Faith vs. Fear


They look at each other

as they stand face to face.

The battle has begun.

Who will win.

They both are so strong and mighty.

Ready. Set. Go.

FAITH vs. FEAR.

FEAR begins.

He stands so tall and doesn't even have to say a word,

because nothing can get by him

because he won't move.

He is dressed with a confidence

and a stubbornness because he refuses to let anyone get near him.

He is daunting. No one can talk to him

because he won't listen.

Oh the facade FEAR wears

as he looks so strong and mighty, yet inside he feels like a mouse.

And there stands FAITH.

FAITH smiles. He is relaxed.

He doesn't even look like he is prepared for the battle.

It is like he is waiting for a stunt man to stand in his place.

As FAITH looks like a mouse looking into the eyes of

FEAR who looks like a lion getting ready to roar.

It is so obvious to the naked eye who will win the battle.

FEAR speaks~

I am anxious and worried about everything.

I doubt all truth.

So don't even think about getting near me

because I won't let you touch me.

FAITH responds~

"For if I perish I perish" (Esther 4:16).

FEAR laughs in his face.

FAITH stands tall.

FEAR starts to angry.

FAITH responds~

"For if I perish I perish"

FEAR cowards.

FAITH speaks~

"For GOD did not give us a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but [HE has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of sound judgment and personal discipline [abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control]" (2 Timothy 1:7)

FEAR doesn't have a chance because FAITH is fierce

as FAITH faces the face of GOD who fights his battles

and all FAITH has to do is show up~ "The LORD will fight for you while you [only need to] keep silent and remain calm"

(Exodus 14:14)

FEAR looks at FAITH again

and realizes his face is not the same face that entered into the battle

for he sees the FACE of GOD

who was standing there the whole time.

For FAITH looks beyond the face of FEAR

as it stands and shouts

"For if I perish I perish"

for FAITH'S eyes are fixed on the

ONE who is

"GREATER"*

than

anything or anyone who strives to get in the way.
