The Bible tells us we need not fear evil. (Psalm 23.) We are also assured that we are not failures but victors in Jesus. (1 John 4:4-5.) But I don’t know that we are ever told not to fear failure. Perhaps because we might end up like this:
So perhaps the important thing is how we get over our fear of failure. Do we do it in our own power – I need to keep facing my fears until I beat them into submission – or do we rest in Jesus’ victory over all matters worth fearing?
I confess I still get caught up in my fears at times. I also confess that I am caught up in Jesus for all time.
What a blessed confession.
