Overcoming fear- Part 2

By Dave Henning / July 27, 2012

The second eternal perspective on overcoming fear presented by Pastor Mays is based on the very familiar words of Romans 8:28- “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”

Beset by adversity and in the midst of our Land Between desert transition time, our earthy perspective often makes us prone to feelings of loneliness and abandonment.  While we may be certain of our salvation, we experience periods of doubt in God’s ability to work in our lives.  The key, Steve Mays asserts, is to view our circumstances from an eternal perspective and to affirm what we believe rather than how we feel.

What Pastor Mays says about St. Paul is just as applicable to us: “Paul was absolutely confident that everything that happened to him would be used by God to make things happen in him, so great things would begin to happen through him.”
