Do Not Be Afraid

Start with prayer.
Praise God for a new day and pray that you would glorify God with your day.
Confess your sins to God and ask God to help you change.
Ask God to help you focus during this time.
Read John 6:16-21
Where was Jesus when his disciples took the boat out to sea?
Why in the world did they leave without him? Read Matt. 14:22
What did Jesus command lead them into?
This is a good picture of the obedient Christian life.
Think about all the characters in the Bible that God leads into trials.
To be Jesus disciple is to head into trouble.
When trouble comes remember these words “It is I; do not be afraid.”
The storm could not keep Jesus away and neither will our troubles.
End with prayer.
Thank Jesus for being there with you in your troubles. Thank him for the peace that he can provide in the toughest of situations.
Pray that you would be obedient to his commands even if they make life harder.
Pray for the person you know that does not know Jesus.
Pray for the next person or family in the church directory.
