faith lift friday ~ You Are Only As Big As Your Dreams


• Fear only sees the mountain. Faith sees the mountain mover.

• Fear always sees the problem. Faith only sees the promise.

• Fear says, "Your dreams will never come true." Faith says, "My God is the Dream Maker, and my dreams will come true."

• Fear always says, "No." Faith says, "Yes."

• Fear always sees God's fist clenched tightly. Faith always sees God's hand open.

• Fear always sees God's hand withdrawn. Faith always sees God's hand extended.

• Fear always says, "Give up." Faith says, "Never give up."

• Fear says, "Quit." Faith says, "Don't quit."

• Fear says, "You can't make it." But Faith says, "You're going to make it!"

• Fear says, "You're sick, your dream of being healed will never come to pass." Faith says, "By His stripes I am healed."

Fear cannot exist in the presence of faith. The greatest antagonist that fear has is faith.

Annie,

This is so good! Thanks for sharing with us. It is so true that when we are faced with fear we can not truly see the one who can deliver from the fear. It is so important to keep our eyes focused on Jesus!

Many blessings!

Annie this meant alot to me. I was once a prisoner to fear. How true this is. And how gorgeous, thank-you!

Good stuff Annie! It reminds me of something Don has taught and told us in sunday school several times before....Fear is having greater faith in your enemy than in God.
