Conquer Your Fears


by Mary Fairchild from ThoughCo.com

Jesus spoke the Word of God throughout his ministry. When faced with the devil’s lies and temptations, he countered with the truth of God’s Word. The spoken Word of God is like a living, powerful sword in our mouths (Hebrews 4:12), and if Jesus depended upon it to face challenges in life, so can we.

If you need encouragement from God’s Word to conquer your fears, take strength from these Bible verses about courage.

Deuteronomy 31:6
Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.

The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?

Prayers for Boy Scouts Friends and Family

What did you feel when you heard this story? The list of responses, it’s endless. Three young Boy Scouts on a scouting trip and their lives were gone from us and their families in an instance after their sailboat struck an electric line hanging over the lake.

I’m thinking how horrific this circumstance is!!!  And how if a parent does all the right things and teach them all the right things, they will be perfectly safe!

But, the truth is that you have to put them in God’s hands all the time. You can never take for granted that our kids or loved one are gonna be with us every day. Wow! This story is tough to handle!

Join us and pray for God to be with their family and friends after their loss, as we ask for comfort and grace.
