Elder Lok Vi Ming
I Once Was Fearful
The speaker begins by reminding us that everyone has fears and phobias. The challenge of trusting God is not unique to us alone, but it is something that everyone has to face and overcome.
At the heart of our fears is an insecurity that God is not on our side; that we are far from God and He is far from us. Conversely, faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance of what we do not see (Hebrews 11:1). That we trust that God is for us, even though we may not see it (yet).
In this message, the speaker reminds us of the many times when God has reminded us not to be afraid, of the many times that God has stepped in to prove the faith that has been placed in Him, and urges us to respond by trusting in God in all that we do.
