"God's Promises When You're Afraid of Failing" with Pastor Rick Warren

Published 2019-08-05
The fear of failure is a universal fear–it is often more detrimental than the failure itself. If you never learn how to disarm it, you’ll miss all that God wants to do in your life. In this message in God's Amazing Promises series, Pastor Rick Warren shares four truths to remember and four steps to take so that you can neutralize the fear of failure in your life.

    4 Things To Remember:

    1. Everybody fails in many ways
    2. No failure is final unless I give up
    3. Failure is the path to success if I'm humble & willing to learn from it
    4. That no matter what happens, God promises to use it for good in my life

    4 Actions To Take:
    1. Refuse to compare myself to others
    2. Redefine the meaning of failure
    3. Refocus on God's love for me & others
    4. Replace my fear with faith in Jesus

    Listened to this today as i was facing some fears with my Spouse but this teaching has encouraged us to keep pressing with faith knowing that WE can never please God by playing it SAFE.

    Blessings Pr Rick.

    Love is the opposite of fear. Make love the motivation of everything you do. Wherever God's love is there is no fear, because God's love drives out all fear.
    I needed this! 😭🙌🙏 I have a fear of failure in my studies in college. Please pray for me.

God i trust you with all my heart and please use me to do your will. I am always ready for your calling. From now on I will always face my fears with Gods love for i know He is always with me.
