Let Us Go To GodTRUSTTo Get All The Help We Need (Heb 4:16).
8 Ways To Use Your Faith To Overcome Your Fears
(A Topical Sermon Outline)
(1) Realize That God Can Do For You What No One Else Can
When you walk by faith, God will go ahead of you and do that which you cannot do for yourself, so that you will be enabled, and excited about doing what He asked you to do.
Understand therefore this day, that the Lord thy God is he which goeth over before thee; as a consuming fire he shall destroy them, and he shall bring them down before thy face: so shalt thou drive them out, and destroy them quickly, as the Lord hath said unto thee (Dt 9:3).
(2) Praying To God In Faith Means Going To Him Quickly, Expectantly, And Boldly About Everything
When you pray to God in faith it means going to Him...
Quickly You must go to God First in all things, and not waste time doubting, or going to a lot of wrong sources for advice.
Expectantly You must believe that God will answer your prayers, and immediately start looking for the answer.
Boldly You must ask for what you really want and need, not 100 other things you don’t want or need!
Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water (Heb 10: 22).
(3) to use your faith you must get past the fear of people and circumstances
Using Faith means pushing past (overcoming) the fear of people and circumstances, in order to do exactly what God told you to do in the first place!
Behold, the Lord thy God hath set the land before thee: go up and possess it, as the Lord God of thy fathers hath said unto thee; fear not, neither be discouraged (Dt 1:21).
(4) Whenever God Ask you to do something Difficult, get started immediately, and don't stop until you are finished
Whenever God tells you to do something you feel is difficult, faithfully get started on it early and don’t quit until you are finished, because in the quick start and constant effort… you will experience God's presence and help... every step of the way.
So, always do these three things when you hear & understand the voice of God through the Bible...
get started quickly
keep at it
and look for Gods help every step of the way.
Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest (Jos 1:9).
(5) take time out to pray and meditate before every great challenge
Take time out to pray & meditate on God's word before you face any great challenge or enemy, and God will give you the victory!
Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the Lord with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; to morrow go out against them: for the Lord will be with you (2Ch 20:17).
(6) faith helps you to learn god's word faster
Realize that Faith helps you to Learn Everything you need to know about God and his will, through Christ.
It gives you the motivation and the urgency to accept & know Gods will in a personal, accurate, and helpful way.
So, Faith helps you to do these 4 important things really fast....
know the difference between God's Word & man's word
accept God's Word for what it is... The Truth!
become sure of what God's Word can do for you & others
and take action on God's Word alone.
For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me (Jn 17:8).
(7) Stop Wasting Time by Doing things The Wrong Way, And Get Serious About Doing everyThing God's Way
When you get Confident & Serious about doing things God's Way, He will Began and Continue to bless you with All that He Promised In His Word.
Doing things otherwise is just a waste of time!
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Heb 11:1).
(8) Know That Faith in god Helps you to learn from & deal with hard times effectively
So, use your faith to understand hard times as correction, and as proof that God loves you. And do everything in your power to learn what He is trying to teach you through this process.
This will require you to...
memorize certain parts of the Bible
be willing to accept correction
gain control over your emotions
but realize its OK to cry sometimes
and yet, not give up!
And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him (Heb 12: 5).
