Trusting God When You’re Afraid

Sep 13, 2021
Trusting God when you're afraid


Sometimes the world is overwhelming, and fear gets the best of us. COVID-19, wildfires, hate crimes, war—just watching the news can be terrifying. But God tells us not to fear.


Dear Lord, I confess that sometimes your command
to be steadfast and strong feels impossible for me;
being unafraid seems out of my reach.

Please strengthen my worried heart, bolster my sagging courage,
and deepen my feeble trust.

I know that without you bravery is impossible, but with you nothing is.


Memorize Joshua 1:9 today and recite it the next time you feel anxious or afraid.
