Some people like to be frightened, and they enjoy watching horror movies or reading scary stories. Maybe it’s because they know the scenarios are not real and they feel safe and relieved after the faux fright.
Halloween is our most traditional fright night – a time when children (and adults) dress up and pretend to be someone else for a while.
Tonight, trick-or-treaters will fill our neighborhoods, cashing in on community candy.
There may be a few frightening faces roaming our streets this evening, but in our day-to-day lives, we all deal with plenty of real-life intimidation.
A young Old Testament prophet named Jeremiah wasn’t too excited about his godly call to challenge the status quo, and called “foul,” claiming to be underage.
God told him that age had nothing to do with obedience, and gave Jeremiah a promise we can all claim when facing a task to which He has called us:
Do not be afraid of their faces,
for I am with you to deliver you,” says the Lord.
Can you recall an intimidating situation that God brought you through? I’d love to hear what He did in your life.
This Christmas, give the joy of reading Christian fiction!
