Have you ever been so scared that you begun to doubt God?
Have you ever been afraid to fail that test, job interview or exam?
Have you ever been so scared of failure, sickness or perhaps death?
According to the Oxford English Dictionary, fear is a”unpleasant emotion caused by the threat of danger, pain, or harm”. Fear is a pretty normal emotion of the human body but to a Christian, it should be the least of your expressed emotions. Whenever you’re tempted to fear, remember, fear is not in your list of emotions as Christian.
Fear is the devil’s gadget for daily manipulation. The devil threatens us with the possibility of failure, poverty, sickness and death among others to shake our Christian foundation.
Fear can be likened to a chronic disease, the only Cure is Faith.
What is meant by faith, specifically faith in God. To have faith in God is the reassurance that no matter what happens or what doesn’t, He’s got it in control. It’s clearly stated in the Bible,
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. (PhilLipians 4:6)
Not only is Faith in God a remedy to Fear. It’s also an initiative to living a peaceful and fulfilling life. Without faith, you’ll live a monotonous life, one without joy but full of depression and constant fear.
Choose FAITH OVER FEAR and that will be the best decision you’ve ever taken.
TRUST GOD AND HOLD ON!!
