Even in the middle of hard and uncertain times, it is possible to live without fear!
Join host, Barb Roose, and special guest Katy McCown on an all new episode of Better Together! Katy is a powerful Bible teacher, writer for Proverbs 31, mother of 6, and the wife of a former NFL quarterback. She has faced seasons of scary uncertainty and has learned how to trust God’s promises and live without fear.
3 Ways to Live with No Fear This Year:
1. Fix your eyes on God’s Word and His ways.
When we fix our eyes on our circumstances or the world around us, it can be easy for fear to take hold of our thoughts and lives. Instead, Katy encourages us to fix our eyes on Jesus and keep our minds set on His Word and ways. Take some time to reflect: Where are your eyes fixed in this season?
2. Understand the difference between knowing God relationally and informationally.
It is possible to know a lot about someone without truly knowing them. When it comes to our relationship with God, it is not enough to simply know the facts. In order to live without fear, we need a genuine relationship with God where we are making space in our lives to spend with Him and get to know Him personally.
3. We need to rely on our Savior rather than ourselves.
Katy shares that the word “relied” in 2 Chronicles means to have a complete reliance to the point where if the thing you are relying on fails, there will be complete destruction. When relying on God, we don’t need a backup plan, but to be completely dependent on Him for help, hope and healing.
