Is it easier to succumb to fear, than to stand out in faith? Do we surrender to fear because it is familiar? Does it somehow feel less ominous? Let us step out in faith, not fear. Fear is a trap, that keeps us from the blessings the Lord wants to bestow upon us each and every day! by Susan
Psalm 27:1 (NIV) The Lord is my light and my salvation—whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid?
Isaiah 41:10 (NIV) So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
“Fear is a predator. It crouches in the shadows and stalks it’s prey, you, waiting for any sign of weakness or vulnerability on your part. When fear strikes, it can ravage you life. It is a fierce and deadly enemy. Fear can rob you of family and relationships, destroy your talent, and wipe out your resources. God has given you faith, which is a mighty sword with which to fight the predator fear. Faith protects you from fear’s torment and allows you to face each new day with hope and confidence. Faith free’s you to tackle the real obstacles in your life rather than to waste your energies dealing with difficulties that might never materialize. Your faith in God gives you the courage to face fear and drive it away.Thank you God for the gift of faith that brings me hope and drives fear away. Amen.” Written by Bethany House “Moments of Peace in the Presence of God”
