FAITH OVER FEAR | Overcome Fear – Inspirational & Motivational Video


How many God-given dreams Have you and I left unrealized because fear placed us in a prison that we could not escape from Let me ask another question How many God accomplishments with your name written on them with my name written on them have gone unaccomplished because fear paralyzes. Think about that question So here’s the deal if you and I continue, if you continue to live in fear your family your friends your church and the world will miss your unique contribution Now let me stay a little bit more theologically and a little bit more strongly. You and I will rob God of his glory if we remain in fear and I don’t want to be a glory thief. But imagine if you will being on your deathbed and standing Around your bed the ghost of the dreams the ideas The abilities the talents given to you by life at you for whatever reason you never pursued those dreams you never acted on those ideas you never use those gifts and there they are standing around your bed and looking at you with large angry eyes saying, we came to you and only you could have given us life and now we must die with you forever. The question is if you died today what dreams what ideas what leadership? What books? What gifts will die with you? Very good friend that I lost recently Myles Munroe said the wealthiest place in the planet is not in the far east where there’s oil in the ground it’s not in South Africa where there diamond mines he said the wealthiest place in the planet is the cemetery. There you will find potential never realized, there you will find dreams never pursued, there you’ll find people allow themselves to be imprisoned by fear and living a small life. Maybe that’s why one woman asked in a moment of anguish, what if you live your whole life only to discover it was wrong. Maybe that’s why Henry David Thoreau’s, God to reach the point of death only to realize that you’ve never lived Only to realize that you’ve never scraped the surface of your potential. Are you tired of being stuck in fear? Well, God wants to give us courage to face our fears. I grew up as a compulsive stutter One of my greatest fears in life was talking in front of people. Because when you stutter, it doesn’t go so well and people laugh at you Got laughed at a lot I had to go to a little special class for people who couldn’t talk real good and other kids knew and they’d walk by the class like hey, hey, how you do do doing? Didn’t want to talk. I remember in 10th grade leaving a french class because I had to stand up and give an oral examination I left the class it was too painful I didn’t want to be laughed at the teacher was very merciful and let me come in after class when everybody else left to give my message in 1998 Played one last year of professional football then in the fall of 1990 I was a brand new Christian, and I was invited to go speak at a youth event It’s like former NFL player who loves Jesus give him a microphone to speak And I really wrestled with God I said God. Why would you send me to go? I’m a compulsive stutterer I’m a brand new Christian. Why would you send me to go and all of the memories and everybody making fun of me And I could see myself been on stage like stuttering and not knowing what to do and embarrassing myself again And I was arguing with God, God why would you do this? Why would you have them call me surely there’s somebody better who can actually put words together. Why would you send me? I was afraid I remember I was in the shower just wrestling with God and praying to him And a couple things happened not an audible voice, but the first thing was this Derwin If I can raise my son Jesus from the dead, I can move your tongue to talk and Derwin I put something in you, a message of grace, and I want you to unleash it but you got to trust me. Fear became a friend because it pushed me to my daddy. Let me say that again, fear became a friend because it pushed me to my daddy. So when the enemy knocks on the door I let Jesus answer because it takes me to my daddy. How about you? Where does fear take you to? The bottle? prescriptions? So I went down there, and I preached and note cards were fallen out of my pocket and I shared my story and at the end of it a bunch of people came to Jesus. And God was like see I got this. What’s your lo and behold moment that fears right there but you’re paralyzed because you’re afraid of your fear more than you love the glory of God Maybe it’s a broken marriage If you let people know that you’re actually human and there’s cracks and fractures in your life But being afraid that people will actually know that you’re human that’s why Jesus went to the cross because he knows that we’re broken. If you’re hurting here today, we have a savior Who longs and loves to church hurting people with his grace Maybe it’s an addiction Maybe your wife keeps telling you, you know sweetie. I think you got a problem a bottle of wine every night is a problem. Maybe for some of you You’re coasting through life and not really challenging yourself because you’re afraid to fail I’d rather try and fail then to never try What you waiting on, tomorrow’s not promised For some of you God has some eptastic things right in your mist Oh my gosh, what if I would have allowed my fear of stuttering to prevent me from going to Columbia, South Carolina in the fall of 1999 How many lives would not be impacted? I want you to feel the weight of this What is God putting on your heart? What is that beautiful song in his symphony that he wants you to sing and you have that special note? Maybe some of you’re afraid, well I like what you said preacher man that was good you got me going, but if I do something like that, I’ll have to give up this stuff Guys in America, we’ve proven that we can get a lot of stuff. Have we proven that we can actually live Stuff does not equate to life Maybe right now you’re thinking, you know Pastor Derwin, I feel what you’re saying. I really do, but if I had this I could if I had this I would, if I had this I should Don’t live a woulda coulda shoulda life You’ve got the lord You got everything you need right now in Jesus everything you need right now in him. I don’t know what your giant is, but you have him. Attack your fear by trusting Christ That’s going to look very different and very unique in all of our lives but in God’s Providence That will be the case and God doesn’t want us to be paralyzed by fear He wants that fear to move us to press into him so that he can fight our battles for his glory Today the Lord will conquer you. Today God will heal my marriage. Today God will touch the deepest broken part of my life today Today the Lord will do it.

