In this audio talk, David Powlison maintains that self-generated fears—panic, anxiety, dread, phobias, terror—are attacks from within. How do we grapple with these intense fears? In a world full of vulnerabilities there are good reasons for fear, but in light of God’s bigger hope there are better reasons for courage, faith and love. David Powlison has 3 goals for his listeners in this talk: 1.) To get a feel for someone’s real-life experience and struggle with extreme fear; 2.) To gain a willingness, and even a confidence, as a helper to enter these deep waters with others; and 3.) To gain a practical sense of direction and understanding as to how you or someone you’re helping can grow and change in this area of fear.
