There’s no denying we’re going through some tumultuous times. The stock market looks like a twisted roller coaster ride, people are fighting over toiletries, unemployment is rising, everyone is self-quarantining, social distancing is the new norm, and worry is reigning supreme.
Because of this pandemic, people are experiencing uncertainty on a world-wide scale. Never in my lifetime did I imagine I would see what’s happening now. The level of fear and anxiety is so high that it’s leading many to do very irrational things. Men! Now more than ever, we’re called to be warriors, not worriers.
Let’s look at the six characteristics of a warrior.
Scripture tells us that we find hope and strength in knowing God fulfills his promises. He promises to be with us through trials and fire.
The reason we go through these trials and troubles is because he’s working to strengthen our faith into something powerful. He’s focused on the future and in the process telling us we are warriors and not to be worriers.
Read 1 Peter 1:6-7 for yourself. Meditate on it, memorize it. Do whatever it takes until it sinks in. What do these verses say to you?
How do you handle worry and fear? Journal the journey. Be real. Be honest. be vulnerable.
Determine how you will handle worry and fear. After you complete this go out and share this with fellow brother. Teach what you’ve learned and have them hold you accountable.
