Every day, in every hard situation, we can choose faith or we can choose fear.
We can choose to focus on the what if’s, worry about what might happen, and fret over the worst case scenarios.
Or, we can remind ourselves of how God has been faithful in the past and trust that He is going to continue to be faithful and good in the present and future — even in dark, difficult, or even downright impossible situations.
Our circumstances do not change God’s character.
I don’t know what you’re going through today or what giants you might be facing, but I do know this: our God is greater than any giant, stronger than any Goliath, and He is able to deliver and help you.
Let’s believe that God is bigger and mightier. Let’s take God at His Word.
He will never, ever, ever leave or forsake us. He is FOR us. And He is still in the miracle-working business.
Let’s talk faith, not fear.
If you need some encouragement to stop living in fear, this week on the podcast, Jesse and I talk about faith versus fear and what has helped us to stop living in a state of stress and fear.
