Abraham – Holding Fast To The Will Of God

Lesson 6: "A Bout With Fear" Genesis 14:1-15:6

"Do not be afraid, Abram…" Genesis 15:1

What changed?

From courage to fear

God's reassuring words

Overcoming fear

3 Principles

#1) It is normal to face periods of doubt and fear following great victories in our Christian lives. Why? Lessons in grace, need for physical rest (see I Kings 19), Satan's attacks (Matt. 4)

#2) Periods of doubt and fear provide opportunities for God to reveal Himself in greater measure

#3) During a crisis, God builds our faith and enables us to trust Him like we've never done before