  3. Great speech, but let every single belief on its right path, I wish that, from you speech, I realize totally God is great enough to call him Daddy, he is the greatest of all and the most merciful one.

  4. Today I want to be brave because I rest in the arms of my Creator who died for us in the cross.

    Having The Creator to come down to this Earth to show us we can do it, to live amongst us and suffer what we suffer, what are we going through day by day is not as shocking as knowing that some people still do not believe He died for us… for our sins.

    This life is not impossible if you give yourself to The Creator our God "I Am".

  12. Oh Lord I am not able to overcome fear.. I am struggling with this fear please help me and strengthen me with your spirit to testify your grace which I can't explain with words.

  13. My fear leads me to God because I’m fearful of believing and having hope and then at the end…It’s all gone. But I’m afraid to say my true feelings because what if God gets mad at me. God puts trust in my heart because I still trust and choose to believe even if at the end it’s all darkness it’s better to live happy and believe then live in hatred and disappointment…

  14. The word of God in the Bible is speaking to us.Letting all know, for what is about to come. Not an easy thing to hear, God talks to us about having fear. In the Bible . He tells us to have no fear ,for what is coming. don't let fear overcome you. fear will paralyze you , take away from you and Rob God's Glory. Fear is what's causing your insecurities to grow greater ,and your inability to have or strengthen your courage. blinding you in your sure path towards death . Put on God's suit of armor,Jesus Christ himself will walk us through these hard times. hand in hand!!! there will be no one left out,or forgotten for his will is for us to be alive and well in his kingdom. Don't put your guard down Jesus Christ it is your true Savior to life .a blessing and a prayer sent to all my sisters and brother is specially you and Nita hey you look like if you need some help just kidding love you very much… may God strengthen you and bless you always

  16. Fear is the biggest obstacle any person will have to deal with , faith is the opposite of fear , if u really have faith u will be fearless , everyday I’m trying through faith to overcome my fears , one inch , one step at a time , life is to precious and to short to let your fears stop u from the fruits that are on the other side of fear , so my fellow Christians if u truly believe your going home , so what can ever be better then that ? Conquer your fears , mitigate the risk , plan , practice , accumulate knowledge but conquer your fears , the Lord wants u to have a full life , the Lord wants u to go further , use the beautiful gift he bestowed on us

  17. This was awesome!!! Great message!! Thank-you and Amen. The Great Creator, our heavenly Father loves to create with us. When we suppress our gifts and talents, we are refusing to create with Him. We are not allowing Him to do what He wants to do through us!

  18. ‪Living in this fallen world worries me (and maybe you too) but living in a relationship where we always trust #God and seek him can free us from everything we may worry about. 🙏🏾🌻🙏🏾 #Assurance‬

  19. Please pray for me i have fear of thunderstroms and tornadoes and wind i don't want to fear god i want to trust him not fear him i love god he's my life

  20. Right now over these passed few days I have had this fear of being controlled by a ghost it sounds silly and dumb but I thought it was coming for me and my family my Dad told me GO TO JESUS so I did I put on my rosary wore it everyday so far looked up quotes out of the Bible asked Jesus to help me and take my fear away and resolve it with his love and power and that’s EXACTLY what Jesus did and I’m so grateful for Jesus that I can ask him anything anytime and he will answer I LOVE YOU LORD JESUS AND I WILL LOVE YOU AND THABK YOU FOREVER

  21. This will help me a lot, I’m an agnostic but I do appreciate this good part of religion. We need people to help out each other instead of telling each other they are wrong. Agree to disagree is the future of humanity.

  22. Fear paralized. Faith pushes us to believe in GOD and His son, Jesuschrist. in addition, it gives us the impulse to face mountains, circunstances finantials, familiar storm. GOD made me more than conqueror healthy prosperous provided loved in the Mighty name of Jesus. Hallelujah 💞☝💕

  23. I place my life and everything I have in my Heavenly Father, for his amazing son Jesus Christ, the first in my heart and my life. Always put him first and you will never be afraid. With him beside you.

  24. Stop listening to that voice that tells you you're it's impossible. You won't be it. You won't have it. You won't… That voice is a liar. Stop listening to it.

  25. Dear Lord! Our Father!I will love You forever!You are my Shepherd!I believe you in all field of my life!And I know that you will never leave me!❤❤❤

  26. Do Not fear The Power Of I AM is with Us, We Have Power To Oever Come Frar We Are in The Victoy Of Jesus And The I AM, I AM A Winner? Amen

  27. You got everything you need in Christ. Attack fear by trusting Christ. Don't Rob your family or friends of your glory from God. God will heal your crack.

  28. Dear God, let me overcome my fears and make me a vessel of your peace. Help me to know my purpose in this life. Amen

  29. I had to make a speech for my graduation. I was so scared and felt like God made me do this to either show me that I could do it or that fear is there but everyone else including me could overcome that fear. But when I finished I realized that it's both.

    Life is a series of events that you don't have to go through alone God is their when you need him even if we don't see ,hear or feel him there.

    Don't be scared because when you face your fear you realize it's not that scary

  30. Thank You Father God that I don't have to live in fear because you're my everything and only you Father God can fix it, and I Thank You for taking all of my fears away from me Glory Hallelujah in your son Jesus Christ Holy Name Amen
