To live in fear is to live in a cage of your own making. Fear is only an indicator of a problem. It is not something you should live as a lifestyle. To live in fear is to live in uncertainty or insecurity.
There are two ways to live life, either live in faith or fear. Faith means you live in confidence and trust of the unknown. Fear means you live in uncertainty, doubt and in doom of the unknown.
So, when you compare the two “F”s” and weigh their strengths, it would seem living by faith would be your immediate response to the “faith” or “fear” question. Living in faith does not mean you spend all your time waiting around for an answer to hit you over the head. To make faith work you have to roll up your sleeves and get busy being proactive. Along with your faith, it takes a plan of action and a willingness to do whatever it takes to get the job done.
Faith feeds you, like watering a garden. Fear depletes you and leaves you dry, like a garden waiting for water in the middle of a drought.
Faith and fear are two reactions that work hand in hand, in a team plan. When in the midst of fear you find an answer by using faith.
Fear causes you to lose your sense of self. Faith allows you to find your lost self and allows you to to take your time. Fear causes you to lose hope. Faith allows you time to find hope.
Faith is a tool of systematic healing. Fear is a declaration of war with no solution.
Faith grants you freedom and a free card out of the jail of fear. Faith and a plan of action produces an almost guaranteed positive result. You have to trust the timing of faith.
So, when you become proactive and use the effectiveness of faith in action, you begin to live a life in solution.
Choose your “F’s” wisely.
Acceptance of the truth of the realities of life allows you to live outside of fear.
