WHEN THE STORMS of life threaten to knock us off course, God doesn’t want us to cower in fear. God wants us to spring to life, the abundant life Christ came to give us. But the abundant life cannot be lived in confinement; it needs room to roam. Emboldened by the truth and secure in the love and acceptance of Christ, we can venture into life’s wilderness free of fear and “confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus” (Phil. 1:6).
