2 Timothy 1:7 tells us that God did not give us a spirit of fear or timidity, but of power, love, and a sound mind (NLT). So, if God has instructed us to not fear, then why do we? Perhaps, it’s within our biological nature, maybe we’ve been taught it, or we’ve been put in one too many situations where fear was the only thing we could feel. Nonetheless, when you faith, you’re not supposed to fear. I’ll be honest and say I’ve had both…at the same time. While I was afraid of what I was going through and the problems that I was experiencing, I also had hope and faith in God that He would see me through (and He did). Ultimately, I had to make a decision between the two, to see which one would prevail. However, in the end, faith wins!
When you receive a knock at the door and faith and fear are there, which will you let in?
