WHAT’S STOPPING YOU? FEAR OF SUCCESS! (2)
Fear of success is characterised by these six behaviors; see if you have any of them:
3) Focusing on those who reject you rather than those who accept you.
4) Allowing yourself to be side-tracked by so many insignificant things that you never get focused on the main thing.
5) Talking about what you plan to do ‘someday’.
6) Feeling others are worthy of success but not you.
Question: Are you serving the Lord?
Then you qualify for success! ‘…Let the Lord be magnified, who has pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.’ Yes, God will help you when you are in need. But He also wants you to succeed so that you can begin to meet the needs of others. God told Abraham two things.
First, God promised to bless Abraham greatly. Second, He promised to make Abraham a great blessing to others (Genesis 12:2). And it happened! Solomon writes, ‘…money answers everything’ (Ecclesiastes 10:19 NKJV).
What did he mean?
Money builds schools, churches, and hospitals. It eradicates poverty and illiteracy. It finances research that cures life-threatening illnesses. But some of us are so focused on heaven’s streets of gold that we no longer see earth’s streets filled with suffering and unmet needs.
Understand this: God will reward you based on your service to others. ‘…the King will answer and say to them, “Assuredly, I say to you, in as much as you did it to one of the least of these…you did it to Me’” (Matthew 25:40 NKJV). That should be your greatest motivation for wanting to succeed.
‘…Let the Lord be magnified, who has pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.’
Psalms 35:27 NKJV
