Written in a lively rhyme, I Will Not Be Afraid addresses children's fears — such as the dark, storms, and current events — and explains that God is in full control as He promises to work good through all circumstances in the lives of His children.
I Will Not Be Afraid does not describe a God who whisks away all difficult, frightening, or bad things. Rather it portrays our all-powerful, loving God who is faithful to us because of Jesus' sacrifice and forgiveness. Children learn that while bad things happen in our sinful world, God will always guide them and give them comfort in His Word. They are encouraged to remember Scripture verses and to pray when they are afraid.
Bright and colorful artwork pairs with comforting words to assure children that God is strong and trustworthy. Ideal for home, school, church, and homeschool. Originally published in 2008 and now available in a convenient paperback format. Ideal for children five years and older.
