FEAR OR FAITH?


                                                    
                                             FEAR OR FAITH?

If you were to sum up the emotional feeling during this pandemic what would it be?  Many people would agree, including myself, that it would be fear.
Fear sometimes is even more powerful and the consequences even more tragic than the circumstance itself.  Yes, we should have common sense and be careful not to spread or “catch” the virus but this fear has become so powerful that many are afraid to go out of their house.  They are afraid to go to church because the churches are also following the required mask wearing and social distancing. 
Fear is the absence of faith.  It was fear worldwide that caused the world to be shut down.  We must not let fear overtake us or we will succumb to some things that are even more tragic such as suicide.  People need hope at this time more than ever.  The following is a list of ten Bible verses that I hope will encourage you to trust in God at all times and in every circumstance.

CREATED IN GOD'S IMAGE

We are created in the image of God.  We are a resemblance of God created to manifest His glory thoughout the earth.  When God created Adam and Eve, it appeared that He wanted to share His love and be loved, and He loved mankind so much that He gave him a will of his own.  God did not create robots but people with a free will who would choose right from wrong and also choose to love or be loved by their Creator God.

Adam and Eve forfeited their identity when they fell into the trap of decepton when Satan convinced them that if they ate of the forbidden tree that they would become like God.  Satan has been trying to steal our identity since the Garden of Eden.  "And he (Satan) said to the woman, Can it really be that God has said, You shall not eat from every tree of the garden?"  Genesis 3:1  (The Every Day Life Amplified Bible)

He even tried to steal Jesus's identity when he said, "If you are God's Son....."  Matthew 4:3  All the evil one needs to do is pu…
