How to Be Up When You're Down

Jill Briscoe

Have you been wounded and find it hard get back up to fight another day? 

Few of us can imagine the fear and the exhaustion of a soldier's life, living in a war zone day after day. Yet, we live in a war zone of our own... a spiritual battle between good and evil.  

In Jill's series, she gives you practical teaching on how to stay strong and courageous in the midst of the spiritual battle being waged around you by following the example of Joshua. 

  • Preparing for the battle: Knowing the enemy's tactics, but also knowing the war has already been won by God!
  • Keeping your faith burning: How living and learning Scripture can keep your faith vibrant on any battlefield
  • Being courageous when frightened: Why being obedient even when frightened brings victory
  • Winning the worry war: Trusting God with tomorrow

  1. 3. Standing in Moses' Sandals

    Jill Briscoe

    We all can remember a time in our lives when we felt inadequate for something—parenting, a new job, or an unexpected life event. It's during these times that we can't help but think, "I can't do this."

    In this message, Jill teaches us how we can follow God's will for our lives by not only saying, "I can," but also saying, "I will." 

    Jill tells the story about Stuart, at the age of 17, being asked to teach about the Church at Ephesus.

    Scripture:  Joshua 1

  2. 5. Winning the Worry War

    Jill Briscoe

    Jill Briscoe will freely admit that even as a Christian, she struggles with worry—and she's not alone. Battling against worry and reclaiming the energy and abundant life that worry steals from us is a daily battle for so many people. Are you ready to learn how to rule worrisome situations and not be ruled by them?

    In this message, Jill shares the turning point in her life when she finally felt the worry war pivot in her favor—and it had a lot to do with studying the story of Joshua and the battle of Jericho.

    Scripture:  Joshua 1:6 - 1:11 , Joshua 1:6 - 1:11

  3. 6. Sin in the Camp

    Jill Briscoe

    Have you ever noticed how kids try to hide things they've done wrong—a broken family heirloom, a bad report card, or a dent in the car? As much as he or she tries to hide the mistake, most often the parents find out. The same is true of our sin. As much as we try to bury our sin, God always knows about it. But how do we confront it?

    In this message by Jill, she teaches us what to do with sin so that we can make God the true ruler of our lives.

    Scripture:  Joshua 6
