There is a study that states the average person thinks around 10,000 separate thoughts every day – that equates to more than 3.5 million thoughts a year. Sadly, statistics show that fear dominates the majority of these thoughts for the average person. Consider this then: every single day, you sow 10,000 seeds and every seed you sow will produce after its kind. Are you sowing seeds of faith or fear?
Brother Kenneth Copeland says, “Fear tolerated is faith contaminated”. Faith and fear are incompatible. Where one exists, the other cannot. When we entertain thoughts inspired by fear, we nullify our faith. However, when we choose to take those fearful thoughts captive, bring them into submission to Jesus Christ and replace them with God’s Word – fear is expelled and faith is increased! It’s that faith that causes us to walk in the reality of God’s promises.
From this day forward – determine to never tolerate any fearful thoughts in your life; and meditate on the truth of God’s Word, ensuring His manifest blessing instead.
