Turning Fear into Faith

By Michael Youssef, Ph D.  06/24/22

In putting our focus on God, we are demonstrating faith that God is the Creator and controller of all things. Nothing is beyond His reach of power. When we turn our fear into faith, God’s peace begins to fill our hearts. We are able to face all of life with greater hope. When we see God, who loves us and cares for us, as being bigger and more powerful than any problem we have, we find confidence and courage.

What fears in your life are keeping you from peace? Do you fear the loss of a relationship or the loss of your wealth? Do you worry you might be diagnosed with a debilitating disease? What are you most afraid of—failure, loss, tragedy? No matter what it is, you can be certain that Jesus conquered all of these things at the cross.

If you find yourself losing your peace because of a troubled heart, God will give you the strength to overcome your fears and anxieties. Stop trying to ignore or bury your worries. Take them to God in prayer and let Him know what is troubling you. Ask Him to turn your fear into faith and to fill your heart and calm your mind with His supernatural peace. Then continue to spend time in His presence daily.

Prayer: God, help me to focus on You, turning my fear into faith, and allowing You to calm me with Your peace. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.

“You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you” (Isaiah 26:3).
