Psalm 27: What are You Afraid Of?

Psychologists tell us that we are born with only two fears: loud noises and the fear of falling.


Life Lesson 1: Fear or Trust?

My greatest fear can be God's greatest opportunity!

See what David did in 1 Sam.17

Let God be the "who"; he can show us the "how".

"This isn't about me and my fear, but there is something bigger at stake here."

Life Lesson 2: If I have to have control, I will always be fearful

Just because I am no longer in control does not mean that God is no longer in control!

See God's promise in Romans 8:34-39

Life Lesson 3: The answer to fear is to build my confidence in God!

A mistake we often make is we focus on the things that we fear. While that might seem like a good idea, it just doesn't work.

Instead, if I focus on God's love and care for me-like David did-I can find victory over fear!

"One thing I ask of the Lord,
this is what I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life,
to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord
and to seek him in his temple." 27:4

It's not that life isn't scary, difficult or stressful-but it is that God's love and care are greater.
