Fear Contradicts Faith

“Anxiety is fear. When you are in fear it means you don’t believe God.”
Bill Winston, twitter 10/18/2020
Now faith is the assurance (the confirmation, [a]the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses].
Hebrews 11:1 (AMP classic)
.
You cannot have “assurance, proof and conviction” of the reality of God’s unlimited and unmerited supply of love, power and provision to you and still say you are “anxious” or fearful. It does not mean you have no faith, but you cannot claim a mature faith with fear.

You cannot say “I have “assurance, proof and conviction” of the reality of God’s promise that Jesus became poor for me so that I could be rich (2 Cor. 9:8, 8:9),” and still experience anxiety about financial provision.

The same is about forgiveness of sins. You cannot say “I have “assurance, proof and conviction” of the reality of God’s forgiveness of all my sins, once and for all, in Jesus, and still experience anxiety, when approaching the throne of Grace, to ask for help and goodies.
The same with healing, (etc.)…(etc.).

Such love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear. If we are afraid, it is for fear of punishment, and this shows that we have not fully experienced his perfect love.
(1 John 4:18 NLT)
