After a nice time of prayerful reflection, God at work stories, and vision for upcoming church life activities like our Relationship Getaway in Jan, we worshipped the Lord with song and prayer.
During the message, we identified 3 Primary Fears people deal with: rejection, performance, and security/being in control. In studying the life of 2 Sauls we saw:
1. Being Overcome by Fears- King Saul (1 Sam 8-15)
2. Jesus Casts Out Fear- initiating relationship with us (misc. passages)
3. Overcoming Fears- Paul (Philippians 4:4-9)
Through the power and presence of Jesus alone, we can overcome our fears, thus affecting our life direction, its affect on loved ones, and our relationship with God.
What courageous actions of response may God be calling you to take this week?
