Is Fear or Faith Driving You?

Make sure your faith always speaks louder than fear!

Fear is a thief and will cost you the ability to hear and see clearly. It will push you to make decisions out of worry, completely drowning out peace. Fear creates an inner turmoil that keeps us under circumstances making it impossible to soar above it all like God desires us to.

I have a simple method that I work through to ensure all fear driven thoughts are silenced until faith is what’s driving me.

I do this by connecting with what I’m thinking and saying in regards to a specific situation…

Our thoughts and what comes out of our mouths will reveal whether we are driven by faith or fear.

If I find myself starting sentences like, “I’m afraid of” (fill in the blank), or “I’m worried about…” or, “what if…” and bad scenarios are playing in my head, I STOP and replace those anxious, fear driven thoughts with Truth!

For example: “My God is for me. So, who can be against me? He goes both before me and beside me. With Him, I have NOTHING to fear! My God is faithful and He will guide me with precision. In Him and through Him I am steady and unwavering…”

My mind and my heart begin to shift from a place of doubt to a place of confidence and I find a sanctuary of peace sustaining me in the most overwhelming seasons.

Faith unlocks the chains of fear and I’m able to see beyond the borders of my human limitations, keeping me in a forward motion regardless of what I see or feel in the natural.

It’s time to check in with what’s driving you and make sure your faith is the only thing that’s moving you!

“This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” —Joshua 1:9 (NLT)
