Real Life with Pastor Steve
August 10, 2018
Fear … is a liar. He will take your breath, stop you in your steps. Fear… is a liar. He will rob your rest, steal your happiness. ~ Lyric by Zach Williams
Unhealthy fear… is a devastating thing. It keeps us from becoming all that God has designed us to be and has called us to be. But unhealthy fear… is powerful. Words spoken to us, or actions done to us, or just a traumatic event we experienced… can create a life that is manipulated by our fears.
And one fear, can lead to another fear… fear of rejection, fear of failure, fear of being alone. And the cycle continues, and gets worse. Until, we understand, that fear… is a liar. Fear is nothing more than False Evidence (or Expectations) Appearing Real. Powerful, yes… but not real. However, to replace that fear, we need a fear-breaker, a chain-breaker… someone more powerful than our greatest fears… someone who has already conquered the greatest fears this world could ever throw at us… and that person is Jesus.
This Sunday, we will be exploring that theme at our annual outdoor service at Torpy Park in Minocqua at 10:00 AM. If you are in town, feel free to join us for some great worship, special music, a short devotional teaching, and a time to trade fear… for joy! We’d love to see you this Sunday at Torpy Park! And that’s… real life. ~ Pastor Steve Rowe – Eaglebrook Church
