The word says in Hebrews 11:6 that without faith it is impossible to please God. Many times we face daily situations that cause us fear. We have all experienced fear. However, the word tells us that perfect love casts out fear. So we have a way to replace fear with faith. A faith that pleases God. Let’s walk this journey!
How to replace fear with faith in your life
Las week I started reading a book called “Women Who Move Mountains” by Sue Detweiler. An excellent book, which while reading it, it was confronting my inner being. Many questions began to emerge from me about my faith, my fears, and where my confidence in the difficult moments was really grounded.
In one of the chapters she shares that whenever we make the decision to trust God fully, it is when we change or replace our fear with faith. Not only in some moment or situations, but everyday!
The Dictionary of Bible Themes defines faith as:
A constant outlook of trust towards God, whereby human beings abandon all reliance on their own efforts and put their full confidence in him, his word and his promises.
Our moments of greatest fear may be the opportunities for God to manifest His power and His glory in us and for our faith to be strengthened and to take root in God alone. We can not overcome fear if we trust in ourselves or in man. We can only replace fear by relying fully on God’s promises, provision, and care for us.
Praying is a key for replacing fear with faith
Each time you feel fear in a situation, pray to God confidently knowing that He will give you a solution to your problem. But you must trust in his provision. Remember that God has full knowledge of your past, present and future and knows what is best for you. In this way we can place our trust in the one who knows everything about us and sees the path we are going to follow first than ourselves.
