face our fears :: Friday E-devotion

(NOTE: I have been under the weather the last few days.  That is why there was not a devotion yesterday and why this one is so short.)
 
One of the greatest questions we have asked during our Chase the Lion series comes is this: what if your greatest success is hiding behind your worst fear?  That can be found in the manifesto and in the book.  Think about it.
 
Fear keeps us tied down and not effective for God.  Fear is Satan's attempt to stop or side track Christians.
 
Has Satan stopped you?  Here are some verses to renew the reason why we don't have let fear drive our lives:
 
Psalm 46:10  --- "Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth."
 
John 14:27 --- I'm leaving you with a gift: peace of mind and heart! And the peace I give isn't fragile like the peace the world gives. So, don't be troubled or afraid.
 
Matthew 6:33-34 --- "But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you. "Therefore do not be anxious for tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."
 
Join us this weekend at The Community, if you are close by.  It is going to be an awesome discovery and maybe even an adventure into our faith shatters fear.  It is time we face our fears.
