March 17 – April 14
As the Israelites approached Jericho after 40 years in the desert, one problem remained: giants roamed the land, and terrified the people. It would take courage, and trust in God, to defeat them and finally reach the Promised Land.
What was true then is true today. Our giants attack in the forms of anxiety and depression, shame and guilt, debt and scarcity, arrogance and pride. The film Gladiator declared, “together we live, alone we are defeated”—and for 5 weeks we’ll fight these giants together, choosing courage over fear, with a God who promises victory.
