Overcoming the Fear of Lack

Overcoming the Fear of Lack


Restoring your confidence in God’s provision



Beginning with this episode, we are starting a series on overcoming entrepreneurial fear.


The parable of the talents will be our template for this teaching series.


Three entrepreneurial fears are expressed and acted upon by the wicked servant in the parable of the talents: The fear of lack. The fear of risk, and the fear of failure. 


In the next three episodes, we will teach you how to overcome these three fears.


There is no room for fear in the Kingdom Expander’s life, so today, we address how to overcome the entrepreneurial fear of lack.



In This Episode You Will:


-Learn how a scarcity mindset can short-circuit the efficiency of your testimony with unbelievers.


-Learn what made the Lord call the servant who buried his talent a ‘wicked and lazy servant.’


-Understand the danger of over-spiritualizing the parable of the talents.


-Be taught why over-frugality can really harm you, the Kingdom, and lead you down a dangerous path.
