It’s okay to fail.
Many successful people failed many times before they succeed. There is no need to be afraid of failure. It is the only pathway to success. What is important is that, after we fail, we stand up and start again.
There are many Biblical stories that tell us how to recover from failures.
To “fail” means to fall short of success or achievement in something expected, attempted, desired or approved – Dictionary.com.
The Bible says, we all fail. As a matter of fact, all fall short in the glory of God because we all sin against Him. “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Rom. 3:23).And we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us if we say that we have no sin. (1 John 1: 8 )
If everyone fails, then we should not be afraid to fail.
Remember the parable of the talents? The man was afraid to fail and did not try at all to use the talent given to him, so he hid his talent on the ground. He expected that his master will forgive him. The fear of failure is the reason many people fail. And this man from the parable really failed because he did not try at all because of fear of failure. (Matt. 25:18, 24-29)
Failures can do two things in us. Either it makes us obey God or continue disobeying Him.
Be it spiritual or material, we must not afraid to fail. We are not afraid to do good things and fail.
Materially, we keep on trying to have a better life. If we use the strength and talent given by God and allow ourselves to give our very best, then success will not be too far away. After all, God is the one who really gives victory. So, why be afraid if we are sure that God is on our side?
Spiritually, we are more eager to show that we are not afraid of anything in this life. We are not afraid to show kindness to one another, as we have experienced God’s kindness in our lives (Ephesians 2:7, so that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.) We are not afraid to offer our help to anyone in need. We can’t be afraid to step out and do the benevolent work God has ordained, kindly giving to those who are in need, especially to those of the household of faith (Gal. 6:10).
God blesses us materially to share with those who have needs (2Co 8:9 For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though He was rich, for your sakes He became poor, in order that you might be made rich through His poverty. ) If we obey God, we’ll store up treasure of a good foundation for the future, so that we may take hold of that which is life indeed (1Ti 6:19 laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.)
