Faith is God's antidote to fear
by Rick Warren
Then Caleb silenced the people before Moses and said, "We should go up and take possession of the land, for we can certainly do it." (Numbers 13:30 NIV)
Faith is what allows us to declare in confidence that God is with us no matter what happens. We are certain God is for us and certain he has our best interests at heart.
Through faith, we know that God is working all things out for our good -- if we love God and are following the commands of Jesus (Romans 8:28). If you are a believer, the Bible says all things are working together for good -- not that all things are good -- but working together for your good and the Glory of God.
There is no difficulty, dilemma, defeat, or disaster in the life of a believer that God can’t ultimately get some good out of – so what is there to fear, as we enter this Decade of Destiny?

I know that all things are possible through Christ our Savior. I am not worried about my health cause I know he is in control and I just have to try to listen and do what he says is best. I know that sometimes it's hard to know what he wants me to do but with prayer and help from my husband we are making the best choices we can. No matter the out come God will prevail. We must hold on to our faith.
