Not fearing failure

It lurks in our heads.  The fear of failure.  Sometimes it is not even as clear as a fear.  A pessimism about possibilites that tamps down enthusiasm like water on a fire.  Faith is the cure.  Not skin faith, only heart faith will do.  Faith that prays “for Thine is the KINGDOM, and the POWER, and the GLORY with a confident shout!   Faith that looks at the power of God rather than the size of the giant.  Faith that is the “assurance of things hoped for” (Hebrews 11) because it believes that “God is able”( Ephesians 3 ).   On Sunday at FBC we will study John 12.  It is the inspiring story of the Lord yielding His life to the cross with the expectation of MUCH fruit.  He does not expect some fruit.  He expects MUCH.  He does not fear failure–not even the possibility.  Today, as I pray His words, I’m asking Him to give me His fearless heart.
