Steps to Freedom from Fear
Fear is one of the most common and crippling experiences of life. It damages and constrains our lives, our work, our relationships and our ministry and service for the Lord. It affects every part of our being. This kind of ungodly fear comes from the enemy, whose plan is to isolate us and separate us from loving comfort.
However, God designed us to live a fear-free life and the Lord Jesus died on the cross to bring you freedom and abundant life in Him. This ministry course looks biblically at the often deep-seated root causes of our fears and how God's healing love can bring freedom, release and restoration.
The course is designed for those who struggle with fear and also provides important keys and equipping for those who minister healing to others. The title of the course - Steps to Freedom from Fear - recognises that full healing is a process and there may be several stages to receiving release and freedom.
Teaching includes the following:
Types of fear
The clear distincition is drawn between godly and ungodly fear. Fear can be a natural reaction, designed by God for our protection, but it should not control our lives. We will look at what Jesus taught about fear.
How fear affects the whole person
Our response to perceived danger, degrees of fear (including acute and chronic fear), effects of shock and trauma, and the effect of fear on the spirit are explained and illustrated.
Specific areas of fear
Biblical and practical teaching on fear and rejection, fear of failure and the fear of death, dying and illness. This covers the keys to healing and restoration. The principles involved can be readily applied to any other fears.
Moving on from fear
Explains how to rebuild, in a godly way, those areas of everyday life that were previously constrained by fear.
Teaching on this ministry course is interspersed with several opportunities to receive prayer.
