I have a sign on my closet door I made back in January of 2014 that reads: “I will replace fear with faith” I made it as a reminder to myself that I can have faith when I am fearful or discouraged but I am not sure I have really followed it that much. I think that I was unsure how until now. Now when I feel anxiety or fear of some kind I find myself praying for the faith I need to get through the situation.
I am not a pro at it by any means but I am getting better and that is the important thing. I have overcome a lot of fears in that past year and I am grateful for that.
In the Book “Everyday Encouragement Journal” It says,” The Word of God never changes. The Father’s commands do not alter, and neither does Jesus…Those who trust in him are secure, as the Lord himself for he does not change, and none of his promises pass away unfulfilled. receive Christ as your savior and trust in him”
In Matthew 21:21-22 we read:
Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.
Today I will replace fear with faith by:
Praying every time I feel anxious or fearful
remembering that God is in charge and wants me to succeed
dropping the danger and knowing that God will provide.
Today, I am glad it is Friday. It has been a long, hard week. I am glad the weekend is nearly here. I am grateful for my Heavenly Father’s love and protection and grateful that all I need to do is pray to him and he will comfort me. I heard once that you should fake it till you make it but I am going to faith it till I make it instead,
