For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we should walk in them.
Ephesians 2:10 nasb
As believers in Christ, we can be confident that if we are obedient to Him, He will work all things together for our good. So why are followers of Christ often confronted with a crippling fear of failure? It could be that we struggle with self-doubt, fearing that we’re not capable, or that our goals are too lofty. But if God has called us to do something, it is with a purpose—if He is entrusting us with an objective, He will provide everything we need to accomplish it.
But what happens when we know that our goal is in God’s will, but even with our best effort, we fail to achieve it? Could it be that our failure is what He had in mind for us all along and what we see as failure is actually God’s triumph?
Fear of Failure challenges believers to step boldly in faith along the path God has set before us, reminding us that His definition of success is often diametrically opposed to that of the world. If we belong to Christ, we have a unique potential that is revealed only after we recognize what that potential is and the value of it.
