Where Is Your Biggest Investment?

by Hazel Straub

Faith or fear 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 dominate our lives.

In the natural, tests come and due to a failure, we 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 our needs. Fear causes us to become self-absorbed and filled with pride, which ruins relationships and causes us to run from difficulty.

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 grant strength. God gives us new beginnings, is faithful and supernaturally provides for us. Turn to God, who is our help and strength and never fails. 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)

  2. President Roosevelt once stated that the only fear we have to fear is fear itself. I wonder if he also was thinking of the trust in God which gives strength to overcome the crippling power of fear.

  4. Such a good post! I have seen it when fear was evident in my life, and I would get caught up in my own head and not see God. I love the perspective shift choosing to think what can I learn from this. So good!

  8. “What can I learn from this?” the right question in every situation. It took me a long time to ask such wise question. Now the Lord is teaching me through every situation. I am learning His ways more.
