The 'F' Words

Today, I am struggling with some internal Fears.  Is it contradictory to have Fear and Faith at the same time? 

What if Fear seems to be more dominant because Faith requires us to believe in what we don't know or can't see? Is that wrong?

Should we rely on our senses to have Faith?  What about logic?  Though I know the answers to these questions nonetheless the application to these questions are sometimes challenging.

I am about to enter a realm of supernatural experiences. I know it because there are some things that are lining up that are not readily logical and I don't  have direct answers to.  But at the same time I don't want to leave common sense out of the picture.

Is commonsense a factor in exercising Faith? (really love to know your thoughts).

Lord please help me to overcome my fears.  You have asked me to Give you all my cares because you care for me. Please take my fears and increase my FAITH so that everything lines up to your will concerning me. I seek your Divine Wisdom and FAVOR

Psalm 27
The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.
One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in his temple.
For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.
And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the Lord.
Hear, O Lord, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me.
When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, Lord, will I seek.
Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.
10 When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up.
11 Teach me thy way, O Lord, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies.
12 Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty.
13 I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
14 Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.
