Fear is something that we all deal with. Sometimes it’s very real and other times it’s simply imagined.  Either way, fear can paralyze us and steal our joy. The enemy uses fear to overpower and destroy us, but we have a God that is much greater than that!

The fear of rejection… The fear of failure… The fear of commitment… The fear of change… The fear of not being accepted…  All of the above are real to all of us and we have to know that the Bible says we can conquer and overcome fear through Christ!

There are two verses that I love to read when I’m feeling scared of what’s to come.  Isaiah 41:10: “Do not fear, for I am with you, do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.  “2 Timothy 1:7: “for god has not given us a spirit of fear but of power and of love and of a sound mind. “

And then there is my favorite Bible verse about fear:

Philippians 4:6-7: “Do not be anxious for anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. “

I challenge you to meditate on the above Scriptures. Speak them out loud and memorize his Word! And then we can trust and walk in faith. One way to do that is to continuously give thanks for our blessings and thank God for working out answers to our requests. This keeps our mind off of fear and focuses it on thanksgiving!

What makes you feel fear? Is it fear of other people? Is it fear of the future? Is it worry? Is it situations in life? Life can toss circumstances at us that can make us feel downright fearful. Lucky for us, God has given us the steps to conquer fear in His Word.

  1. Declare who God is: The Lord is my light and my salvation, so why should I be afraid? Psalm 27:1
  2. Project a positive future: When evil people come to devour me, when my enemies and foes attack me, they will stumble and fall. Psalm 27:2
  3. Make up your mind: Though a mighty army surrounds me, my heart will not be afraid. Even if I am attacked, I will remain confident. Psalm 27:3-4
  4. Abide:The one thing I ask of the Lord – the thing I seek most is to live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life. Psalm 27:4
  5. Meditate on the Word: …delight in the Lord’s perfections and meditating in his Temple. Psalm 27:4
  6. Spend time in Prayer: My heart has heard you say “Come and talk with me.” And my heart responds, “Lord, I am coming.” Psa;, 27:8

When you look in the Bible for your answers to life’s toughest questions, you will be sure to find what you are looking for, and sometimes even more than that.

Life Lessons From Psalm 23:6

Psalm 23:6 says “Why would I fear the future? For I am being pursued only by your goodness and unfailing love.” That’s a good question. Why DO we fear the…

Psalm 23:6 says “Why would I fear the future? For I am being pursued only by your goodness and unfailing love.”

That’s a good question. Why DO we fear the future? Is it because of the uncertainty of it? Is because we cannot control it? I think yes and yes.
But this verse asks us why we fear the future, because we are only pursued by God’s goodness and unfailing love. Sometimes in our lives, we may feel like God’s goodness has passed over us, like He may have forgotten to send a little goodness our way. Are you still alive? Are you wearing clothes? Are you living under a roof? Then God is good. And even if none of those things are true, God is still good. You are pursued by God’s unfailing love, which means that no matter what you do in this life, no matter how many mistakes you make or how big your sins, He still loves you.

Now THAT is unfailing love.

Be Strong & Courageous When It Comes to Worry

In Joshua 1:9, God says, “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with…

In Joshua 1:9, God says, “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Worry is something that everyone struggles with. Maybe you worry about taking a driver’s test, family fighting going on in your house, or whether or not you made the basketball team. There are some worries bigger than others and lots of anxiety that comes along with each and every one of them.Chelsea Crockett - Anxiety

I am definitely one for over thinking which includes millions of “what ifs.” Sometimes I let them get the best of me which leads to chickening out or pushing whatever I’m worrying about to the back of my mind. Oftentimes, I forget what God tells me about worry and listen to what the devil says. The devil continues to put the worrisome thought in my head and can result with me second guessing myself. Joshua 1:9 is the perfect verse for when I’m doing just that. The first question in the verse is pretty powerful. All throughout the Bible, we see God test several people with certain tasks or commands. We also see that God never pushes them past what they can bear, and delivers them in the end. We need to trust God when we go through hard times or something as little as a homework assignment. He continually reminds us of His presence in all situations, good and bad.

God’s unfailing love is something to invest your trust in, so pray about it! Once you do, you will find never ending peace and comfort when worry comes your way!
