Fear is a faith LESS sin. “Fear not” and “Do not fear” are all commands/ directives given by God in scripture multiple times, Yet, fear is usually our first response to an issue, problem or difficult situation. I know this because, for a large majority of my life, I lived from a subconscious place of fear. Fear of rejection, fear of something being wrong with me, fear of something bad happening in my life, you name it and there’d always be an opportunity to fear.
“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
Fear is NOT a normal response to life’s issues for a believer. Because fear itself shows a lack of faith in God’s promises and provisions. Faith is the only response to fear and the only way to truly overcome it.
How? Confidently trust in and rely on God. Go to Him in prayer and read His Word, rest in what He promises and believe that He will do what He says.
It may not always be EASY but it sure is POSSIBLE!
