Ruth Graham, daughter of Billy and Ruth Bell Graham, tackles the fear and uncertainty readers confront when facingdaunting challenges and times of uncertainty. Graham empathizes with readers who feel inadequate, outnumbered, overpowered, ill-equipped, or even beyond hope. She then leads a discovery of the all-sufficiency of God and his power, demonstrating how to replace fears with hope and anticipation.
Graham writes, “If you are hoping to find within these pages ten steps to greater confidence or positive self-talk for conquering anxiety or how to rise above your challenges to reach your destiny, you won’t find what you are looking for here at all. This book is not about overcoming your shortcomings to build a better you. Growing an unshakable trust in God as you face your tomorrows is not about self-improvement or mastering your circumstances, but about God—who he is, what he does, and why we can trust him.”
Graham writes not from an ivory tower of theological discourse, but from the battlefields of brokenness and recovery. From that vantage point she offers evidence that, whether readers’ frightening tomorrows are self-inflicted, other-inflicted, or simply life-inflicted, they may hold fast to the simple yet powerful truth, Fear not tomorrow, God is already there.
Each chapter explores a distinct attribute of God and an illustration from God’s Word demonstrating each attribute at work in the face of daunting challenges. Then Graham unpacks enlightening encounters of God’s presence and power, impacting the lives of everyday people today. Graham weaves a tapestry of the all-sufficiency of God and his power to enfold our todays and tomorrows in his mighty grip.
Readers will catch sight of his power, learn to rest in his peace, and be filled with anticipation for the future. Fear not tomorrow, God is already there!
