Get ready for a big kick-off! But first, here’s a road map of what you’ll see each day for the next 15 weekdays:
- READ: Each day you’ll read a Bible passage speaking truth about fear and going along with each story.
- GO DEEP: Watch each day’s video from your favorite artists and personalities. They’ll share a personal story on fear and some powerful insights they’ve learned from experience!
- NOTES: These are so cool! Notes from the Life Application Study Bible will be provided each day to help you understand and apply the verses you’re reading. They’ll give you insights that you wouldn’t have known otherwise!
- BONUS – RESPOND: You can always join the conversation in the comments – ask questions, share stories, encourage others who are battling with fear or anxiety, as well. You can also always post a prayer request or pray for others on the WAY-FM Prayer Wall.
Here we go!
Read (from the New Living Translation)
Don’t be afraid, for I am with you.
Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you.
I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.
Leave it to Wally (from The Wally Show) to start your series on fear by doing something a little crazy! Wally’s comical (and daring) introduction in today’s video will make you laugh, but his heartfelt story about giving God his deepest fear will get you thinking.
Notes (from the Life Application Study Bible)
Although God chose the Israelites to represent him to the world, they failed to do this; so God punished them and sent them into captivity. Now all believers are God’s chosen people, and all share the responsibility of representing him into the world. One day God will bring all his faithful people together. We need not fear because: (1) God is with us (“I am with you”); (2) God has established a relationship with us (“I am your God”); and (3) God gives us assurance of his strength, help, and victory over sin and death. Are you aware of all the ways God has helped you?
