Being Strong When You’re Terrified: Joshua 1 9

January 28th, 2015

Joshua 1 9

In Joshua 1 9, God commands us to have courage, but we know that’s not always easy.

We’ve heard the stories of brave men and women of all ages who face terrifying situations and demonstrate a faith most of us can only wonder at. We hold them up as heroes, and rightly so. And yet, most of us will never face a situation like that, so we are left feeling somehow weaker, not knowing if we could ever be that brave, have that much faith. What do we know of fear and being strong in the face of terror?

The truth is, we all face overwhelming fear at some point in our lives. In this message, learn how to quiet your heart and mind to hear how God is taking care of you.
