Thriving in Babylon- Week 6- Finding Faith Out of Fear
Thriving in Babylon challenges us to hope in God and strive to live in a unique way, even compared to other religious people. In what appears to be an increasingly godless society, we are called to live as people of hope, humility, and wisdom. Though Daniel lived thousands of years ago, he has much to teach us today.

“2:01 AM January 1, 2000: Your electricity goes off. Phones aren't working. The computer at your local bank crashes. Police and 911 are nowhere to be found.... Social security checks will stop coming. Planes...will be grounded. Credit card charges will be rejected. Military defense systems will fail.... The Federal Reserve will be unable to clear checks...your employer will go out of business."
- Michael Hyatt
Too often, the stories of Scripture elicit shame because we are so fearful when these men and women appear so courageous.
These stories are inspiring because they are a testament to the truth that your fears don’t have to rule you!
The beauty of the stories of Scripture is that it paints of picture of faith in the face of fear, not the denial of it!
Daniel, Moses, David, Abraham, men who we venerate for their faith were set apart not because they faced no fears, but because they trusted in spite of their fears.

Though their fears were great, though their adversaries were formidable, though their risks were significant, through their situations were insurmountable, their God was bigger!

The activating event that changed history happened when a terrified group of men and women discovered the power of the God they served!
And if Jesus was alive, it changed everything! Because if not even death could hold Jesus, then what could hold them?
"You see, you have not received a spirit that returns you to slavery, so you have nothing to fear. The Spirit you have received adopts you and welcomes you into God’s own family."
- Romans 8:15 (The Voice Bible)
We take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ!
Instead, confront those fears with the truth that they are nothing compared to your God. And choose to trust. Choose to believe.
