“The key ingredient to overcoming fear is not just speaking to it, it’s speaking to it in Jesus’ name.”
This quote sets the frame for the latest release from Sadie Robertson. Don’t let the fact that Robertson is young or that the book is geared toward the YA audience deter you in any way from reading this encouraging book. The information is useful for anyone or any age.
Robertson displays a vulnerability as she shares a number of personal stories mixed with Biblical truths to explain how she overcame her fears and why she believes anyone can do the same thing. It’s possible to live a live of power, passion, and purpose (the life God created for you).
There are a number of activities included to put the tips into action. Each chapter includes the following: questions, challenges, scripture verses, prayers, and journaling opportunities. (Warning: some questions require a bit of soul searching first. They may be difficult or unpleasant, but they’re necessary to move beyond fear.)
If you or someone you know struggles with fear, this is certainly a book to check out.
Some of my favorite quotes:
- “If you fear anything other than God, you’re giving it too much power in your life.” (Sadie’s mom)
- “The enemy is afraid of your becoming everything God wants you to be.”
- “Faith and fear both involve belief, and they both involve believing things we cannot see.”
