As I sit on my bed, I have "Peace Be Still" by Lauren Daigle playing in the background.
"Let faith rise up, oh heart believe," were words she sang that stood out to me. I had to ask myself — am I having a heart of faith or fear for my situation right now? I love this verse from 1 Corinthians 16:13. "Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong," it says.
Standing firm is a powerful stance.
Standing in faith is not an easy thing at times. I can tell you that in my life, where I've stood in faith, my perspective and focus have been on God and the plans He has. When I feel myself wavering in faith, it's because my focus is on fear and insecurity.
I actually think fear and faith are similar because they both mean that you're standing and fixing your focus on a particular thing. The difference is that faith means you trust in God.
I don't know what is happening in your life at the moment. I don't know what needs you have, or what your fears are. One thing I do know is that I am going to declare words of faith, not fear. Perhaps you'll join me.
