Faith Over Fear

For a variety of reasons, I’ve been feeling a bit on edge this week. And by “a bit on edge” I actually mean “filled with anxiety and fear.” To top it off, I have had a yucky cold that has got me feeling lethargic and meh. Anyway, the reason I bring this up is because I felt so convicted last night when I read this quote on Instagram (the Holy Spirit can use Insta if He wants to, am I right?!):

In the post, Gretchen wrote out a prayer that simply says, “God, make my faith deeper than my fears.” I have spent the majority of this week letting fear get the best of me instead of believing God when He says that He is working everything together for my good and His glory (Romans 8:28). Maybe you, like me, are sitting here on a random Friday afternoon in December, needing the reminder that God’s love for us is so much bigger than our anxieties.

“If our hearts condemn us, we know that God is greater than our hearts, and He knows everything.” -1 John 3:20

Lord, let our faith be bigger than our fear. Amen.
