Discussion

Obstacles are meant to be moved. Obstacles are the no’s in front of you! Obstacles are meant to stop you from filling your purpose!

     Q1 - What obstacles do you currently face that you feel you just can’t get around?

     Q2 - What can we use to build our faith? Name 3 things.

 

Fear is your # 1 obstacle!

2 Timothy 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.

Fear is a spirit! It will speak intimidating words, unpleasant words, and make you anticipate misfortune. Fear will give you a sick mind.

     Q3 - What kind of mindset has God has given you?

 

Three reasons/ways fear is such an obstacle:

1. Fear destroys our faith.

Mark 11:23 I tell you the truth, you can say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen. But you must really believe it will happen and have no doubt in your heart.

2. You must believe you can, so speak what you want and remove the doubt from your heart.

     Q4 - How does fear destroy our faith?

3. Fear convinces you that you can’t do it! It magnifies the problem and binds the solution. Faith says we can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Fear will cause you to forfeit the future!

     Q5 - What cures fear?

     Q6 - What are some of the fears you hear in your mind that stop you from moving forward?

We conquer fear by doing what the opposite of what fear is telling us to do! Move towards your fear and it will get smaller! Take David, he ran out to meet the Giant!

I Samuel 17:48 As Goliath moved closer to attack, David quickly ran out to meet him.

     Q7 - What will happen if you run from my fears?

Visualize Success

1 Samuel 17:46  Today the Lord will conquer you, and I will kill you and cut off your head. And then I will give the dead bodies of your men to the birds and wild animals, and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel!

     Q8 - When should you start seeing your success?

Do a disaster report (what’s the worst that can happen)!

     Q9 - What are some things you can declare on your future?

Declare the faith not your fear!
