There is a factory that seems to be working overtime to produce fear in our lives…. But there is good news, it is actually great news… we can break free from the fear factory and discover God’s great escape plan This series reminds us that despite the uncertainty of the world and the pressure we place on ourselves, Scripture directs us to release that fear and anxiety to God. When we do, we don’t have to lie awake at night. Our shortness of breath can be replaced by life-giving rest. We can feel a peace that goes beyond all understanding. We will be challenged to be open about our insecurities and recognize that we all suffer from them. There is a key verse that we anchor to in this series… each portion of it allows us to anchor to a truth that is explained and expanded in the Word - Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:4-7 NIV
