SEEDS FROM THE SOWER

Faith is the Opposite of fear. When we have hearts that are filled with faith in God, fear has a difficult time finding a place in our lives.

Because this is true, we must ask ourselves, "What can we do to fight against fear? How can we keep a calm heart and live a peaceful life?" Faith and fear cannot occupy the same heart at the same time.

There was a king in Scripture who was pursued relentlessly by his enemies. He became weak, but his enemies were strong. He was by himself, but there was a large group that was trying to locate and destroy him. How did he handle this fear?

He placed his faith in the Lord. He cried, "Though a mighty army surround me, my heart will know no fear...! will wait patiently for the Lord and be brave and courageous."

The Lord will never forsake the one who has faith in Him as long as they live with and for Him. To believe in God empowers us to face life with a brave heart and a bold stance.
