Fear is the absence of God


Fear is the absence of God

Fear ends where God’s love and faith begins. When you let go of fear then you can gracefully move from what was into the miracle of what can be. From an Old English Proverb “Fear knocked at the door and faith answered. No one was there”.

What door are you opening the fear door or the faith door. The fear door is full of “what if’s”. The faith door is filled with the confidence of God’s promises. HE loves you. Remind HIM of HIS promises to never leave you or forsake you. Remind HIM you are HIS dearly beloved child. Remind HIM you have been adopted as HIS child through the shed blood of Jesus Christ.

The faith door is filled with power of the Holy Spirit. God did not give you a spirit of fear but of power, love and a sound mind. Fear is the absence of God. Faith is the filling of the power of God’s Spirit in your life.

Rejoice in the Lord always again I say rejoice. Let your gentleness (not fear) be evident to all the Lord is near. The Lord will provide and protect you. HE is your strength when trouble comes. HE is your strong tower. He is your comforter. The antidote to fear is faith in receiving all of God’s love. Seek first God’s Kingdom and HIS righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you. Your walk is by faith and not by sight.

If you don’t master your fear, your fear will master you. You can try to escape your fears through activity, relationships, alcohol, eating, drugs, or work. These are temporary. The source of fear still remains. The antidote to fear comes when you rest in the promises of God. Not that you love God but, that HE loved you and gave HIS son for you. The antidote comes when you seek HIM with all of your heart. When you seek HIM you will find HIM, when you seek HIM with all of your heart.

Rest in God’s forgiving love knowing all of your sins have been forgiven. Receive God’s love and fear will go away. Spend time in God’s Word. Sing and shout to the Lord. Count your blessings and quote scripture back to God. Find someone who you can help and give yourself to that person. Walk today with an attitude of thanksgiving and gratefulness. Your hope is in the Lord.
