Intro

My shyness and overcoming it

Scripture

Psalm 27:1–4 ESV
The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? When evildoers assail me to eat up my flesh, my adversaries and foes, it is they who stumble and fall. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war arise against me, yet I will be confident. One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple.

A Proper Perspective of God

Theology is important
Knowing God is more than head knowledge
A desire to dwell in the house of the Lord is not born from head knowledge
Do you know the Spirit of God
Peter’s answer that Jesus was the Christ, the Son of God was not given to him from the world but from the Father in heaven

David’s Situation

Anointed king as a child
Played the harp in King Saul’s court
Killed Goliath
Saul tried to kill him
David would not cause harm to Saul

What Shall My Heart Fear?

A separation in the UMC?
The UMC did not save me or call me to ministry
I am grateful for the UMC, but the UMC is not my salvation
What people think about you?
What can they really do to you?
Everyone wants to be liked, but people are not my salvation
Matthew 10:28 “And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.”
Matters of life?
Sickness, money, jobs, the list goes on and on
We don’t throw our hands up and do nothing, but we can walk through it with peace

What More Is There?

God the creator of heaven and earth
God is the one our hearts seek after
God of Peace
God of Hope
God of Salvation
God of Healing
God of Armies
Our Heavenly Father
