Scriptures: Joshua 1:1-9

What are you afraid of? Many are plagued by Atychiphobia. It is the paralyzing, recurring fear of failure. This fear can cripple God’s people from walking by faith instead of by sight. For some this fear silences them from sharing their faith in Christ with coworkers, neighbors or classmates. Satan wants to create crippling fear in you so that you are rendered ineffective as a servant of God.

When we shift our focus to God, we discover that Christ sets us free. Fear of failure can no longer paralyze you. Like Paul we can declare “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.” Paul reminds us “if God is for us who can be against us?”

God’s word reminds us of the Lord’s promises and how he wants to work through us. The key is to keep our focus on Christ, not on the fear of failure if we try to serve Christ.

Do you know Jesus as your Savior? Are you plagued by fear of failing? You don’t have to be. We are assured that we have victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. One word from Jesus calms storms. One word from Jesus heals people. One word from Jesus meets the needs of over 5,000 men plus their families. One word from Jesus will banish the fear of failure from your life.
