MacDonald, James (Author)
James MacDonald presents the theological foundation for understanding and appropriating the promises God has given in His Word. He discusses these truths: God makes promises, God keeps His promises, God wants us to test His promises, God's promises are activated by faith, and God's promises are experienced in Jesus Christ.
Defining fear as the complete state of anti-God, James MacDonald offers the unfailing promise of God's presence as the antidote to fear in a believer's life. God will never leave or forsake His children, and His Son intercedes for us at His throne.
James MacDonald challenges believers to trust in the Lord instead of doubting. Because God is sovereign over the universe, over humanity, over the moral universe, and over history, we can seek refuge in Him when we go through trials. We can depend on Him to bring about His purposes for our lives.
Even believers can find themselves trapped in the cave of despair. James MacDonald reminds viewers that God is working out His good purposes for our lives to give us a future and a hope. If we trust in His promises, we will see expressions of His goodness even in our struggles.
James MacDonald teaches that God is attentive to His own; He watches our lives with compassion and for our benefit. When we go through the fire, He promises to carry us through and to lead us toward His good plan for our lives. He knows our weaknesses and will not allow more to be placed on us than we can bear.
We all live with a certain amount of uncertainty, but God's promises assure us that He will win in the end. James MacDonald declares that nothing used against us in this world will triumph. The Lord fights for us, and His victory gives believers an eternal perspective that reassures us when we face hardship.
