“Feed your fears and your faith will starve. Feed your faith, and your fears will.”
Max Lucado, Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear
“Can you imagine a life with no fear? What if faith, not fear, was your default reaction to threats?”
Max Lucado, Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear
“Fear creates a form of spiritual amnesia”
Max Lucado, Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear
“Fear never wrote a symphony or poem, negotiated a peace treaty, or cured a disease. Fear never pulled a family out of poverty or a country out of bigotry. Fear never saved a marriage or a business. Courage did that. Faith did that. People who refused to consult or cower to their timidities did that. But fear itself? Fear herds us into a prison and slams the doors. Wouldn’t it be great to walk out?”
Max Lucado, Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear
“Christ-followers contract malaria, bury children & battle addictions & as a result, face fears. Its not the absence of storms that sets us apart. It's whom we discover in the storm; an unstirred Christ.”
Max Lucado, Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear
“The fear-filled cannot love deeply. Love is risky. They cannot give to the poor. Benevolence has no guarantee of return. The fear-filled cannot dream wildly. What if their dreams sputter and fall from the sky? The worship of safety emasculates greatness. No wonder Jesus wages such a war against fear.”
Max Lucado, Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear
“Fear corrodes our confidence in God's goodness. We begin to wonder if love lives in heaven. If God can sleep in our storms, if his eyes stay shut when our eyes grow wide, if he permits storms after we got on his boat, does he care? Fear unleashes a swarm of doubts, anger-stirring doubts. Fear at its center, is a perceived loss of control.”
Max Lucado, Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear
“Fear may fill our world, but it doesn't have to fill our hearts.”
Max Lucado, Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear
“God owns everything and gives us all things to enjoy. He is a good shepherd to us, his little flock. Trust him, not stuff. Move from the fear of scarcity to the comfort of provision. Less hoarding, more sharing. “Do good . . . be rich in good works, ready to give, willing to share.”
Max Lucado, Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear
“Contrary to what we’d hope, good people aren’t exempt from violence. Murderers don’t give the godly a pass. Rapists don’t vet victims according to spiritual résumés. The bloodthirsty and wicked don’t skip over the heavenbound. We aren’t insulated. But neither are we intimidated. Jesus has a word or two about this brutal world: “Do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul” (Matt. 10:28).”

“Christ-followers contract malaria, bury children, and battle addictions, and, as a result, face fears. It’s not the absence of storms that sets us apart. It’s whom we discover in the storm: an unstirred Christ.”

“I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid. —JOHN 14: 27 NLT”
Max Lucado, Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear
“The step between prudence and paranoia is short and steep. Prudence wears a seat belt. Paranoia avoids cars. Prudence washes with soap. Paranoia avoids human contact. Prudence saves for old age. Paranoia hoards even trash. Prudence prepares and plans. Paranoia panics. Prudence calculates the risk and takes the plunge. Paranoia never enters the water.”
Max Lucado, Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear
“We can take our parenting fears to Christ. In fact, if we don’t, we’ll take our fears out on our kids. Fear turns some parents into paranoid prison guards who monitor every minute, check the background of every friend. They stifle growth and communicate distrust. A family with no breathing room suffocates a child. On the other hand, fear can also create permissive parents. For fear that their child will feel too confined or fenced in, they lower all boundaries. High on hugs and low on discipline. They don’t realize that appropriate discipline is an expression of love. Permissive parents. Paranoid parents. How can we avoid the extremes? We pray.”
Max Lucado, Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear
“Fear of insignificance creates the result it dreads, arrives at the destination it tries to avoid, facilitates the scenario it disdains.”
Max Lucado, Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear
“The parched soil of fear needs steady rain.”
Max Lucado, Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear
“Feed your fears, and your faith will starve. Feed your faith, and your fears will.”
Max Lucado, Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear
“Embrace it. Accept it. Don’t resist it. Change is not only a part of life; change is a necessary part of God’s strategy. To use us to change the world, he alters our assignments. Gideon: from farmer to general; Mary: from peasant girl to the mother of Christ; Paul: from local rabbi to world evangelist. God transitioned Joseph from a baby brother to an Egyptian prince. He changed David from a shepherd to a king. Peter wanted to fish the Sea of Galilee. God called him to lead the first church. God makes reassignments.”
Max Lucado, Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear
“consequence free.”
Max Lucado, Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear
“Fear, at its center, is a perceived loss of control. When life spins wildly, we grab for a component of life we can manage: our diet, the tidiness of a house, the armrest of a plane, or, in many cases, people. The more insecure we feel, the meaner we become.”
Max Lucado, Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear
