This word is on my heart today. I woke up thinking about it, and my devotions spoke of it.
All this before sunrise.
My thought process is simple. Simple like this..... fear is the opposite of faith. So, unless I am completely filled with faith, then there is room for fear.
Simply because fear is the absence of faith.
Fear sneaks in. It doesn't always slap the face, or grip the heart tightly. Fear starts small sometimes.
Small like a thought.
But here's the thing - it's a beautiful thing - faith starts small too.
Small like a mustard seed.
No one person is completely fearless or faith-filled, but each of us is bombarded with opportunities to choose between the two. Thousands of thoughts pass through our minds every day, and even more words are spoken.
With every thought or word, seeds are planted.
Seeds of fear, or seeds of faith.
I'm even more convinced than ever that the choice is up to us... the choice of direction, and how the story will unfold.
I think to myself ..... if fear can creep in, then why not faith?
Fear leads to bondage, seclusion, and stagnant ambition.
Faith leads to freedom. Period.
Freedom is the opposite of bondage, and can slowly seep into all areas of our life, therefore, positioning us to prosper.
Oh, the power of choice.
