Definition of FAITH - Complete trust or confidence in someone or something
Definition of fear - An unpleasant emotional caused by the threat of danger, pain, or harm
Two words were running around in my head this morning "fear or faith". It is sad to see how many people are living in a state of fear since Covid-19. Fear paralyses Faith.
Faith over fear doesn't mean that you don't feel afraid, it means that you will not let your fear consume you or your actions.
Faith over fear really just means that, despite what is going on; with God's help we will get through this season and our trust in God will be deeper and our faith will be stronger.
Most of what we fear is simply - false evidence appearing to be real.
Psalm 56:3-4 When I am afraid, I put my trust in You Lord. In God, whose Word I praise. in God I trust; I shall not be afraid. What can flesh do to me?
Isaiah 43: 1 Don't fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are Mine.
Psalm 18:2 The LORD is my rock , my fortress and my deliverer.
