Faith Over Fear

Updated: Jan 26, 2021


Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen as it says in Hebrews 11:1. We tend to have faith in the little things, the big things, and most times the impossible. But I know there have been times where you’ve had faith but you were also fearful. Fear is not a characteristic God has given us.


Fear occurs when we don’t trust or believe that we are safe. When we experience fear we go into fight or flight mode. Either we’re going to defend ourselves or run away. But if God did not give us the spirit of fear why is that we are still not 100% trusting in Him?








Our faith waivers when we see inconsistency or when we sense an inch of doubt. Fear, doubt, confusion are all things that come from the enemy to try to sway us away from all God has for us. The enemy will manipulate us and feed us mind games.


This is why Romans 12:2 is so important because if we allow our minds to be wrapped up in this world that’s full of sin and lies then our minds will remain far away from God and the further away from God we are the enemy will use that as leverage to try to consume us.


We must have the faith of a mustard seed even when we don’t 100% understand God’s plans. And yes it’ll be scary, but you must not lose faith. Having an inch of faith is better than not having any faith at all.


Here are some tips to increase your faith:

1. Read the Word: When you read of God's promises you'll start to see that God has done amazing works since the beginning of time. So if He did it back then He will do it today, tomorrow, and many more days to come.


2. Internalize the Word: Not only does reading the Word bring insight but when you truly understand and begin to digest what God wants for you, you'll begin to feel more confident in God's promises. Your faith will increase.


3. Live out the Word: Live your life according to the instructions the Bible provides. Live your life like Christ. Live in faith!


So, I want to encourage you both to think about the ways or times where you’ve let your fear overtake your faith and then think about the times where you had impeccable faith and view the different outcomes and evaluate them. From there, I think you’ll see that having faith is non-negotiable. :)
