Fear includes worry. We worry about our kids, our relationships, our finances, or any number of things, we are living in fear. And it can be paralyzing.
Fear displaces our faith. Faith is the assurance of God’s ability to help and strengthen us, giving us spiritual wisdom. When fear displaces our faith, we find it hard to believe that our God can do the impossible.
When faith displaces fear. We take each fear to God, trusting Him to be our help and our strength. His peace comes in. It doesn’t mean our problems all fade into the distance. It does mean, however, that we will have the strength we need to face every challenge. It also means we can expect God to work within our circumstances in unexpected ways. It means we can be more than just survivors — we can be overcomers. Hallelujah!
Today the feeling of fear in the face of the unknown is normal. Yet God tells us we can live beyond that and let our faith extinguish our fear. Whatever is worrying or plaguing your mind and heart identify the fear. Then invite God to help you lift the shield of faith to extinguish that fear in Jesus’s name. He is able and He will do it!
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7 (NKJV)
Yahweh, I thank You that You are more powerful than any of my circumstances. Father, increase my faith and extinguish the fear that threatens to sap strength from my soul in Jesus’ name! God, please help me to stay focused on You and not my fear. I lift my shield of faith. In the name of Jesus, amen.
