Heights. Spiders. Death. Failure. The dark. Our fears come in all shapes and sizes. But where do they come from? Is it wrong to be scared? And is it even possible to live a fear-free life? In this series, we answer these questions and push ourselves to face our fears head on. Welcome to Room 101.

Forever Fearful, Never Scared

Pastor Steven Furtick

To kick off our series Room 101: Facing Your Greatest Fears, Pastor Steven laid the groundwork for the next few weeks by helping us wrestle through a complicated but powerful concept - how can we be commanded repeatedly throughout the Bible to "fear God" while at the same time being told by God "Do not fear"? How can both of these commands coexist?

Running From Your Life

Pastor Steven Furtick

We are all afraid of something. And for most of us, these fears are preventing us from reaching our greatest potential. Fear of acceptance. Fear of failure. Fear of not being in control. The thing is, many of these fears aren't even rational. They're exaggerated lies that Satan wants us to believe about us, about our circumstances and about God. And these lies can lead us into some dark situations. In part two of our series Room 101: Facing Your Greatest Fears, Pastor Steven teaches through the life of Elijah to show us three powerful techniques God uses to help us overpower our fears in the face of the Enemy.

Fear's Greatest Hit

Pastor Steven Furtick

Think of your worst fear. The fear that keeps you up at night or wakes you in a panic. For many of us, these are the "what if" scenarios we replay in our heads over and over again. Why do we struggle to get past our deepest fears? Is there ever a way out of this destructive cycle of "what if"?

Flip the Lens

Pastor Steven Furtick

If you look closely at your fears, you'll quickly find that they all tend to have the same distinguishing characteristics. They paralyze, condemn, diminish hope, and are designed to render us ineffective - and they're all based entirely on something that might not even happen. Why do our fears have this type of powerful control on our lives? Often, it has to do with our own limited perspective. In the final installment of our series Room 101, Pastor Steven teaches us the difference between the warnings of God and the threats of the Enemy, as we learn a perspective-shifting approach to our greatest fears.
