Faith in the Midst of Fear

January 20, 2013 Speaker: Fred Greco Series: Genesis

Topic: AM Service Passage: Genesis 32:1–32:21

All of us get afraid at one time or another. As Jacob prepares to meet Esau again and is gripped by fear, we learn that what is important is not whether we are afraid or not, but what we do, and to whom we turn, when we are afraid.


I. Life Confronted by Fear
A. A Divine Support in Fear

B. Danger!

II. Seeking God in Fear
A. A Model Prayer

B. Standing on the Promises

III. God’s Challenge in Fear
A. Confronting Fear

B. Confronting Ourselves

Questions for consideration: (1) What kind of things make you afraid? How do you deal with that fear? (2) What are the Biblical elements of Jacob’s prayer? How can you emulate them? (3) What are you prepared to surrender today if the Lord asks you?
