What are you afraid of right now? I bet there is something. The future. The bills. An old wound. An addiction. Spending your life alone. Spending your energy in a purposeless career.
Everything in me wants to tell you, “It’s going to be ok.”
But that platitude will make you weak. It will lull you into comfortable complacency. God knows you were made for more. So, let me tell you the truth.
First, in all likelihood, what’s ahead is going to be so much harder than you can imagine. Of course, that’s not a guarantee. Sometimes we get a bye.
The second thing you need to know is this: If you can learn to live in faith rather than fear, it’s going to be so much more amazing than you can imagine. And that, I can promise you.
God wants to strengthen you for what’s ahead. He wants the muscles of your emotions, your mind, and your will to be trained for walking in the most difficult places.
So, I’m not going to tell you what you want to hear. I’m going to take you to God’s Word and invite God’s Spirit to tell you what you need to hear. And we’ll use the ancient writing of the prophet Habakkuk to turn up the volume.
My publisher is offering you a free downloadable sampler of Habakkuk: Remembering God's Faithfulness When He Seems Silent. Get a sneak peak into the study and be sure to scroll down to the faith and fear inventory.
