F.3: How do I get more power in my life?

A Story

At a men’s conference a number of years ago, we taught the concept of the power of God flowing through us. However, when it came to coaching, one man had trouble thinking about how this illustration represents true power in his life. He knew that God had not given him a spirit of fear. But the fear persisted.  We worked on these steps to help him personally see what had to happen to have power in his life.
