“Wait for God”
Wait for God. I think that is what we miss most. That’s why we are just turning around unhealthy fears. Fear centers on the question, Will God protect me? If we don’t have regular intimate time with God, this question always remains in our mind.
We are of course busy with our works, with our kids. We look forward to next holiday, and become busy for vacation, leisure, activities, social things. In the midst of those busyness, we are pretty active for ministries, bible study, helping others. We are too busy to wait for God.
Wait for God. Because He is waiting for us to come, like a father who looks forward to spending time with his kids.
For Lifenet groups and personal reflection
1) When was the last time you really get angry? How did you handle it? Can you see where the anger come from?
2) How would you respond? “Getting angry is always wrong.”
3) Read 1 Samuel 13:8-14. What did Saul fear for? What did it cause for his life? How could he have dealt with his fear?
4) How does fear of men (or fear of loosening face) affect our relationship with God, with others and with ourselves?
5) What do you fear most now? Why? How would you deal with it? What help do you need? From whom and when would you receive it?
