Faith & Fear

Twice within this past week
I have driven past a 
local church marquee
that says,
"Feed your faith
and your fears will starve."

Both times Holy Spirit said,
"Fear is a choice."

As I thought about this further,
Holy Spirit reminded me that,
in Scripture,
we are told numerous times
NOT to fear
(worry, fret, be afraid, dismayed or concerned).

And truly,
since we are commanded
NOT to fear,
then obviously, 
we have a choice in the matter.

Faith, the Bible tells us,
is a gift;
another wonderful, gracious gift
freely given to us by Jesus.

And as with all gifts,
we choose either to use it
or cast it aside.

When we view these things;
Faith & fear,
in light of what they truly are,
see, once again,
just how simple God made it
for us to access all of the goodness
He intends for us.

Oh what a
Father He IS!
