeed and dream as children of God. I believe that you have amazing dreams and visions that have been planted in your spirit. For many of us, we just don't know where to begin. We have greatness wanting to explode out of us and we just don't know where to start or even how to start. We end up obsessing about these dreams until they consume us with frustration and fear because every where we turn, we only end up confused. We don't believe we have anyone who wants to helps us. We end up blaming everyone around us for the failures and stress we take upon ourselves. We are afraid to invest because investment feels like the lottery when you have no clear direction (the odds are not in our favor).


But, the answer to all this frustration is staring right at us in Matt 6:34. The truth is that we stop trying when we stop looking for what God is doing in the every day moments of our lives. When we stop looking at Him we close our eyes and ears to Heaven. We miss the moments when the Holy Spirit is trying to give us the answers for desires of our hearts. And the good news is that we can repent (change our minds and hearts) right now and displace that fear of failure from our lives.


Let's activate this:


Declare this today:

  1. My eyes and ears are open to see and hear what God is doing.
  2. I'm not afraid of anything that will pop up today or any day.
  3. In every situation I always have divine favor.
  4. I specialize in hard situations.
  5. I was made for the impossible.
