“And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:32
TRUTH > FEAR > SHALOM PEACE (GOAL):
Breaking free from the grip of fear:
1) Name Your Fear: Unexpected bad news, relational breakdowns, financial problems, moral failures, impending mortality, etc.
2) Understand Fear’s Origin: Describe the first time you can recall experiencing your fear. Can you identify the source?
3) Expose Fear’s Lies: What are the lies that fuel this fear?
4) Face Fear Head-On: What is a baby step you will take to face fear?
5) Speak Words of Truth: Self-Talk, Scripture, prayer.
