Faith Not Fear: Defeating Discouragement, Part Four
Overcoming fear is essential to defeating our discouragement. Russ sits down with Brian and Nick to discuss how we have to choose God to overcome our discouragement, and by choosing God we chose faith and not fear. What fear are you focused on? The fear of: shaming, hard things, failure, missing out, or change?
Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead,  I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 3:13-14 NIV
The tricky thing about fear is the more afraid we are the more self reliant we become. So if you are looking to yourself for the answers and not to God, take stock of your fear. Once you identify it you have to be specific, finding someone to share those fears with. All of us need to choose to have faith rather than being afraid.
