A Message from Bible Center
“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
The Bible tells us over 100 times “do not fear,” because we can trust that our help comes from the Lord. But when we do experience the very natural feeling of fear it is not a failure, rather an opportunity to slow down, pay attention, and refocus our energy on our heavenly father who loves us.
