Bible Verse : When I am afraid, I will trust in you. Psalms 56:3
Thought Of The Day : The reign of fear in your life is the beginning of doom for you.
LISTEN : Faith conquers fear. Yes, faith drives away fear, just as fear drives away faith. Beloved, never permit fear to dwell in your heart (John 14:1). The reign of fear in your life is the beginning of doom for you. (1John 4:18-20). My dear, be prepared to fight fear through faith, or be prepared to fall through fear. He who can’t fight fear will be defeated by same. As a matter of fact, you won’t cease to be afraid of circumstances of life until you are ready to put your trust in the only true God. Faith in God is the antidote to fear. In the midst of situations that threatens your peace and joy, and possibly your life, faith in God can keep you courageous, strong and hopeful. Don’t forget that, you can’t end your fears until you’re prepared to grow your faith. Fear will end when faith grows. Faith has the power to kill your fears. George Muller, a Christian Evangelist said, “The beginning of anxiety is the end of faith, and the beginning of true faith is the end of anxiety.” Beloved, are you afraid? Have you ceased to trust in God? Has fear eaten deep into your heart? Please wake up! Don’t be a slave to fear when you can gain your freedom through faith. The choice is yours. Grow your faith and overcome your fears, or grow in fear and lose your faith and life. So, determine to grow your faith. Remember, faith overcomes fear. Be wise!
