I feel this very revelant post written last year should be reposted during these uncertain times. I hope it blesses you today. ❤
I have lived this. Fear. It truly is crippling. Fear is the opposite of faith. When I get afraid, I literally can’t walk, and feel more fatigued.
Here are some powerful verses on fear that God wants us to live by as we face challenging times.
Fear thou not; for I am with thee:
be not dismayed; for I am thy God:
I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee;
yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
With God, truly, all things are possible. Yet He came as a man in the flesh and can empathize with us. He understands our humanity and weakness and prays for us. His power is in those who are in Him and He has not given us a spirit of fear! If we succumb to fear, we cannot watch God’s power displayed in our weakness. We can still put one foot in front of the other and step out in faith, knowing God is with us while strengthening us, and even if we feel afraid, we can face our fears leaning on Him. Our courage comes from God!
