FAITH or FEAR –...YOUR choice!
Hebrews 11:1 “Faith is the substance of things hoped for,
and things not yet seen.”
Please pay close attention to these definitions:
¨ FAITH is… “…a spiritual force that is released through your
words; faith goes out and grabs hold of the things that you are believing for,
and manifests them in your life.”
¨ FEAR is… “…a spiritual force that is released through your
words; fear goes out and grabs hold of the things you fear, and manifests them
in your life.”
What do you fear? Afraid that you… “…wont be able to
make the house-payment next month.” - “…will
never be a success.” - “…be alone the rest of
my life.” –- “…die at a young age, because…” Your
life will be determined by your faith, or your fear,
which are you living in? If worry, concern and anxiety dominate
your thoughts, you are living in fear!
Philippians 4:6 NKJ “Be anxious for nothing,
but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving let you
requests be made known to God; and the peace of God which surpasses all
understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
When Job was in his
lowest state, had lost everything he owned, and all of his children, he said: “The thing I greatly feared has come upon me.” Job
Mark 11:22-23 NKJ “
Soooooooo… is the script of your
life being written by FAITH or by FEAR? What are you speaking into your life today?
As a child, I started each school-year thinking: “no one will like me… I won’t fit in… they’ll all laugh at me… I hate
school, etc.” Sure enough… fear
ruled my life – and the things that I feared happened!!
fills your child’s mind about school?
FAITH SAYS: “I am a child of God,
I am highly-favored; people see
thoughts dominate your thinking about your JOB?
FAITH SAYS: “It is God who
promotes His kids; He opens & closes doors according to His will and
purpose for my life. My God supplies all my needs, according to HIS riches, in
do you think about your future?
FAITH SAYS: “My Father loves me,
and His thoughts toward me are GOOD and not evil, to give me a future and a
hope! His plans for me are greater
than anything I can think or ask! My
Father has good stuff planned for me, and He directs my steps every day; He
turns my heart according to His will, and then gives me the desires of my heart!”
thoughts does the enemy try to sell you about your children?
FAITH SAYS: “God is working to do
His will in the lives of my children, and working to perfect everything that
concerns them, and me. He is mindful of them, and has given angels charge over
them. I have accepted
FEAR IS ONE OF THE
ENEMY’S BIGGEST GUNS AGAINST GOD’S KIDS:
Fear comes to steal, kill & destroy.
Fear comes to cancel-our faith.
We can not live our life inside of fear – and expect faith to work
The enemy of your soul,
the one who wants to rob the blessings of God from you, destroy
your dreams, and to kill you before you reach destiny – knows the power that
accompanies faith. He works day and night to get God’s kids into fear. As the
children of God, we need to get over into the arena of the “Faith of God” – and
Hebrews 11:6 “Without faith, it is impossible to please God.”
FAITH or FEAR… which will determine YOUR future?!?
Shalom! SHINE ON!!
