FACING YOUR FEARS
“Facing Your Fear of Inadequacy”
Pastor Duane Cross | 11.16.14
“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” - 2 Corinthians 12:9 I.
I need to admit my inadequacy and affirm God’s sufficiency.
“Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me... For when I am weak, then I am strong.” - 2 Corinthians 12:8-10
“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” - Matthew 5:3 II.
I need to abide in Christ and allow His power to flow through me.
“Remain in me and I will remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” - John 15:4-5

“Greater is he who is in me than he who is in the world. ” - I John 4:4
III. I need to accept God’s amazing grace.
I was seized by the power of a great affection.
