Fear Less | Spirit of Fear

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but one of power, love, and sound judgment.  2 Timothy 1:7   “It’ll never get better!” “I can’t do this!” “Disaster is about to happen!” Statements like those come from a spirit of fear. We’re all afraid at times: tornado sirens, a child’s high fever,…

Fear Less | Confidence in Fear

Though a mighty army surrounds me, my heart will not be afraid.  Psalm 27:3   ISIS. Another school shooting. Republicans and Democrats screaming at each other. Job layoffs.

Fear Less | The Storm’s Purpose

The disciples were absolutely terrified. “Who is this man?” they asked each other.  Mark 4:41   “God wants me to be happy, so why is this happening!” “I’ve tried to obey the Lord, but everything is going wrong!” “I’ve prayed about this issue, and it’s still there.

Fear Less | When God Sleeps

Jesus was sleeping at the back of the boat with his head on a cushion. Mark 4:38   They’d known storms before; they made their living on the seas. But this storm…something about it felt like this was the big one. Pride made them row harder, experience told them not to panic, but fear howled…
