Choose faith over fear, whatever you are going thru!

Faith over fear

Ever heard the saying “fear not, just believe”? Jesus was calling us to faith over fear! When fear tries to paralyze you, focus on God who is bigger, and choose to move forward in faith! Let’s not grow weary in doing good works out of fear but instead complete the good works God has given to do in faith!

Today’s Verse of the Day:

Even though I walk through the [sunless] valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod [to protect] and Your staff [to guide], they comfort and console me.

Psalms 23:4 AMP

Faith in the light over fear of the darkness

Firstly, even though we can’t see the sun, it doesn’t mean it isn’t there – faith over fear! Secondly, the greater the shadow the brighter the light – faith over fear! Thirdly, trust in God who is with us rather than fear of what is in the world – faith over fear! Fourthly, protection of God and guidance of God will help us get through it – faith over fear! Finally, allowing God’s protection and guidance to comfort and console us – faith over fear!
