Faith vs Fear

“The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭121:8‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Sometimes we catch ourselves becoming a victim of the fear mentality that surrounds us. The spirit of fear invades our peace and we panic spiritually. All around us we see people reacting to to the pandemic either in foolishness or in fear! Without stopping to acknowledge God, seek His direction, we do whatever we see others do. And that’s not Wisdom. 

in this Psalm, the writer encourages us that we can and should always look to God because He is our Source, our Help and our Strength!

 We can find a place in Him of mental strength through faith. This strength comes from a faith created by committed meditation, prayer and consecration through the power of Holy Spirit!

Moving forward may not be easy right now, but if it was easy, everybody could do it! Jesus said that all things were possible to them that believe… He didn’t say that it was easy. He said that the discipleship process was hard. He said to take up your cross daily and follow Him. He told us to deny ourselves and love God with all our hearts, souls, mind and strength. Wow! A lot goes into saving faith, but it will drive out the sneaky power of fear. So walk in faith, live by faith and don’t allow the spirit of fear to rule your decisions. 

Wisdom is the principle thing, therefore get wisdom. But with all your getting, get understanding! Use Wisdom, understand what you’re dealing with. Search for truth, seek for accurate and correct answers. Ask questions and pray for guidance. God is right there, a very present help. 

 Stay away from danger, use adequate precautions. Read Romans 13:1-7

“Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake. For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God’s ministers, attending continually upon this very thing. Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭13:1-7‬ ‭KJV‬‬
