Message for January 10, 2019 from Pastor Shirley


      I have heard it said that there are three hundred and sixty five references to fear in the Bible.  It is not

a matter that you will never have an opportunity to fear but learning how to overcome in the face of fear.

      Over the years I have come up with a lot of excuses of why I could not be obedient with whatever God may have been asking of me.  Then I realised that my excuses was only the voice of fear. Fear can disguise itself in many ways. Fear can lead us to hide, to run away, or to freeze in our shoes.

      We know from the Scripture that fear is a spirit and not from God.  “For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”  2 Timothy 1:7  

      We overcome fear with the spirit of power……

      We overcome fear with spirit of love……

      We overcome fear with a sound mind……

     It is not a matter of having enough faith to overcome fear.  You already have enough faith to move mountains. It is not a matter of waiting until all your feelings of fear is gone to believe.  We will have many, many opportunities in life to fear. It is a matter of trusting God. As you go believing that God is with you fear will flee. Yes fear is a liar. Fear tries to get you to doubt what God has said and is saying.

      I want to encourage you today to step out even if means “doing it afraid.”
