Have No Fear...Really?
Have no fear! Yes, we have heard it a million times from well-meaning people who want to help us work through a season of uncertainty or anxiety. Great advice, and Biblically sound as it may be, the only way to really be free from fear is to take it to the cross, and lay it down.
But how do we do that? What does that look like practically? Is it a verbal declaration of "I hereby lay down this fear?" Has that ever worked? We may put on a brave face, either to convince ourselves or to convince others that have it all together. Truth is, we're all afraid of something, and none of us truly have the power on our own to be completely free from all fears.
Pastor Steve continues his study in Isaiah and will walk us through three things we need to remember about what God has done, is doing, and has promised to do in the future.
The good news of great joy the angels spoke of when they appeared to the shepherds all those years ago is still good. It's still relevant. It's still for you.
