The giants we face have different names: Fear. Discouragement. Loneliness. Worry. Guilt. Temptation. Anger. Resentment. Doubt. Procrastination. Failure. Jealousy. Call them what you will; they’re only giants, after all, like Goliath. He was a shade over nine feet tall, but it only added up to a bigger dent in the pavement once he fell. The bigger they come, the harder they fall.

Rapture practice, 6:30 PM, Wednesday

Can you imagine...

walking into church one Sunday and seeing this announcement posted on the bulletin board?

The amazing reality

Can you imagine...

walking into church one Sunday and seeing this announcement posted on the bulletin board?

oh, I know it might seem silly

...to think about attending a rehearsal for the Rapture—but here’s the amazing reality:

God’s Word outlines ten ways we should be preparing for Christ’s return!

And when you think about it, it only makes sense...rehearsal just means getting ready for something—it’s preparation for a future event. And that is exactly what we should be doing in light of Christ’s return.

Does Fear Ever Go Away?

Asking for a friend

Last year the most searched word on a popular Bible app was fear. As COVID-19 surged around the globe, fears for health and safety were matched by concerns for the economy, mental health, education, and more. Many who avoided the disease found themselves crippled by anxiety.

Christians were not and are not immune. Conquering fear is not a one-time journey. It is a path that each of us must take again and again as new fears arise to block our way. Right now, someone in your life is probably overwhelmed with anxiety.

In Hope, Dr. David Jeremiah explores the fears holding us back. This book can equip you to minister personally to someone whom God has placed in your sphere of influence. As you explore what the Bible says about fear, you will begin to see God’s power and love guarding your every step—and empowering you to reach others with unshakable hope.

The Jesus You May Not Know

EXCERPT FROM THE INTRODUCTION

There's no question about it

... we live in a world that is often a scary place to be. When we face these fears that prompt us to pull the covers over our heads and retreat from the world, what will we put our hope in? Will we exert our energy in wishful thinking, crossing our fingers that our circumstances will change? Will we hold our breath in the hope that luck will go our way this time?

Biblical hope is not wishful thinking. It’s not a lucky chance. It’s not ungrounded optimism. No, it’s a rock-solid belief in the character of God. That’s not to say we are guaranteed rosebushes without thorns or a life free from tragedy or disaster. But because we know that God is all-knowing and all-powerful and for us, we can face down our fears and trust the outcome of our circumstances to Him.

Hebrews 11:1 says, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” The antidote to fear is faith. And faith gives us hope in the midst of whatever scary thing we face.

When the apostle Paul was giving counsel to Timothy, his young protégé, he knew Timothy was afraid of something— probably of his assignment to lead the large church in Ephesus. Timothy was raised in a small town in Asia Minor, and Ephesus was the big city. Paul himself had spent three years in Ephesus, building up the church there. It was led by a strong group of elders, yet false teachers were causing trouble. And Timothy was supposed to go in and be the leader of the whole thing. What young pastor wouldn’t have felt fear at the prospect?

So what did Paul tell Timothy? “Your fear is not from God. What do come from God are power, love, and a stable mental attitude” (2 Timothy 1:7, my paraphrase).

Paul knew that when we get God’s perspective on the source of our fear, we can set aside what is not from Him and embrace what is. In all my years of following Christ, studying the Bible, and pastoring well-intentioned Christians, I have yet to find a fear for which God does not have an answer. And the reason is simple: God Himself is the answer to all our fears.
