Replace Your Fears with Faith


“From such terrible dangers of death He saved us, and will save us; and we have placed our hope in him that He will save us again.” (2 Corinthians 1:10 TEV)

Fear is a choice. God is watching over you. He knows everything you're going through, and He is not afraid of the outcome of any hardship or trial you're facing. If God is not afraid, you do not have to be afraid either. Trust God, and don't give into your fears.

When the Apostle Paul was facing certain death, he said, "This happened so that we should rely, not on ourselves, but only on God, who raises the dead. From such terrible dangers as death, He saved us, and will save us; and we have placed our hope in Him but He will save us again” (2 Corinthians 1:9-10 TEV). Paul had the right perspective. He made the right choice. He replaced his fears with faith.

God's promise to believers is that, no matter what happens, "In all things God works for the good of those who love Him” (Romans 8:28 NIV). It doesn't say “all things are good”, but that all are working together for good.

That means you can stop listening to your fears. There is no difficulty, dilemma, defeat, or disaster in your life that God cannot ultimately use for your good and for His glory. There's no need to fear the future.

Your fears reveal where you do not trust God. Today, make a list of your fears, and ask God to help you identify why you have fear in those areas. Then ask Him to help you replace your fears with faith.
