Week 4: Redirecting Fear 

Big Idea: Fear is one of the most basic human emotions. In many ways, it is hardwired into us to keep us alive, but over time fear can dictate the perimeters of our life. Perhaps this is why Scripture calls us to fear God first, because our fear of God puts all other fears into context. As Moses is called out of the wilderness, he is given a mission, but was afraid to embrace his call out of fear of people and talent. But when God reveals his identity as the God of his forefathers his fear of people and talent, was replaced by the fear of the Almighty God (Ex. 3:6). When fear is misplaced, the power of our faith in God is confined. When Moses’ fear of people became greater than his fear of God, it limited his ability to embrace his calling (Ex. 3:10), but when his fear of God was greater than his fear of people – he was able to lead God’s people courageously through the Red Sea (Ex. 14) and on to the edge of the promised land. Imagine what God could do through you if your fear of God was greater than your fear of people, failure, or even death?  

Key Passages: Exodus 3:7-4:31, 14:1-31; Deuteronomy 6:24, 10:12-22; Proverbs 1, 3:7, 14:27. 

Sharing Life: 

  • What stood out to you from this weekend’s message?   
  • The Bible says, “Fear not” 365 times, so God knows that humans struggle with fear. In what area(s) do you battle fear? 

Opening Scripture:  

  • Read Exodus 3:7-4:31. How did Moses respond when he was afraid? How do you respond when you are afraid? 
  • Read Exodus 14:1-31. How did Moses act when he feared God above all else? Share an example when you chose to fear and obey God with courage. 
  • Read Proverbs 1:7, 3:7, 14:27. How does fearing the Lord affect our life? 

Praying Together:  

  • Take a moment to pray for one another. 
  • Share an area where you want to choose to fear God above all else.
