Are you growing as a disciple of Jesus?

  • If so, how is your faith becoming bigger?
  • If not, what fears are stealing your faith?

We ought to be getting bolder in living our faith!

Our vision of the future becomes our experience in the present.

Faith declares “Fear is not my future—God is!”

“Moses answered the people, ‘Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will
see the deliverance the LORD will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will
never see again. The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.’”

Exodus 14:13-14

• Fear says “There’s no way!” Faith says, “But God….”

“When the servant of the man of God got up and went out early the
next morning, an army of horses and chariots surrounded the city. ‘Oh no my Lord, what
shall we do?’ the servant asked. 16 ‘Don’t be afraid,’ the prophet answered, ‘Those who
are with us are more than those who are with them.’”

2 Kings 6:8-23; 15

• Saved people know they’re safe, surrounded by love!

“Then King Nebuchadnezzar leaped to his feet in amazement and asked
his advisers, ‘Weren’t there three men that we tied up and threw into the fire?’ They
replied, ‘Certainly, Your Majesty.’ 25 He said, ‘Look! I see four men walking around in
the fire, unbound and unharmed, and the fourth looks like a son of the gods.’

Daniel 3:24

Life without a faithful vision of God:
• Past Present Future
• Fear Anxiety Failure

Life with a faithful vision of God:
• Past Present Future
• Grace Boldness Hope

Fear is NOT your future—God is!

Your vision of God determines your boldness in life.

• Big God, small fears.
• Big fears, small god.

Fear has been our master far too long in this short life!
• Shift your focus—make Jesus the brilliant center of a bold life!
• Commit to a life of GROWING in Christ!
• Face your fears and walk through them with a huge vision of God the infinite
guiding the way.
