Fear makes us do crazy things. Things will happen we can not control. Our response is one of three choices: 1) There is no hope - I quit. This leads to depression and defeat. 2) I am my hope - I will work it out. This results in continual chaos. 3) Jesus is my hope - I will trust. This leads to the good of God. The only thing bigger than the bad of life is the good of God! When life gets scary, God has called us to be a champion with Christ not a powerless victim. There is hope but only through God. Expect to be surprised, be crazy confident in Jesus, know your identity, hear Jesus, and attempt something impossible for God’s glory. We are no longer a slave to fear - we are God’s children—Champions of Christ! Champions do things in life that get Jesus noticed and known by others.
