Living with Confidence in a Chaotic World by Dr. David Jeremiah

Earthquakes, tsunamis, nuclear radiation leaks...

Floods, tornadoes, wrecks, deaths, stillborn babies...

Financial turmoil, wars, suicide bombers...

Is our world chaotic?

Can we live with

Dr. David Jeremiah very clearly lays out a tried and true plan for us of how we truly can in his book Living with Confidence in a Chaotic World.  Dr. Jeremiah blankets us with rich biblical direction, encouragement, and inspiration as he walks us through ten specific ways to remain confident among the apparent chaos.

As the chapters are titled, he guides us in how to stay: calm, compassionate, constructive, challenged, connected, centered, confident, consistent, committed, and convinced as we maneuver through the war zone that is our current world.

As Dr. Jeremiah states, "In chaotic times, the battle rages wildly.  More than ever we need to strap on that armor (the armor of light - walking in fellowship with God); more than ever we need to know our allies from our enemies.  A soldier may stand on the wall, but he never sits on the fence."  (italics mine added for clarification based on book content)

Are you on the fence---or on the wall?

As Dr. Jeremiah also states, "Now, in the fourth chapter (of 2nd Timothy), Paul tells Timothy that it's not enough to just acknowledge what is right, he must announce what is right.  He must preach this truth!"

So, again I ask, are you on the fence---or on the wall?

To Not Decide...Is to Decide!

Heavily directed at Christians though inviting, intriguing, and encouraging for anyone to read, Living with Confidence in a Chaotic World gives biblical and spiritual ammo to the soul.  Dr. Jeremiah helps to renew our minds, our hearts, and our resolve as we face these days of ever-increasing confusion, doubt, and difficulty.

I leave you with one last nugget from the book:

"If you remember the Bible's warnings---that the Bible and the faith will come under increasing attacks as we get closer to the return of Jesus Christ---you will not cower in fear when skeptics raise their voices.  Whether they are comedians who try to soften your defenses with humor, scholars who try to overwhelm your beliefs with intellectual arguments, or religious leaders who try to convince you that the Bible is just a book, you will be ready.  You will remember that 'the grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever' (Isaiah 40:8).
Are you living with confidence or cowardice?

Are you on the fence or on the wall?

The time to decide to stand is now.

The day of salvation 
and of spreading the good news of saving grace is TODAY!
