Well, we've come to the end of this series. If I'm honest, it's been a hard month of working through fears. How fitting for a month of also working on a series called Faith > Fear.
If there's one thing that I'm learning, it's that we will never be fearless. There will always be something in our lives that causes fear or anxiety. It could creep up in the least likely of time, or it could be a reoccurring struggle with particular triggers.
In this life, I am never going to be completely fearless, but I serve and love a God that is fearless.
I'm learning that when you know God, when you sit at His feet and allow Him to embrace you with His all consuming love, there's no room for fear.
His perfect love casts out fear.
Sure, I will experience fear in this life, and it often tries to consume me, but I serve a God far greater than my fears, far greater than my "anythings".
I was actually reading a book called Anything by Jennie Allen a few weeks ago. Funny enough, I think reading that book prompted this series, but Jennie Allen honestly and candidly shares about praying the word "anything" to God. Anything is scary.
We've looked at so many different things that trigger fear this past month, so many anythings. God wants to be Lord over our anythings, over any and every fear we might have.
If God's big enough to calm storms, close the mouths of lions, resurrect His One and only Son, and give us eternal life in Jesus, He's big enough to overcome the fears and the anythings in our lives.
So what are your anythings, the things that trigger fear or doubt? Are you willing to give them up to God and live a life of faith greater than fear?
It's scary. I'm right there with you, but it will bring so much life. Let's live a life of faith in the God of the universe, a God so much greater than anything.
This post is part of a 31 day series called Faith > Fear. You can read all of the posts in the series here.
Shalom! I'm Madi, a laughter-loving, movie-going, spontaneous-dancing, follower of Christ. Join me as I seek glimpses of God's grace in the ordinary and everyday.
