Fear-Faith-Fight

It is snowing again!  Just when I thought it was going to warmTree of Life Banner Widget up and maybe see some green, it is cold and windy again. In my school classroom, we have snow flakes all over one wall with the phrase, “Let It Snow”. I said yesterday, I don’t want to see any more snow, let’s take that down and put up birds and flowers and sun. I know it is coming, so I am going to prepare for it, start thinking like it and let it begin looking like it. I am getting ready for spring!
 
In our life we face some times when we are so tired of our circumstances. We are overwhelmed with fear, because we think we can never get past the problems we are facing. But, it is time to fight our fear with faith. Start believing in the God that can change our problems into victories. Stop looking at what we see, and instead start believing in the word of God and seeing in faith what He can do!
 
There is a saying, “The early bird gets the worm.” We need to be like the early bird and go after the word of God. We will get our victory when we fight our fear with faith in the word of God.  “O God, thou are my God; early will I seek thee; my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is.”(Ps. 63:1) When I am feeling discouraged and full of fear, I need to go to the Bible.  There I will find the nourishment my soul needs to fight with faith the fear that is trying to overtake my life and keep me from moving forward in God.
 
Another saying I have heard is; “Birds of a feather flock together”. The last thing we need to do when we are fearful, discouraged and overwhelmed is get with other people that will add more fear and negativity to our situation. We need to fight our fear with faith by putting ourselves together with others who have experienced victory and can help us through. It is important to attend services because we can build our faith and defeat fear by the encouragement of others.
 
We are fighting a fight of faith and we can win. We can defeat fear and move forward in God, but it is not going to be without effort. We must believe in the Word of God and apply His word to our fight of faith. No matter what our circumstances and situations may look like right now, I believe in God. I believe He is able to bring us through.
 
Go to the word of God and start fighting fear with faith.
 

Isaiah 41:10 (ESV)

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

 

Deuteronomy 31:6 (ESV)

Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.”
 

Isaiah 54:17 (ESV)

17     no weapon that is fashioned against you shall succeed,

and you shall refute every tongue that rises against you in judgment.

This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord

and their vindication from me, declares the Lord.”
