Faith Vs. Fear:
Making Belief a Way of Life
By Ameerah Lewis
FAITH is the assurance
(the confirmation, the
title deed) of the things [we] hope for,
being the proof
of things [we]
do not see
and the conviction of their reality
[faith perceiving as
real fact what is not revealed to the senses].
- Hebrews 11:1 AMP
As I prepare for the newest class we'll
be starting at School-of-the-Spirit.org next week on faith, fear, and
learning to truly trust God, I really had to stop and ask myself a
serious question: What
do I really have faith in?
You know, when it comes down to it,
faith and fear are the exact same thing:
expectation, whether positive or negative, of something that you can
not yet see.
Why then, do we as
find that expecting our impending doom is far easier than
expecting to see the everyday victories that God promises us in His
What are you really expecting to see
in your daily life? God's promises that you will prosper and
be in health, or the world's promises of turmoil and tragedy?
In what have you placed your faith?
Unfortunately, if we are being
honest, most Christians have more faith in Satan's ability to steal,
and destroy; than our Heavenly Father's ability to give us an
and overflowing life of victory through Christ Jesus (John 10:10).
Of course, we all want to be able to
say that we've placed our faith in God. And yet, we are
constantly plagued by thoughts of fear and doubt instead of hope and
Our thoughts reveal the tragic
truth: Through the media and the lies of the enemy,we have learned to
expect the worse.
You know, I love reading the opening
scripture, Hebrews 11:1, because it reminds us that faith is our
assurance and proof
that the things that we do not yet see are as real as the
things we see before us.
In fact, if you ever really want to
walk in Victory over life's circumstances, then the promises that God
has written to you in His Word must become even more real to you than
what you can see, touch or feel!
That is true belief.
That is true faith - When
you learn to truly trust
what God's Word promises you more than you do what you see with our own
Though your eyes may see poverty,
what you see doesn't move you because you know beyond a shadow of a
doubt that God will indeed bless the work of your hands, and you will
be the lender and not the borrower (Deut. 28:12)
Faith says, "If my circumstances
don't reflect God's Word, it just means God's not done
yet! I'm just going to keep standing until I receive the
Promise!" Why? Because there's no expiration date
on true faith!
When you are able to say...
"It does not matter what my
circumstances look like - Those circumstances don't change God's
promises to me. But, His promises to me can definitely change
That is the day you've truly learned
to "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not
on your own understanding" (Proverbs 3:5). That is the day
that you will finally begin your own personal walk of VICTORY!
