How then do we overcome this fear of the unknown so as to take the advantage God has for us? You must take note of the following truths about you as a believer in the Word of God:
1.You have the God of the unknown on your side: He is Alpha and Omega; the one that reveals the deep and secret things. He introduced Himself as the God who was, who is and who is to come. This knowledge must settle with you.
2.What is for you is much more than what is against you: 1 John 4:4 says, “Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world.” In 2 Kings 6:16 Elisha said, “For they that be with us are more than they that be with them.” The only problem is that you don’t know what is for you, you only know what is against you.
3.Be willing to exchange facts for a person. Faith depends on facts to work; trust depends on a person. The highest form of confidence in God is trust. Trust is superior to faith. The bible says they that trust in the Lord will be like mount Zion that cannot be removed. The reason is that faith depends on “fact-proven”, trust depends on “person-proven”. The highest form of faith is not when you depend on the facts written alone but on the writer. God was touched by Mary the virgin because she had no knowledge of any fact of a virgin that ever conceived before. The difference between her and the father of John the Baptist is that there was a record of an old man that gave birth - Abraham.
4.The word of God is your compass and the God of the unknown is your pilot. The bible contains more assurances about the unknown than any other book. Psalm 37:37, Jeremiah 29:11, Isaiah 43- these are assurances of the future.
5.You have the power to choose the outcome: Though the battles that we face may not be our choices, the outcome is ours. The born again man has been given the privilege by God in Christ to choose the outcome of his own battle. Your choices of today determine how your spirit will respond to the crisis of tomorrow. One of the greatest privileges we have as children of God is to choose our outcome.
6.You have enough examples of those that have triumphed over the fear of the unknown and possessed their destiny. A journey becomes easier when you know that there are fellow travelers on the same journey. Many times when you are the only one on a road, the road looks more terrible than it really is.
“Waiting,” for you is a greater role in life. May you get to fill the circle of operation that God has drawn for your life.
