When I am afraid, I will put my trust in You. Psalm 56:3
“We walk by faith not by sight.” 2 Corinthians 5:7 Sight has to do with everything we see happening in the world around us, but this kind of sight has more do with our perception of things. Our perception involves all of our senses. We may see a fire, but we can also smell it, feel its heat, hear it burning, and even taste it in the air we breathe. With all the uncertainty of this pandemic our senses are in danger of experiencing overload with negativity and fear that fills the daily news outlets.
Remember, every time we find ourselves afraid it is time to stir up our faith. We stir our faith by recalling, confessing and walking upon the promises of God. We walk by faith when we put our trust in God and His word. Faith means looking to God and what God has to say about every situation. Faith is the evidence of what we cannot see. (Hebrews 11:1) God’s word is the evidence that changes our outlook on life. When we put our trust in God fear leaves. It melts away and loses its power to affect our lives any further. If we will go to the word every time we are afraid, then Satan will give up on his schemes really quick. “Resist the devil and He will flee from you.” James 4:7 So, turn off the world’s opinion, and turn on God’s wisdom found in His faith building, life-giving, living and powerful word. (Hebrews 4:12)
