When Fear Is In Control, Faith Is On Hold … It’s A Clear Choice And It Is Ours To Make!

The scriptures are full of pairings of opposites.

Among the many that could be considered, here are three classic examples that all of you will recognize … heaven or hell, light or darkness, truth or error.

Well-known right?

The intent of these pairings is to take away any confusion when it comes to making critical choices … and to provide clarity as to what happens in the process.

When one sees the stark contrast in the opposites, there is no doubt in knowing that one would have to make an intentional choice between the two.

The process is uncomplicated and obvious.

Additionally, it is quite clear that an executed choice intends to embrace the one that has been chosen and to eliminate the other.

When we choose to honor God with our choice, we also help ourselves … it’s a serious win-win for us! However, if we choose to do what would dishonor the Lord, then we ourselves will be devoured.

This process is precise in how it works and there is no ambiguity here … none at all!

You get what you choose!

This is a reality that we need to take on … and let’s think about it in light of this pairing …

There are so many moments in the scriptures where this epic battle plays out. From Genesis 22 until Revelation 21 we see endless tension between fear and faith.

All of us have our favorite biblical account that speaks to fear being overcome by faith and we have our favorite “fear-extinguishing” verses as well.

My favorite is John 14:27, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”

There are plenty of things to fear … and it seems that we manage to keep adding to the list!

Wherever fear is increasing, we can be certain that … faith is diminishing!

Knowing this, matters … but making this happen is what really changes things!

Fear will never surrender to anything except faith. Once we choose faith, fear is gone … and we are free to experience God fully and to receive from Him, all that He has provided.

We move from weakness to strength … fear is gone and our faith is alive!

Here is what we know …

▪ We don’t want to linger in this position
▪ In stepping away we are stepping in
▪ We do want to take this on!

Now is the time to do all of this … there is no better moment!

I am in for sure … and you?

Come on … let’s do this
