When You're Afraid

When you're afraid in any situation, turn your thoughts toward God. Remember that God is with you everywhere and all the time. Make faith in God's presence your confidence. We may easily become afraid when our confidence is in ourselves or anyone else, other than God Himself. He cannot fail. He must prevail. Faith is confident in God's ability and power.

Faith is always confident in God. Trust in God through every situation of life. Faith that is confident in God brings practical results. When you lie down, you will not be afraid; yes, you will lie down and your sleep will be sweet (Proverbs 3:24). Be confident with faith in God to conquer all your fears. Self-confidence may easily be defeated in the face of fear. Make faith in God your confidence.

Real faith is confident in God. Find confidence in God that will conquer your fear. The word confidence means with faith. It's not faith in yourself, but faith in God which brings real confidence. For the LORD will be your confidence (Proverbs 3:26). 

Faith is never in your faith. To the contrary, faith finds sure confidence in God alone. It's not how much faith you have, but it's the focus of your faith. The faith focused upon God's word of promise cannot fail, simply because God cannot fail. Faith is confident that God will do what He has promised.
