Competing Fears

Kingdom Power - Matthew


Fear is something we all deal with, and it impacts our lives in both healthy and unhealthy ways. A healthy example of fear is when you encounter a grizzly bear while hiking, whereas an unhealthy example of fear is worrying about the future. We all feel fear in different ways and towards different things. Within us there are many fears competing for our attention. So what are you afraid of?

In the passage today, Jesus talks about a few many fears that we all have, but He says that the only one we should fear is God. Today’s message is focused on discussing how we can live in a way that prioritizes the fear of God over every other fear that tries to compete for our attention and control our lives.

Questions for Reflection:

  • Which of the 3 main fears that Jesus talks about do you struggle with the most: people, death, or circumstances? How has it been showing up in your life?
  • Would you say you have a healthy fear of God? What area(s) in your life need to grow in the fear of God?
  • Who are the people in your life that you need to share God’s truth and presence with?
