Facing Down Your Fear of Failure with Faith | What Are You Afraid Of? | How to refocus on God in times of uncertainty and crisis

In this series Dr. David Jeremiah shares his heart and explores lessons from fearful people in the Bible. In this course from the book of Joshua, we learn how to replace the fear of failure with the assurance of success so we can find our purpose and make a difference in our world. There is a difference between a venture that is our idea and a venture that is God's idea. With our ideas, the fear of failure is a constant reality since there is no assurance of success.  But when the calling is from God, and He promises success, we have no reason to fear the possibility of failure.
