Jacob was likely motivated more by fear than wisdom. But yet, his prayer reveals that his faith is real (Genesis 32:9–12). True faith does not mean that fear is completely absent, in fact, our trust in the Lord may be strongest when we are fearful but we obey God anyway.
Whenever you are faced with fear, remember the promises that God has made and pray them back to Him. God certainly does not need to be reminded of His promises, but from time to time, we do.
(Psalm 13:5-6) "But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation. I will sing the Lord’s praise, for He has been good to me."
Don't let your fear rob you of your faith.
