Defeating Anxiety In Dark Days: Encouragement From God's Word
1. The Struggle Behind Every Dream
A lot of people have dreams for their future, but they never do anything about their dreams. Why is that? In this message, Pastor Rick Warren continues our spiritual growth campaign, Time to Dream, by talking about “the struggle” — four phases God takes us through to get us ready for his dream.
2. The God of My Valleys
Much like a hiking trail, our lives are filled with peaks and valleys, highs and lows that are unavoidable. But even in our darkest valleys, God is there with us, guiding us down the right path and teaching us along the way. In this message Pastor Rick discusses what the Bible says about the valleys of life. You’ll learn the four kinds of valleys we all encounter and how to walk through them with confidence.
3. Letting God Meet My Needs
What’s causing you to worry? More than anything, worry affects your health, relationships, and overall well-being. But God says you don’t have to worry — he promises to meet all your needs if you trust him. So, how do you do that? In this message Pastor Rick shares the four things you need to do to let go of worry in your life. You’ll learn how to overcome your stress and trust God in all circumstances. This is the perfect message for anyone feeling anxious and looking for peace.
4. Defeating Discouragement
Discouragement can be debilitating. It can cause you to give up trying, give up hoping, and give up caring. The Bible has a lot to say about it, and in this message Pastor Rick will talk about how to rethink the things that discourage you.
5. God’s Grace is for Every Race
God loves color. By taking a look at creation we get a glimpse of God’s creativity and passion for color and diversity. And, he wants his church to reflect that diversity as well. In this message Pastor Rick teaches this powerful and timely message on the value of diversity and how each of us can promote reconciliation. We learn why God hates racial prejudice, what we can do to equip yourself to view others as God views them, and how to break down racial barriers in our community.
6. How to Pray In a Crisis
It’s easy to be discouraged these days — political hostility, racial tension, and world violence dominate the news. But no matter what happens, it’s important to remember that God is always in control. Pastor Rick teaches us how to pray the kind of prayer that God answers. He teaches the six steps modeled in Daniel 9 that we can take in our relationship with God, and he challenges us to get more serious and consistent in our prayers.
7. Is God Really Good All the Time?
If you’ve been around church at all, you’ve heard pastors say, “God is good all the time.” But is that really true? In this message at Saddleback Church, Pastor Rick Warren discusses what happens when you forget the goodness of God. You’ll discover nine things God does in your life when you focus on his goodness and learn how to lower your stress as a result.
8. Caring For the Sick
Pastor Rick and his wife Kay inspire us to take on the global giant of pandemic disease in this message. They show us that it is our response to illness that matters and they teach seven practical ways that we can love and care for the sick as Jesus did.
9. How to Be Certain You’re Going to Heaven
The good news is that God wants us to know for certain, without a single doubt, that we are going to heaven when we die. Pastor Rick answers the question, how can we be certain were going to heaven, by looking at four steps learned from John 3:16.
