DADs…what are your struggles?
Struggles come in all shapes and sizes - fears, addictions, persecution, and worries can all seem to take over our thoughts. God tells us that we will face trials, but that we should not lose hope!
Be encouraged, God has called you an overcomer!
This week let’s tackle the issue of struggles with those things causing fear. As a man and the DAD…there are probably countless fears we could list.
Fear of failure.
Fear of not measuring up.
Fear of tomorrow.
To name a few...
Zig Ziegler once said, “FEAR” stands for “False Evidence Appearing Real.” DADS...it is that "false evidence" in the battle fields of our minds that triggers our greatest fears, sometimes moving us one step forward and two steps back!
It has also been said that “90% of what we worry about, causing us to struggle and leading to fear, never ever happens.”
In the middle of his darkness, David makes two bold statements followed by two questions found in Psalm 27:1:
1 The LORD is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life— of whom shall I be afraid?
DADs…if you are struggling with fear, and constantly finding yourself moving one step forward and two steps back…then perhaps like David, even in the midst of our greatest fears, we need to profess Today, that our heavenly Father is our salvation and our stronghold!
DADs...Be encouraged! God has called you an overcomer! Whom shall you fear?
“Get in the game”…
Today is game day…
and so is every day…
God gives you!
