Conquering the Fear of Failing

In times of fear of failing, I always return to the words of the Scriptures from the Holy Bible. This book of God contains not only the words of the Lord but these words are recipes for everyday living as human beings created in the image of the Lord . The wisdom contained in the words and pages of the bible are as true and relevant today as they were on the day that they were written.

In particular my thoughts and reflection go back to the words found in the New Testament scriptures found in the book of Psalms. Psalms was written by the greatest king of Judah, David. David was chosen to come from you to be the ruler over Israel for Me. His origin is from antiquity, from eternity. Therefore, He will abandoned them until the time when men are born again in our Lord Jesus Christ.

In Psalm 37, vs. 1 David writes, “Do not be agitated by evildoers; do not envy those who do wrong. For they wither quickly like the grass and wilt like the tender green plants. Trust in the Lord and do what is good; dwell in the land and live securely. Take delight in the Lord. And He will give you your hearts desires. Refrain from anger and give up your rage; do not be agitated it can only bring harm. For evildoers will be destroyed, but those who put their hope in the Lord will inherit the land.”

In Psalm 73, vs 21 David writes, “when I became embittered and my innermost being was wounded, I was a fool and didn’t understand; I was an unthinking animal towards You. You hold my right hand. You guide me with Your counsel, and afterwards you will take me up to glory. And I desire nothing on earth but You, My flesh and heart may fail but God is the strength of my heart, my portion forever.

It is no coincidence that David wrote these words in the book Psalms years before the birth our Savior the Lord Jesus Christ. This is the beginning of the greatest Story ever told. The savior of mankind entering the world. God in the flesh to be crucified for the sins of mankind. When you are reflecting this concept of conquering your fear, turn your thoughts to the book of Psalms and the writings of King David.
