Scripture Emphasis:

Ps 29:11 “The Lord gives strength to his people; the Lord blesses his people with peace.”

Last week we saw Gideon’s frailty in distressing times.  We learned about the Anatomy of Fear.  It comes from when our circumstances seem INSURMOUNTABLE, when our abilities seem INSUFFICIENT and when our God seems UNINTERESTED.  The first two are legit.  However, the last one is false.  God is never uninterested in your life.  Today we see how God brings peace amidst the most difficult times in our lives.
