DRIVEN BY ETERNAL PURPOSE: John 3:15
Theme: GUARDING YOUR HEART Part 8
Beloved Saints, good morning. Today we look at guarding your heart from failure.
Pessimism is a negative attitude that includes self undervalue, defeatism, grasshopper mentality of Israel in the desert, procrastination and feeling of being unworthy.
Failure attitude is a serious set back of any scientific inventions. Most poor nations are not scientific because they fear failure. Yes, very rich nations are mostly scientific and keep on inventing and discovering things. There is no discovery that was made perfect. But when they failed they tried again and again till they got it. Become one by zeroing failure out in your scientific mind.
I remember the Wright Brothers had an accident in trying to test the flying engine and one of the two broke his leg. But while in POP went again for another test flight. Would you do that?
Failure and fear would tell you don’t kill yourself for nothing. It can’t work! Period!
The attitude of failure has crashed a lot of people from any personal or national development. You go overseas, you see historical artifacts in all sorts of places. You look at things that attract most tourists, visitors which you can easily make or arrange in your nation but failure makes you unable to organise and invent that in your home country. Many leaders with failure attitude cannot manage to prosper their nation. Dress the attitude of “We can do it!” God is never a respecter of persons.
Failures cannot dream in color but black and white. A failure cannot develop, creative, inventive or growth but end up in stealing or corruption. Corruption is a sign of failure at its best in an individual.
Having a vision, mission and setting goals is only done by those people who have no failure spirit among them. Self driven people have always something to do from their vision and dreams. What do you see in you? Failure or breakthrough?
Joshua and Caleb always saw Canaan in their vision while the other ten spies saw failure from entering.
What you think is what God shall give you. When you think failure, a failed person you will be.
Proverbs 23:7 (KJV)
For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he….:
What you don’t see God will not make you see by force. What you don’t believe in God will never believe it for you. What you cannot fight for God would never waste time fighting for you. Fear brings failure and failure attitude bring fear. That is why in the desert, the Israelis called themselves grasshoppers and never managed to take the land. Failure and fear!
Failure attitude makes your challenges greater that God and God abandons you. Failure attitude is retrogressive but self driven courageous and boldness would bring success at the end. God will always lift you high.
You are not a failure. You will take the land and nothing shall fail you. God is beside you and in you to fight, but only with your boldness and courage. Go on and go again and again till you breakthrough. Cease the opportunity now. Preach and make disciples. You are not to fail God.
Pray: My Almighty Father, let me see you as my Success and not my failure, my Victory and not my defeat, my Breakthrough and not my block. I drive out failure in me and I will go and do what you send me to do. In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen!!!
May God bless your day as you live guarding your heart, from failure while seeking and saving the lost souls in love.
Always Love and Prayers,
Archbishop Dr Mark Kambalazaza.
