I prayed to the Lord, and he answered me. He freed me from all my fears. Ps 34:4 NLT
8 Don’t let anyone capture you with empty philosophies and high-sounding nonsense that come from human thinking and from the spiritual powers of this world, rather than from Christ. 9 For in Christ lives all the fullness of God in a human body. 10 So you also are complete through your union with Christ, who is the head over every ruler and authority. Col 2:8-10

Winning Over Fear of Failure
1) Realize failing is just a learning time in life.
Indeed, we all make many mistakes… James 3:2
The godly may trip seven times, but they will get up again. But one disaster is enough to overthrow the wicked. Prov 24:16
Wicked: Those who are away from God.
2) God uses failure to make you better.
28 And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. 29 For God knew his people in advance, and he chose them to become like his Son, so that his Son would be the firstbornamong many brothers and sisters. Rom 8:28-29
Learning Experience… Humility, patience, dependence
Skill development, Talent Discovery
I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful. 8 And now the prize awaits me—the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give me on the day of his return. And the prize is not just for me but for all who eagerly look forward to his appearing. 2 Tim 4:7-8
3) Don’t compare yourself with others. (Does not mean you do not learn from others)
Pay careful attention to your own work, for then you will get the satisfaction of a job well done, and you won’t need to compare yourself to anyone else. Gal 6:4
4) Replace fear with faith.
For I can do everything through Christ,who gives me strength. Phil 4:13
Do Not take this Scripture out of context.
4 Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again—rejoice! 5 Let everyone see that you are considerate in all you do. Remember, the Lord is coming soon.
6 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. Phil 4:4-7
Remember the definition of wicked ….
It is about God’s will not my will
