About the Speaker:

Betty Maamari is a proud Christian woman from Lebanon. She has 3 wonderful kids and her eldest is Kurt who is on the Autism Spectrum. Betty has been a grateful disciple for 10 years and her husband came to faith 4 years ago because of the miracles they saw at home with the beloved son, Kurt. Betty is a an advocate for exceptional families in the Middle East and is currently leading the Parent 2 Parent Support Group in Lebanon with the SKILD Center. She is an active person who likes to spread the good news through social media and fun activities to show the world that Church is anything but boring! 

Episode Notes:

Regardless of where you are in the world, fear is a huge battle we face.

“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” -Teddy Roosevelt

Fear leads to failure. It can lead us to sin as we try to grab ahold of things and control that ultimately belong to God. 

The bible says “Do not fear” over 365 times. Over time, it can be easy for us to “talk the talk” of trusting God, without actually living it out. Fear can be crippling. 

Jesus himself experienced fear- God in the flesh experienced fear! 

Fear is not an emotion, it is a spirit that attacks us.

Luke 22:39-46

We need to follow the example of Jesus, and pray MORE earnestly. Jesus Himself had to pray 3 times to overcome the spirit of fear- how much more should we expect to have to continually take our fears to God. 

“God will always meet us where we are at, but He loves us too much to leave us there.”

What we are struggling with is not new. God’s people have always had to battle the spirit of fear. 

Fear clouds our eyes from eternity. We need to pray to see things from God’s perspective.
