Bishop TD Jakes – Fear is Holding You Back (Video)

Matthew 14:22-36
Sermon notes:
They are fearful of 2 things
1) The Storm or Situation
2) The Solution

When you allow the things on the outside to get on the inside you begin to go down.
Build up a defense to the things on the outside keep them from getting on the inside.
You don’t want to associate, become tied up with, become intricately involved with people who penetrate your pitch.
Negative, doubtful, fearful, bad news boys who keep comin into your life … begin to leave holes in your faith.
You want to be with people who build you up…. so you can go through it without it going through you.
Whatever your mouth is talkin’ about that’s what your heart is filled with.
They’re afraid of the solution.
God is hard to recognize in a storm.
Stuck on the boat of mediocrity.

Peter is the only one willing to leave the boat.

It’s a spirit that won’t let you be happy.
It’s a spirit that won’t let you have joy.
It’s a spirit that won’t let you walk in confidence.
It’s a spirit that keeps you living in your past.

What would you do if you had no fear?
That is what fear is robbing from you.

    Diane,
    Thank you for being so open in your comment. I am sure that there are several others in the same position as you. I encourage you to keep God first in your life and to continue to lift your Mother and family up in prayer, James 5:13-16 states 13Is any one of you in trouble? He should pray. Is anyone happy? Let him sing songs of praise. 14Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven. 16Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.

    As a mother I can tell you that I love all of my children with every fiber of my being and there are times, when even though I love them, I do not always make the right choices. I pray for them and myself and for wisdom and guidance. I pray that God’s hand, love and protection covers them in all they experience even when it is my own error.

    As people we all learn from our past experiences both good and bad. Perhaps there is something in your Mother’s life that has made her the way that she is, whatever the case you are doing the right thing by seeking help from the Lord and advice from Godly people. This is a wise choice and I pray that as your life goes on you continue to follow this path in addition to listening to your intuition.

    Family life can really be complicated at times. There are few people that will see your strengths and weaknesses as clearly as those who love you most. I understand how important a Mother’s unconditional love and support can be but above all God is your Father and He is always there to help. When you said “treat others the way you want to be treated”. Place that scripture deep in your heart and not only treat those, but Love Those. So continue to love, respect and forgive your Mother the way that you want love, respect and forgiveness. At the end of the day you might just be the person who teaches her how the action of true love works.

    Exodous 20:12
    “Honor your father and mother. Then you will live a long, full life in the land the LORD your God is giving you.”

  8. Diane says:

    Please pray for my husband Billie. He’s really in need of the Spirit of the Lord to fall on him. Please pray for peace and contitment. He’s in need of a Church home and fellowship. To learn to forgive and Love unconditionally. He has no friends and do not trust easily. Please HELP. PRAY PRAY PRAY! In Jesus’name. Yes I am a believer and yes I have a relationship with Jesus. I want my Husband to have one too. I want us fellowship together, go Sunday school, BibleStudies, visiting other Churches programs. I truly NO God can do anything. It is possible, that’s the reason I’m asking for your prayers too. God bless each of you…….
