What Are God’s Promises to You For Overcoming Fear?

Yesterday I shared with you one action to take to overcome your fears: walking in faith. Today I will share with you the second step to overcoming your fears:

Standing on God’s promises.

There are many places in the Bible that emphasize God’s promises to those who follow him. I will look at three:


-Deuteronomy 31:6

“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you” (NIV).

In the midst of your trial, pain, or your extreme discomfort in moving in the direction of your God-given dreams, always know that God “will never leave you nor forsake you.” Therefore we have no reason to “be afraid or terrified.” Because God is always with us, we can, with confidence, “be strong and courageous.”

– Hebrews 13:5-6Image result for hebrews 13:5-6

“God has said, ‘Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.’ So we can say with confidence, ‘The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?” (NIV).

Because God will never leave us or forsake us “we can say with confidence, ‘The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?” That is a reassuring place to be. If God is for us, who can be against us? Bust through that fear because you have the greatest power to ever exist in your corner.


– John 14:2-3

“In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am” (NIV).

 

In Hebrew culture often times a young man would propose to a lady by preparing a room at his father’s house. This is where they would take their bride, assuming she accepted the proposal, to live with him when they get married. In reality, Jesus is proposing to us in this passage. “In my Father’s house are many rooms… I am going there to prepare a place for you…I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.”


Jesus loves us so much he would rather die than live without us. If you have accepted his proposal, you can definitely walk in confidence with a groom like that.

Abnormal, Unbalanced, and Out of Step

Abnormal, Unbalanced, and Out of Step:  The Art and Science of Embracing Yourself.

“Everybody is a genius.  But if you judge a fish on how well it can climb a tree, it will live it’s whole life believing it is stupid.”      – Albert EinsteinEnergize prioritize communicate decision make.jpg

I believe that when people understand their personality style, they better understand how they energize, prioritize, communicate, and decision-make.

Many live under the myth of living a “balanced life.”  In contrast to that, I like to encourage people to live an intensely focused life.

You can’t do both.

People who live a balanced life may have a comfortable job, nice families and a secure retirement.  But people who are intensely focused…. they…..

Follow Your God-Given Dreams

Helen Keller was once asked if there was anything she could think of that was worse than being blind.helen keller.png
John Maxwell defines vision as “a picture of the future that stirs up passion within you.” Do you have vision? Do you have a picture of your future that stirs up a passion within you? The best way to predict the future is to create it.

futureWhat do you believe God’s dream or vision for you may be? Through prayer, reflection, feedback from those who know you best, Bible reading, you can discover your passion. God created you for a reason, for a purpose, for a dream. God has a dream he wants to accomplish through you.

Are you up for the challenge? It will not be easy. It will not always be smooth, but it is where you will live your life to the fullest extent. If you want to climb to your God-given potential, you must discover what God’s dream is for you and then pursue it.

Bruce Wilkinson says, “If you do not follow your God-given dream something significantly important will not happen.”

Several years ago the Statler Brothers had a song called “The Class of ‘57” Some of the lyrics went like this:

class 1957Tommy’s selling used cars, Nancy’s fixing hair
Harvey runs a grocery store and Margaret doesn’t care
Jerry drives a truck for Sears and Charlotte’s on the make
And Paul sells life insurance and part-time real estate.

And the class of ’57 had its dreams
Oh, we all thought we’d change the world with our great works and deeds
Or maybe we just thought the world would change to fit our needs
The class of ’57 had its dreams.

Betty runs a trailer park, Jan sells Tupperware
Randy’s in an insane ward and Mary’s on welfare
Charlie took a job with Ford and Joe took Freddie’s wife
Charlotte took a millionaire and Freddie took his life.

And the class of ’57 had its dreams
But living life day to day is never like it seems
Things get complicated when you get past eighteen
But the class of ’57 had its dreams
Oh, the class of ’57 had its dreams.

dreams lostMost of the time we do not need to discover our dreams. We typically know what they are, we have just buried them somewhere inside our mind and soul where we do not see them anymore.

Pull them out! Re-discover why God put you on this planet. Do not let the realities of life steal your God-given dreams.

What are some of your God-given dreams?
