7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline. -
Hello family, i get inspirational text messages. They have been a blessing to me. A few days ago one text message struck me in an odd way. The text message read “The bible says perfect love cast out fear it didn't say perfect faith. So yes you can be in faith and feel fear.” Normally i would read the text and move on if it was not for me. But it kept stirring in my sprit.
When we are about to take a leap of faith that God has moved us to take we will feel fear. But we cannot allow that feeling or thought to stay and take root. The bible clearly tells us not to fear. In multiple psalms David wrote about being afraid but then he turned around from that fear and acknowledged and praised the awesome mighty all powerful Heavenly father he serves. “4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou [art] with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. - Psalm 23:4 KJV”
We put our faith in God our father, we put our faith in His commands, we put our faith in these 66 books that he spoke into existence using a vast range of people to put ink to paper. Now God is love (perfect love) and “perfect love cast out fear”. God our heavenly father loves us, He is jealous for us! He gave His one and only son for us! We then put our faith in Him, knowing that no matter what situation arises in our life we do not need to fear! Kick fear to the curb because if allowed to stay it will hinder you. God (your heavenly father) loves you and he will take better care of you than you can take care of your self! YOU HAVE NOTHING TO FEAR, GOD LOVES YOU!!!!!
Much Love & God Bless
