Dr David Jeremiah’s newest book “Living With Confidence in a Chaotic World” has a very timely message. All of us are touched in some way by the things that are happening in our world and he has words of encouragement for staying confident. Dr Jeremiah encourages the reader to remember that no matter what we are going through “we have a direct line to the One Who knows what happens on the next page….because He wrote the whole story!” That’s a tremendous encouragement in times like these. He quotes Colossians 3:3 …”and your life is hidden with Christ in God.” There is no more secure place to be!

Dr Jeremiah gives us 10 chapters that deal with things that we can do to live with confidence….Stay Calm, Stay Compassionate, Stay Constructive, Stay Challenged, Stay Connected, Stay Centered, Stay Confident, Say Consistent, Stay Committed, and Stay Convinced. He delves in to each of these areas with Biblical wisdom. In the Chapter “Stay Committed” he talks about keeping our focus on Jesus during troubling times. We need to focus on His connection to us, His control over everything that concerns us, His care for us, and His commitment to us.

So if you or a loved one are suffering through tough times and are wondering what to do, read this book and allow Dr. Jeremiah to lead you to God’s word for your answers.
