“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord you God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
Our guest speaker, Pastor Shawn Lovejoy, preaches a stand alone message on fear. One of the most repeated commands in the Bible is: “Do not be afraid.” There are stressors in our life that are affecting us, and fear has taken its grip on our lives. it could be fear of pain, failure or loss. Whatever it is, God desires for us to not be discouraged or paralyzed by our fears because we stop dreaming. We begin to hinder the “great” things God has for us because we settle for just the “good” things. You could be one courageous next step away from all that God has for you in the next season of life. Courage is essentially refusing to allow our fears to paralyze us.
What are you dreaming? What is your Jordan? What is your first step to cross it?
Matthew 28:5-6, Joshua 1:8-9, 2 Timothy 1:7
