THE MESSAGE

HOW TO LIVE WITHOUT FEAR AND FACE LIFE WITH FAITH AND CONFIDENCE

*************************************************************************************

1. FOCUS YOUR ATTENTION ON GOD NOT ON YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES

*****************************************************************************

In order to live without fear and face life with faith and confidence we must focus our attention on God and not on our circumstances . We must fix our eyes on Jesus who is the author and the finisher of our faith. In the incident in the Bible where Peter walked on water , we find that as long as he was focused on Jesus he was able to walk on the water. But when he focused on the storm and the wind , Peter was filled with fear and began to drown. Even in our life as long as we focus on the Lord and not on our circumstances , we can live without fear and face life confidently. We can triumph over adversity and trials. But if we focus on the circumstances , we will allow fear to dominate us and will not be able to triumph over our adversities.

SCRIPTURE REFERENCES

*******************************

HEBREWS 10:35-39

So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.

You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.

For in just a very little while,"He who is coming will come and will not delay.

But my righteous one will live by faith. And if he shrinks back, I will not be pleased with him."

But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who believe and are saved.

HEBREWS 12:2

Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

MATTHEW 14:22-32

Immediately Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead of him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowd.

After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone,

but the boat was already a considerable distance from land, buffeted by the waves because the wind was against it.

During the fourth watch of the night Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake.

When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. "It’s a ghost," they said, and cried out in fear.

But Jesus immediately said to them: "Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid."

"Lord, if it’s you," Peter replied, "tell me to come to you on the water."

"Come," he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus.
