PIPER FRIDAY – John Piper's Biblical Antidote to Fear

This Piper Friday I would like to share some reasons Piper gives us why we need not be afraid. The original article has biblical verses to support each of these glorious truths from God’s Word. Here are his statements:

  • John PiperWe will not die apart from God’s gracious decree for his children.
  • Curses and divination do not hold sway against God’s people.
  • The plans of terrorists and hostile nations do not succeed apart from our gracious God.
  • Man cannot harm us beyond God’s gracious will for us.
  • God promises to protect his own from all that is not finally good for them.
  • God promises to give us all we need to obey, enjoy, and honor him forever.
  • God is never taken off guard.
  • God will be with us, help us, and uphold us in trouble.
  • Terrors will come, some of us will die, but not a hair of our heads will perish.
  • Nothing befalls God’s own but in its appointed hour.
  • When God Almighty is your helper, none can harm you beyond what he decrees.
  • God’s faithfulness is based on the firm value of his name, not the fickle measure of our obedience.
  • The Lord, our protector, is great and awesome.
