Kenny is a 42 year old small company director who lives with his wife and 2 children. Kenny can be described by his employees as focused, hardworking and diligent. He is usually the first to arrive at work and the last to leave. Kenny started his contracting business about 5 years ago, 6 months after he gave his life to Christ and became a born again Christian.
During that period, Kenny had recently lost his job working for a successful construction company after been made redundant and spent several months looking for work. His epiphany to start his own business came one day during his personal devotion with God and he got a very clear scripture which is now engraved above the door of his office to go ahead with the venture.
However things have not been easy for Kenny, it has been an uphill struggle. After 5 years of trading and hard work, Kenny is still struggling to pay his bills and feed his family. The recent economic recession has made things even more difficult; Kenny has lost a lot of money resulting in an accumulation of debt. To make matters worse, Kenny’s faith in God is wavering under the pressure and immense fear has taken its place.
Kenny has been praying and fasting almost every 3 months for the last 2 years for his breakthrough to come. Each time God gives him new scriptures which confirm that his business is definitely ordained by God and a key to his success. Kenny has increased his giving at church and faithfulness to obedience to God’s specific instructions in His life.
Despite this, Kenny cannot help but feel that God is taking him for a ride. Kenny is afraid that all his hard work will amount to nothing. He is afraid that God will not answer his prayers and perhaps he has sinned somewhere along the way and God is trying to teach him a lesson. Although Kenny does not want to, he cannot help but feel that God is at the root of his misfortunes. After all, even if He did not orchestrate it, He sure is not doing much to prevent it. Kenny knows the more his anxiety takes over him, the less faith he has. However he is disillusioned with God because God has not fulfilled his expectations. Right now, Kenny is afraid that God might not even be able to meet his most simple needs.
Kenny is not the only person struggling with the fear that God will not come through for them. Many are experiencing the same anxieties daily and can receive renewed confidence in God from my book ‘Fear No More; Finding Total Freedom from Fear in Christ’ like Kenny.
The book, Fear No More will inform Kenny of who he is in Christ and how God’s love for him has no bounds or limits
- It will show him the origin of fear in the Garden of Eden and why in the beginning, there was no economic crisis or disaster
- It will teach him that because he is in Christ, he must give full control of his life to God and accept His sovereignty
- It will teach him how to hold onto the Promises of God on his road to success
- It will empower and infuse him with the God-confidence that he needs to continue with his God-given vision
- It will guide him step by step in how to obtain freedom from fear for himself by renewing his mind with the word of God
After reading my book, ‘Fear No More; Finding Total Freedom from Fear in Christ’, Kenny will never be the same again.
