Fear is a belief that something is going to get you and there’s nothing you can do about it.
Do you ever get “sick to your stomach” or “feel anxiety” or “you can’t eat because things are just too upsetting?” Physical symptoms can be directly related to what we think or feel. To what we believe to be true in that moment. Basically, physical symptoms can manifest because of a belief.
So, what are you believing?
Are you thinking, “The Rona’s gonna get me too!” or “This world is so out of control. I better hide from everything!” or perhaps, “I am so afraid.”
Romans 8:31 says, “If God is for us, who can ever be against us?” (NLT)
That is also a belief.
You can put your trust in fear. Or you can put your trust in God. You can’t choose both.
Now, I’m not saying we can’t get concerned and take precautions to help keep us safe. We don’t just throw willie-nillie to the wind though. The difference is we don’t get consumed by the what-ifs and the what-nows. We choose to trust in the one who created every single thing and who has the power to raise the dead. The power to stop a pandemic. The power to provide in the midst of impossible circumstances. AND, I can guarantee your physical health will be much improved or will decline by what you choose to believe.
“Do not fear bad news. Confidently trust in the Lord to care for you.”
-Paraphrased from Psalm 112:7
God’s got this y’all. Choose to believe.
