Faith & Fear

The opposite of faith isn’t doubt - it’s fear. We fear the outcome of something when we do not have faith it will work out the way we want it to. Fear is often a driving factor for how people live their lives. It affects decisions, relationships with other people, futures, and our perception of God. This is how Satan wants us to live - in fear that God will not follow through on His promises for us. The temptation to be afraid is one of the greatest tests of faith.
