Week 1 – Jeff Maness – January 7th, 2018
Whatever is first in your life, that is what you will fear the most. This is why it’s so important for us to put God first. Our fear of Him will drive our faith in Him. Not being afraid of God, but standing in awe of who He is.
Whatever you fear the most will reveal what is first in your life.
Luke 20:19 19 The teachers of religious law and the leading priests wanted to arrest Jesus immediately because they realized he was telling the story against them—they were the wicked farmers. But they were afraid of the people’s reaction.

1. Set Him Apart

Isaiah 8:13b He is the one you should fear. He is the one who should make you tremble.
2. Stand In Awe

Job 42:5-6 5 I had only heard about you before, but now I have seen you with my own eyes. 6 I take back everything I said, and I sit in dust and ashes to show my repentance.”
3. Seek Him For Safety
Isaiah 8:13-14a Make the Lord of Heaven’s Armies holy in your life. He is the one you should fear. He is the one who should make you tremble. 14 He will keep you safe.
Proverbs 18:10 The name of the Lord is a strong fortress; the godly run to him and are safe.
Isaiah 8:13-14 Make the Lord of Heaven’s Armies holy in your life. He is the one you should fear. He is the one who should make you tremble. 14 He will keep you safe. But to Israel and Judah he will be a stone that makes people stumble, a rock that makes them fall. And for the people of Jerusalem he will be a trap and a snare.
