DRIVEN BY ETERNAL PURPOSE: John 3:15
Theme: GUARDING YOUR HEART Part 9
Beloved Saints, good morning. Today we look at guarding your heart from failure part 2.
A person who is surrounded by failure sees not far, but instead backwards. He says, “Let us go back, we choose our own backward captain who thinks like us, leading us back into Egypt.”
Numbers 14:4 (KJV)
And they said one to another, Let us make a captain, and let us return into Egypt.
Failure attitude is a non starter.
When failure attitude swallows you, fear sets in and you feel discouraged. You leave and run away from your direct visible life time inheritance.
A failure heart easily gives up. Speaks wrongly saying, “This area is hard, it eats or consumes its own inhabitants. There are giants all around. I cannot be here, this area is not fit for any church at all.”
Failure attitude has swallowed greatest destinies God gave men and women on earth. Many talents and great visions have been destroyed by demons of failure. Nations have failed to develop. But you can do it, yes! God is with you, you will not fail. Go on and take the giants down! Joshua did it! You can do it with God. Stand strong and enter Canaan.
When failure consumes you, you become a grasshopper, and you only see giants that you can’t miss when you shoot the arrow. Remove grasshopper mentality.
Numbers 13:33 (KJV)
And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak:… and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers,… in their sight.
Victory and success however sees giants as bread, cheese cake and muffin, to eat and swallow with a drink. Joshua said;
Numbers 14:9 (KJV)
Only rebel not ye against the Lord , neither fear ye the people of the land; for they are bread for us: their defence is departed from them, and the Lord is with us: fear them not.
Failure attitude denies promotion. “Don’t promote me please, I am not ready for that post yet. But let that one, let her be promoted instead of me, losing all added attachments to the promotion.
Failure drives you into despair. I know of someone who sold his very expensive beautiful car for failing fixing it. He said that no one can fix it. He told the buyer that he failed to fix it and he sold it very cheap. The buyer sought for a mechanical of such car brand. He came and saw that the problem just needed to fix a certain spare part. He ordered it and few weeks later fixed the car! Off he drove away enjoying the comfort!
Failure will cause some men fail to trust their spouses. They fail to train them driving, they fail to trust them with big responsibilities. Everything is done by them, one out. Eish! Such a family will never progress in life at all. One man’s show cannot do all things. Failure to empower your spouse is failure to advance in your own life.
Many students fail Mathematics, because they heard that the subject is very difficult field. They already fail before writing exam. Yet Math is the easiest subject if you know and crystal clear master their laid down universal formulas!
You will not fail, your marriage, your career, your church ministry, your calling, your vision… will not fail. Your gifts will not fail. Rise up and march into your Canaan now. Guard your heart from failure in Jesus’ Name.
Pray: My Almighty Father, victory is mine, I now know that you are with me and failure cannot be associated with me. I am more than ready to march on into my Canaan and get all my inheritance and land on this earth. All my gifts and talents shall come out. I refuse to be a failure. In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen!!!
Tomorrow we look at guarding your heart from the paralysis of being shy.
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.
