Faith over Fear

March 3, 2015 Riley

Fear is looking into a dark room and not taking a step in.  Faith is looking into a dark room and taking a step and realizing your foot steps light up as you advance.  You still can’t see fully but you see enough to take the steps to move forward.  We may be caught in a dark room with only a foot in front of us lit up, what do we do?  We walk.  In business terms I say faith is persistence.  As Colin put it faith should be our Keystone.  Fear debilitates our faith, as does faith debilitate our fears.

“—faith is not to have a perfect knowledge of things; therefore if ye have faith ye hope for things which are not seen, which are true.”


Would it make sense if we knew everything?  How could there be progression?  Like I said last week; We need to act and not be acted upon  The Red Sea didn’t part until Moses got his feet wet. Do you understand my point?  I think it is so important to live off faith and not die in fear.  I believe miracles are made after our faith has been shown.

“For behold, I am God; and I am a God of miracles; and I will show unto the world that I am the same yesterday, today, and forever; and I work not among the children of men save it be according to their faith.”

-2 Nephi 27:23

Let’s all take that first step of faith and see our way will be bright one step at a time!  God Lives.
