Faith Over Fear

Psalm 56:3

Verse of the Day:   Psalm 56:3          

When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.        

David was surrounded on all sides by difficulties and dangers and was afraid for his life yet he trusted in God. He acknowledged and admitted his fear and then asked God to show mercy on him and help him. If he had let fear over take his faith, he may have had a different outcome. Likewise, the enemy will use fear to keep you from the plans God has for your life.  He knows if he keeps putting doubts and fear in your mind you will never step out in faith to accomplish what God has planned for you. Turn to God, put your trust in Him alone. When you are afraid, step out in faith knowing that God is with you and He will equip you for what He has called you to do.  So many people never achieve the success God has planned for them because they are too afraid to take the first step. Don’t let fear keep you from living the life God has planned for you.

Draw Near to God

James 4 8

Verse of the Day:  James 4:8

Draw near to God and he will draw near to you.

We all need God in our lives, but how do you “draw near to God”?  You draw near to Him by faith, repentance and obedience. Study the Word of God to learn who He really is. Seek Him with all your heart through prayer, fasting, praise and worship for He is worthy. God is waiting for you to take the first step by inviting Him into every part of your life. He loves you more than you can ever imagine and when you draw near to Him, He will draw near to you with His love, grace and mercy.
