The prevailing emotion right now is that of FEAR and the big question right now is “How do I overcome my fear?” My answer is that “you overcome FRIGHT with FEAR.

“What?” Chill! Here’s my explanation. You overcome WORLDLY FEAR with the FEAR of the Lord! This would be the main theme of our study today. There are 4 CLEAR DIVISIONS that I see in Psalm 34 and they are as follows:

TEXT: Psalm 34
BODY SERMON
I. WORSHIP OF THE LORD vv. 1 – 3

II.GOD’S DELIVERANCE from FEAR vv. 4 – 6

III.THE FEAR that leads TO DELIVERANCE vv. 7 – 22
1. The COMMAND to SEEK God – v. 8
2. The COMMAND to FEAR the Lord – vv. 9 -10
3. The COMMAND to LISTEN to God’s TEACHING – VV. 11 – 12
4. The COMMAND to RESTRAIN the TONGUE from EVIL SPEECH v. 13
5. The COMMAND to DEPART from EVIL and DO GOOD – v. 14

IV.THE BLESSING of FEAR and the CURSE of NO FEAR
1. God’s ABIDING PRESENCE and ANSWERED PRAYER – v. 15
2. God’s DESTRUCTION of EVIL DOERS – v. 16
3. God’s DELIVERANCE from ALL TROUBLES – v. 17
4. God’s NEARNESS and SALVATION – v. 18
5. God’s PRESERVATION vv. 19 – 20
6. God’s PUNISHMENT v. 21
7. God’s JUSTIFICATION v. 22

It is by having the FEAR of the LORD – A genuine RELATIONSHIP with the Lord which brings about REVERENTIAL FEAR
