Do Not Fear

Welcome!

Praise the Lord you are here.  It is good to seek Jesus — our Savior.

Our Focus today is — Fear.

God tells us many times over – to have no fear.  We can be thankful for His love and guidance to trust in Him.

When I get really afraid I come to you in trust.” (Psalm 56:3)

Fear is a powerful, unreasonable emotion.  It influences how you think and react, and it even affects your physical well-being.  Fear will stop you from reaching your full potential or from allowing your loved ones to be all they can be. 

You know God is directing you in a certain way but you refuse to step out in faith because of your apprehensions.

Understand that your fear is based on an expectation of punishment — you believe it’s inevitable that only bad things will happen. 

Instead, you must focus on God’s character.  God is all-powerful, all knowing, and completely loving. 

So, obey Him — He’ll only lead you in what’s best for you. 

With God, you never have to be afraid.

“In God, whose word I praise, in God I have put my trust; I shall not be afraid.  What can mere man do to me?” (Psalm 56:4)

With bowed head pray:

Lord, fear is a powerful influence in my life.  Help me to obey you in faith and trust you in and out of the storms of my life.

Amen.
