Fear Or Faith In God

Camas Prairie at Sunset, Idaho, USAby Hazel Straub

Fear or faith develops where we make the biggest investment. When we believe a negative word, fear grabs and pulls us down. Our faith and trust in God must grow bigger than fear.

In the natural, we have tests and due to a failure, think that devastation is our portion. We have to decide if we will exist in the ruins or turn to God and grab hold of him and his promises. One failure does not have to ruin the rest of our lives. The choice is life or death. Live with the fear of lack or choose to trust that God will provide for all of our needs. Fear causes us to become self-absorbed, which ruins relationships and causes us to run from difficulty because the natural circumstances seem difficult.

Remain where God placed you. Rather than thinking, “How can I get out of this?” Choose to think, “What can I learn from this?” Fear robs us of peace but faith and trust in God strengthens us. God gives us new beginnings, is faithful and supernaturally provides for us. Turn to God who is your help and strength and never fails you. Believe, trust and have faith in God not the circumstances. He is your shield and blessing.

Later Yahweh spoke his word to Abram in a vision. He said,
“Abram, don’t be afraid.
I am your shield.
Your reward will be very great.” (Genesis 15:1 NOG)

    • Agreed, the enemy rules by fear. We have to choose life (Jesus) or death (fear and the enemy of our souls). Praise God that Jesus conquered the enemy and gives us life!


  5. This was ‘water’ to a thirsty soul…words of encouragement during a difficult time. A wounded heart…that keeps on loving, and forgiving and believing, sometimes the struggle is overwhelming and words pierce the heart…but God is always and has always been faithful. “Don’t be afraid. I am your shield. Your reward will be very great.” I’m holding on to that…Thank you for your post, I am reblogging.


    • We all need water and encouragement. So good to know God used this post to minister to you, Karen. Your reblog is appreciated. Blessings!
