God does not want His children to live in a state of fear or anxiety — He has promised never to leave us or forsake us —– Jesus has all power in heaven and on earth — this means that Jesus can fix everything that causes fear or anxiety if only we will release our cares to Him, trust in Him and wait on Him to move in our lives.
If fear torments us, we need to stop focusing on the fear itself and what is causing the fear, and we need to begin focusing on God’s great love for us —– The way to focus on God’s great love for us is to get into The Word of God (The Bible) and believe that The Word will help us get rid of every fear because The Word of God is God’s perfect love for us in written form and in a language we humans can understand.
When fear comes, we need to combat it …. to fight against it …. by repeating God’s Words over and over and over again …. Here are a few of God’s Words that can be used in the fight against fear and anxiety:
“God is on my side! (Psalm 118:6 and Hebrews 13:6)
“Since God is for me, who can stand against me?” ( Romans 8:31)
“No weapon turned against me will succeed!” (Isaiah 54:17)
“My God will supply all my needs!” (Phillipians 4:19)
“The Holy Spirit is guiding me toward the truth!” (John 16:13)
“Greater is He who is in me than He who is in the world!” (1 John 4:4)
When you understand how much God loves you, there is no more room for fear to stay with you; It has to leave you alone in Jesus’ Name.
