When we read certain passages in Scripture telling us not to worry or to be anxious, we may assume courageous faith should come easily. We may think, if only we say the right prayer, recite a particular verse enough times, or muster up enough will power, we’ll find victory over anxiety and fear. And while God does have the power to flood our souls with supernatural peace, most often, He slowly and progressively displaces our anxiety with peace. In this episode, Jennifer Slattery shares concrete steps we can take and powerful truths we can stand on to build, through the power of Christ, a faith that stands—and withstands life’s storms.
