2 Timothy 1:7
The opposite of fear is not faith; the opposite of fear is peace.
At the heart of the Christmas story is the promise of peace.
Fear makes is miss opportunities.
The command: send out spies. The promise: I will give you the land.
Numbers 13:17-20, 25-31
Fear is a result of not trusting God.
2 Corinthians 1:20
Trust in God's promises.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
When we fear, we trust the problem more than we trust God.
