In this episode of “Crisis, Christ, and Confidence,” Drs. Gregory Poland, David Garner, and Peter Lillback discuss updates on the COVID-19 outbreak and how believers should navigate their fear. Whether it is illness, the economy, or social isolation, the Bible has something to say about fear. Listen to this informative and pastoral discussion on the importance of (1) filling our minds with scripture, (2) looking to the sovereignty of God, and (3) stepping forth to do what is right – even when we are afraid.
“Be strong and courageous, for you shall cause this people to inherit the land that I swore to their fathers to give them. 7Only be strong and very courageous, being careful to do according to all the law that Moses my servant commanded you. Do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may have good success wherever you go. 8This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. 9Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:6-9)
“In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I shall not be afraid. What can flesh do to me?“ (Pslams 56:4)
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.” (John 14:27)
