TAKE THE LAND / PART 2: COURAGE FOR TODAY

Joshua 1:6-9 NIV
, “Be strong and courageous, because you will lead these people to inherit the land I swore to their forefathers to give them. Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go. Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you where you go.”


THREE TRUTHS ABOUT FEAR: 


1.  
Every fear you face comes from the fear, “What if I can’t ______________________________  it?” If you knew you could handle anything, what would you have to fear?  ______________________________   

2.  You ______________________________  handle whatever comes your way.

3.  If you don’t  ______________________________  your fears your fears will ______________________________  you.
 

DON’T LET YOUR FEARS ROB YOUR ______________________________ .
 

GOD’S STRATEGY FOR CULTIVATING COURAGE (v. 6-7):

 1.  
 ______________________________  what God says.

2.   ______________________________  
what God says.

3.   ______________________________  
what God says.


COMMUNION DISCUSSION:
Communion reminds us that on the cross Jesus faced and conquered the source of everyone of our fears. In him, we now have courage to face the future.

1.  What are you afraid of today? Ask God’s Spirit to encourage you.

2.  What is one thing God is asking you to do that you would do if you knew you could not fail? Tell God and commit to do it.

3.  Pray: Thank Jesus for facing his fear for you by dying on the cross and promising to fight for you.
