Be Still & Fear Not

by Chris Russell

HopeFULL week one message from Pastor Chris Russell on December 3, 2018 at Community Church of Waterford, Goshen, Indiana. Our Deepest Fears 1. Failure 5. Losing a loved one 2. Death 6. Physical Pain 3. Rejection 7. The Unknown 4. Loneliness 8. Losing Control 2 Timothy 1:7 Fear is not from God… fear is from our spiritual enemy. God, the source of all, the all-knowing, ever-present, all-powerful God has not given us fear! And yet, so many of us are consumed with it. We are always worried, always anxious, always overwhelmed, living paralyzed by something that God did not give us. For God has not given us a spirit of fear but of power and of love and of a sound mind. Here’s a key thought for us when we focus on the topic of fear… Fear is being consumed with the “what if” questions Exodus 4:1 Your “What if’s” reveal… 1. What you value the most 2. Where you trust God the least Psalm 56:2-4 Psalm 34:4 Psalm 46:1-3 Mark 4:39 Psalm 46:10 But we have these words of “Be still and know that I am God” as a reminder that in the midst of the storm we have one with us who is greater than the storm. In the midst of our fears we have one who is greater than those fears. In the midst of temporary circumstances, we have one who reminds us to focus on Him and his eternal plan for our lives, which is full of joy, full of love, full of promise, and full of hope. He is with us and He will never forsake us. Romans 8:28,35,37-39
