Faith or Fear?


The verdict of the ages is that faith means courage. All men of faith have courage. They trust their God. We never apologize for God. Instead we let Him demonstrate, through us, what He can do. We ask Him to remove our fear and direct our attention to what He would have us be. At once, we commence to outgrow fear. Alcoholics Anonymous pg 68

That day when evening came, he said to his disciples, “Let us go over to the other side.” Leaving the crowd behind, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat. There were also other boats with him. A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, “Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?” He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm. He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?” Mark 4:35-40 NIV

Father God, thank you for this day. Forgive me for the times when I’ve given into fear by looking at the wind and waves around me instead of looking to you. Thank you for your love and tender mercy. Father, I cast all my cares on you today knowing that you care for me. I pray that you would direct my attention to what you would have me be and do today.  I thank you Lord that you have not given me a spirit of fear but of power, love and a sound mind.  In Jesus Name, Amen
