FAITH NOT FEAR | Do Not Be Afraid – Inspirational & Motivational Video
Now let me ask you What are you afraid of A better question would be how do you respond to fear How you respond to your fear Is what determines how much power it will have over you How has fear hindered you from living the life you want to live How is fear stop you from accomplishing your goals Don’t let fear steal your life Don’t let fear steal your relationships.
Don’t let fear steal your joy God wants you to have a good life But one thing’s for sure you have an enemy His name is satan or the devil and he does not want you to enjoy your life He wants you to be afraid all the time Fear is expecting the devil to move faith is expecting God to move And we choose You can put your eyes on the devil or eyes on God Here’s what you need to understand about the nature of the devil.
He’s an opportunist When you’re the weakest, he’s the most evil The devil doesn’t control our thoughts but he influences our thoughts he he wants to whisper thoughts of fear to us, so we’ll accept them And he can control our lives God God will never use fear to control your lives and when you read in the bible It says the fear of the Lord, that means a reverence of God That does not mean a negative emotion.
It means a positive emotion A reverence for God God will never Never bring fear into your life to cause you to do anything The devil wants you to believe that God’s always kind of mad at you and he really doesn’t like you That’s the concept of God The devil wants you to have your high priest is madly in love with you and when you go to Jesus and you say Jesus I’m tempted And I’m feeling fearful Jesus says this I experienced that I know exactly what you’re feeling Let me help you overcome it Because I have my faith in Jesus I don’t have to approach the throne with fear and trembling thinking God doesn’t want to hear from me You know what God gets so excited about hearing your voice every time you come And every time you pray he’s so excited to hear what you have to say And he wants to help you and he wants to do things for you But you have to believe and believe all the way through If you let fear rule your life you’re never going to find out about the wonderful life that God has for you Do not be afraid Do not be afraid, you know, the bible says do not be afraid or fear not one of those two things 365 times the bible says do not be afraid or fear not 365 times that’s one for every day of the year You can take that with you from January all the way through to December do not be afraid The commandment do not fear Or fear not is the number one commandment in the bible God did not create us to live in fear It’s the opposite of the way that he created us God created us to live in peace And there’s really only one way to conquer And overcome fear and that’s with faith when fear knocks on your door Send faith to answer Fear and faith are two opposing forces We receive everything from God by faith And we receive everything the enemy wants for us by fear Faith brings a victory into your life.
What is faith faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen now let’s think about that. What is it. It’s the substance of things that you hope for But don’t see yet the evidence of things that you do not see But fear is actually believing for the negative It fear is the evidence of things we don’t hope for And the substance of things we don’t want to see happen So we really must learn to choose to live by faith And that just simply means putting your trust in God Believing that he loves you that he sent Jesus to die for you that he has a good plan for your life And that he’s promised to never leave you or forsake you Many of the places in the word of God where the bible says do not fear The only reason that they give for not fearing is because I am with you God says do not fear for I am with you.
He says do not be afraid because I’m with you He says do not be afraid because I’m for you He says do not be afraid because I love you. Do not be afraid because I am your God See ultimately Fear is a matter of perspective Fear is a matter of perspective how you view something either by faith or by fear will determine whether or not You run toward it or you run away from it Fear is a response to a set of possibilities The devil would love for you to live by fear Because when you’re afraid you run away Fear makes you want to run away from from what you need to run to Let me say this if if you could see God how he really is you would run toward him and you’d never feel fear again He is madly in love with you he understands not just your issues but why you have those issues And he wants you to come to him and let him mercifully and graciously help you Jesus said I’m humble and gentle And you’ll find rest for your souls in my presence Do you know that the word fear Doesn’t mean to shake or tremble or to be nervous the word fear means to take flight or to run from So when God says in his word do not fear for I am with you what he’s really saying is Fear is going to come to you but when you feel it, don’t run Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord which he will work for you today I wonder how many opportunities God has put in front of you to do great things And yet you are afraid of the unknown So you stayed in what you think is the safe zone Your new Attitude toward life has to be I will not fear.
I didn’t say you wouldn’t feel fear But you’re not going to give in to fear because God is with you Focusing on your fear instead of having faith and the one who holds your tomorrow is foolish Focusing on your fear instead of having faith in the one who holds your tomorrow.
It is foolish Don’t do it Don’t do it Put our mind on the things of God not on our fear Being afraid is not trusting God Don’t let anything cause you not to trust God Don’t let anything cause you not to trust God Don’t take anyone’s opinion more highly than what God says about you what he says to you in his word No matter who’s against you And no matter who tells you that you’re not enough and you can’t and you’ll never be able to If God is with you you can do anything that God asks you to do.
It’s time for you to live a braver life It’s time for you to step out and find out what all you’re capable of And I really think it’s time for us to really go back to believing that all things are possible with God And sometimes I don’t think it’s so much that we doubt that God can do it But we doubt that he will do it for us We have doubts about ourselves It’s fear that causes us to doubt that God loves us and has a plan for us You’ve got to get over what you’re afraid of in order to walk in the best of what God has for you You have got to get over what you are afraid of in order to walk in and experience the best of what God has for you God put the best things in life on the other side of fear You know when God says fear not He’s not telling us not to feel fear.
I actually think it’s kind of a a warning that you will Feel fear and I think that fear is the main thing that satan uses to try to control people fear Keeps you from going forward how many things do you think that the enemy has stolen from you or kept you from doing just because of fear and so we have to learn that we don’t have to bow down to fear just because we feel fear courage is Actually taking forward motion in the presence of fear courage is not not feeling fear Courage is feeling the fear and doing what you believe God wants you to do anyway He didn’t say that things won’t be scary.
Uh, he just said don’t be afraid God didn’t say everything’s gonna be peachy. Everything’s gonna be easy. No, in fact, he said in this world you will have trouble But I have overcome He didn’t say it was going to be easy he just said don’t be afraid Do not be afraid to accept Christ or to turn back to him Do not be afraid to repent of your sins no matter where you are.
No matter what’s going on There’s nothing you could do that would ever make God love you less. Do not be afraid And do not be afraid to live for him You want to know really why you don’t have to be afraid Because God loves you And nothing you are facing and nothing you will ever face can stop his love
