Fear Or Faith - Which Rules You?
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity (of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear), but He has given us a spirit of power and of love and of calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control (2 Timothy 1:7 – Amplified).
A fear based life is an unsettled life. What’s going to happen in my future, in my home, in my travels, in my body, in my finances? A faith based life expects God to act in every circumstance and situation that life brings.
A fear based life is based on feelings and circumstances. A faith based life is a life that is lived by the Word of God! What God says settles everything to the faith based life. A calmness, a rest, a hope, a security, and great joy accompanies the faith based life. Depression, gloom, irritability, dread, hopelessness, and tiredness accompany the fear based life.
Make the switch today to be a person who lives by Word of God based on faith and not by fear based sight! Each day will become an adventure as you and the Father go through the day talking with one another, strategizing with His Word about the details of what you’re doing. Faith based living does not consult with the flesh, circumstances or opinion. Thus says the Lord rules the faith based life.
Fear attracts satanic activity, and draws a person into difficulty. The fear of man brings a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord shall be safe (Proverbs 29:25). Job ascribed his troubles to his fear that opened the door for the enemy to attack him. For the thing I greatly feared has come upon me, and what I dreaded has happened to me (Job 3:25).
Don’t allow fear to rule your life. Instead, fill yourself with the Word. Ask yourself what the Word of God says about every area of life. Say out loud exactly what God's Word says about your particular situation. Say it over and over. God's Word spoken. out loud can cancel the fear thoughts and the fear emotions. Refuse fear and the emotional baggage it brings. Lift your hands, praise God, and declare the Lordship of His Word over your life! Speak the Word and run fear out of your life today!
