Fear can paralyze you. We all have faced fear. Some deal with it by lashing out. Some run away and deflect that fear onto others. This is not what the divine creator wants. He wants you to know that He is there at the center of it all. Worry, anxiety, fear…can overwhelm us with a thick shadow of darkness, controlling our every move and decision.
Here are five scriptures that will help you cope with your fears.
“So 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.”
“When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought joy to my soul.”
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
“Tell everyone who is discouraged, Be strong and don’t be afraid! God is coming to your rescue…”
“The Lord is my light and my salvation—whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid?”
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.”
There’s nothing magical about words and verses, but there is power through them, because they’re God’s words.
