Do you need encouragement right about now? Are you feeling anxious and uncertain? Do you find yourself in a season of isolation as events cancel, schools shift online, and even churches need to close their doors to large gatherings?
I know I could use some peace during these chaotic times. When I need to stay calm, I turn to this Scripture: “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Phil. 4:6-7, NIV).
If you need help finding peace that transcends all understanding, I would like to invite you to join me for a special Facebook Live series we’re calling “Online Church.”
We know that many will be unable to worship with their local congregation, either because of the need to remain at home, or because their church is taking a hiatus from regular gathering. Or maybe you just need some extra support from a community of faith from around the world. We’ll meet online, via Facebook Live at 8:30 am Central on Sunday, March 15, for a few minutes of prayer and encouragement, and will continue for the next several Sundays. Join us and invite others as well at: www.facebook.com/maxlucado
As we spend time together over the next few Sundays, we can encourage one another to recognize that these times are tough, but God is tougher. These challenges are great, but God is greater.
Let us cast our worries on the Savior and Sustainer of our lives.
