The Negative Faith

Faith, as defined in the dictionary, is “complete trust or confidence in someone or something.”

Its biblical definition is very similar to “the evidence of things not seen” which can be found in Hebrews 11:1

In other words; both the dictionary and the Holy Bible describes faith as CONFIDENCE in a particular outcome that is yet to be seen; be it positive or negative.

Negative feelings such as worries, anxiety, or fears often persist because of the measure of faith that was wrongly misdirected towards that negative.

Simply put; fear is faith in the opposite. A confident expectation that something bad is going to happen! Worries is a deep and continue meditation on a potential negative outcome.

Truth is if you can worry you can meditate and if you can fear you can have faith.

A major way to conquering fear, therefore, would be learning to redirect your faith towards positive expectations which has been laid down by God’s Word.

Start doing that from today.
