Jentezen Franklin is the senior pastor of Free Chapel, a multi-campus church in Georgia and California, and a best-selling author.
“God does not want us to live in chronic fear. God delights in courageous people who choose faith over fear,” Franklin said. “The most often given commandment in the Bible is ‘Fear not.’ But this command is always coupled with the most often given promise “For I am with you.”
He added, “It’s prayer time in America and the Bible was written for times like these. How do you choose faith over fear? If you want to avoid despair, keep praying, keep trusting God, and keep encouraging one another. Remember, tough times never last, but tough people do.”
