Faith over Fear

Faith over Fear

We were not created to have fear, did you know that (2Tim 1:7)? In this video I do a quick run though of the first 30 chapters of Genesis and some of the times that they were afraid and ended up making bad decisions. Now the good news is that God saved them from themselves! But the bad decisions still had rippling effects. When we are afraid that God forgot about us or that we are running out of time, and we take action, we are acting out of a lack of faith and letting our anxiety get the best of us. Adam and Eve, Abram and Sarai, Lot’s daughters, Isaac and Rachel, Leah and Rebekah…they all let their own anxiety and agenda get in the way of what God have for them. Don’t let this happen to you! I encourage you to write down all of the things you are afraid of…and for the record, I don’t mean things like snakes or bears. That kind of fear is a legitimate reaction to keep us alive. But what are you afraid of with God? Can you pray over these things everyday to grow your faith muscle? Jeremiah 29:11 tells us that God has a plan for us, a plan for good and not evil, and plan for future and hope. Dear friends, don’t live in fear!
