Prayer: What God asks of us may be difficult or uncomfortable. Given this, feeling fearful is understandable. But scripture says that without faith it is impossible to please God. (See Heb. 11:6.) So at some point, faith must replace fear. For me, the remedy is to follow what I absolutely believe the Lord is urging me to do. I have to make a firm decision to rise to the occasion. I believe Jesus is standing on the other side of that decision with peace to calm my sea of emotions. Christ calls us to walk out on faith, simply to obey, not to analyze the circumstances. He is Lord of our circumstances and can transform situations around us when we are obedient. All Christ asks of us is to take the step set before us and then to trust. We can feel fear and follow anyway.
