Fear Trumps Faith

10 When Pharaoh drew near, the people of Israel lifted up their eyes, and behold, the Egyptians were marching after them, and they feared greatly. And the people of Israel cried out to the Lord. ~ Exodus 14:10

The people of Israel had just left Egypt. They were finally free. They were now on their way to their promised land. Then all of a sudden, Pharaoh and his army were on their coattails, and they were afraid.

Because of fear, their faith and all that they hoped for disappeared. It was completely drained from their body because of what they saw with their eyes. This is where some of us are today. We’ve just been freed from our sin. We’re on the way to our promised land when the very sin we just overcome comes after us again, so we start doubting God’s promises. We start doubting that we have overcome. We start doubting that we can stay sober, stop lusting, stop greed, stop pride, etc.

Fear tells us we’re not good enough. Fear tells us that we can’t do it. Fear tells us that nothing has changed, will ever change, or could ever change. But faith tells us that we are more than conquerors. Faith tells us that we are saved and justified by the blood of Jesus. Faith tells us that we are no longer our past, but we are a new creation in Christ Jesus.

Faith in Christ Jesus is how we overcome fear. Faith in who we are and who we will be is how we overcome. We overcome fear through our faith.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Trump Fear With Faith.
