Fear and Faith
.
In Mark 4:40 Jesus ask the disciples, "Why are ye so fearful? How is it that ye have no faith?

The same question could be asked of us today. Have we allowed fear to conrol our lives rather than courage and faith? Is our faith tied too closely to what we fear? This week lets study how we can overcome fears and trust God for healing. love, and power

What does the bible say about fear?

What does the Bible say about faith?

Christian author Max Lucado talks about fear in his book, Fearless.

Desire of Ages makes this point about fear:
"As Jesus rested by faith in the Father’s care, so we are to rest in the care of our Saviour. If the disciples had trusted in Him, they would have been kept in peace. Their fear in the time of danger revealed their unbelief. In their efforts to save themselves, they forgot Jesus; and it was only when, in despair of self-dependence, they turned to Him that He could give them help. {DA 336.2}
The Desire of Ages, p. 336.3 (EGW)

How often the disciples’ experience is ours! When the tempests of temptation gather, and the fierce lightnings flash, and the waves sweep over us, we battle with the storm alone, forgetting that there is One who can help us. We trust to our own strength till our hope is lost, and we are ready to perish. Then we remember Jesus, and if we call upon Him to save us, we shall not cry in vain. Though He sorrowfully reproves our unbelief and self-confidence, He never fails to give us the help we need. Whether on the land or on the sea, if we have the Saviour in our hearts, there is no need of fear. Living faith in the Redeemer will smooth the sea of life, and will deliver us from danger in the way that He knows to be best. {DA 336.3}"


May the Lord bless you and keep you this week.
We pray Christ helps you overcome your fears and trust Him more each day.
God Bless
