Fear and Faith : Finding the Peace Your Heart Craves (Paperback) (Trillia J. Newbell)
about this item
We will never be short on fears. Failure, rejection, sickness, losing a loved one, being alone-the fears we carry are many and heavy. Fear can be a tyrant, a bully we can't hide from. It can paralyze our spirit, damage our relationships, and hinder our faith.
Trillia is no stranger to fear. She has known its harsh grip on her life. But she has also known the gentle hand of God, a peace and a faith from the One who conquers fears.
In Fear and Faith, Trillia will encourage you as she reflects on Scripture and her own story. She will show you Jesus, who was tempted like you in every way. She will show you the character of God and how it inspires faith. And she will show you real women who have walked the road of fear-or still are-and how they found security in the Lord to be their strength. Whatever your fear, you are not alone, nor are you without hope. You have the One who can replace your fear with faith.
Fear is not simply an emotion we feel, it can also be paralyzing, controlling, and even motivating. Unfortunately, fear is often a byproduct of the sin in our heart. We want to appear righteous, so in our pride and self-righteousness we fear man and conceal who we really are. Maybe we've had difficult, painful trials and so, rooted in anxiety, we look at the future fearfully, rather than trusting the Lord. In Fear and Faith, we will look our fears in the face, name their root cause, and learn together how to lean on the One who we can and should trust. Fear has a way of whispering lies to our souls about who God is. But the Lord is better and through exploring what the Word says about our sovereign, good, and loving God, we can learn to rest in His ever-open arms. Ultimately we fight fear by trusting in the Lord and fearing Him.
