Faith and Facts

Have just done another wonderful #lovegodgreatly bible study with my lovely ladies. We have been looking at Fear & Anxiety overcoming with the truth of God’s Word. There has been so much in this and I have learnt so much, one of the main things being that I replace fears wth facts.  It is not replacing fear with faith, but with God’s truth.

This may not seem significant, but it is.  You see my faith can fail, my faith can be weak, my faith can be overwhelmed by fears and anxieties, my faith is about me and depends on me.  But God’s truth – that is objective, it stands clear and firm, it is not based on me, it does not depend on me, it does not fluctuate according to my feelings, it stands eternal and sure.

So when fears and anxieties come in and would seek to engulf me, I don’t turn to my own faith, I turn to the truth of God’s Word and I submit them to that.

There I find that God is bigger than my fears .

“The Lord is my light and my salvation; of whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid ?” (Ps 27:1)

There I find that God loves me.

For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor Angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the LOVE of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.  (Rom 8:37-39)

There I find that God will forgive me:

As far as east is from the west so far does He remove our transgressions from us. (Ps 103:12)

There I find that God does not condemn me:

“There is therefore now no condemnation for this who are in Christ Jesus” (Rom 8:1)

There I find that God will take care of me:

And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from His glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.” (Phil 4:19, NLT)

So When fears or anxieties or even worries arise I come back to God’s Word and I believe the truth of His Word over my fears, over my “what ifs”.  I listen to God’s Word and not to my fears, I trust God’s truth to quell the anxieties. I believe that God will do as He says He will in His Word, I believe God is able to deal with every single one of my fears and anxieties, I believe my God is able to do abundantly more for me than what I can even imagine! He is able to deal with every single one of my moments.

My God is bigger than my biggest fear.
