Faith during confusion and fear

Isaiah 41:13 " For I am the LORD, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you." Whatever you face, put your trust in the Lord. His promises are for you!
The place of confusion is not a place the Lord would have us to remain in. Yet, confusion can for a moment drive us to our knees to seek the Lord for direction. He is not the author of confusion, but He is the author and finisher of our faith! When you are fearful, unsure of what to do, faith is the key. The Word says, "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, lean not to thine own understanding but in all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy path." What a beautiful promise from the Word of God! As you pray, leave your fears at His feet. Then, get up and continue to create an atmosphere where His promises reign over your situation.
Trust and faith are key. But, what if your trust and faith is low? Reading the Word, finding promises of God and saying them out loud helps to increase our faith. Praising God, worshiping Him by listening to Christian music helps to build faith as well. Hearing songs where people declare their testimony and God's goodness strengthens us as we listen. When we sing along, we are coming into agreement with that testimony and speaking the Word over ourselves and into our own lives. In Revelation, the Word says, "They overcame the enemy by the Word of their testimony and the blood of the Lamb."
Strengthen yourself with the tools He has provided- prayer, worship, praise and reading the Word. As you declare His promises, You will see change in His time and discover for yourself that you can trust in Him to deliver you.
Love you!! May Christ reign in your life today and bring you peace, freedom and strength for the battle. The battle is not Yours, it's the Lord's. Do your part to make Him King of your life!
