A Sword Against Fear

A Sword Against Fear

God's Word is our sword...

“Be strong & courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified…for the LORD your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you.”
–Deuteronomy 31:6

“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod & Your staff, they comfort me.”
–Psalm 23:4

“I sought the LORD, & He answered me; He delivered me from all my fears.”
–Psalm 34:4

“He will cover you with His feathers, & under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness will be your shield & rampart. You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.”
–Psalm 91:4-7

“The LORD is with me; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?”
–Psalm 118:6

“The sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night.” –Psalm 121:6

“When you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet. Have no fear of sudden disaster or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked, for the LORD will be your confidence & will keep your foot from being snared.” –Proverbs 3:24-26

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you & help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
–Isaiah 41:10

Jesus speaking: “Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?...Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” –Matthew 6:27 & 34

Jesus speaking: “Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul & body in hell.” –Matthew 10:28

Jesus speaking: “Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father. And even the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.” –Matthew 10:29-31

Jesus speaking: “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled & do not be afraid.” –John 14:27

“For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by Him we cry, “Abba, Father.” –Romans 8:15 (Abba is the Aramaic for father. As Christians, God is our perfect Father.)

“Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men [& women] of courage; be strong.” -1 Corinthians 16:13

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, 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 your minds in Christ Jesus.”
-Philippians 4:6-7

“For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love & of self-discipline.” –2 Timothy 1:7

“Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.” -1 Peter 5:7

These are only a small sampling of a great many verses on fear...if God thought it so important to mention it so many times, He truly must want us to hear!  So, don't be afraid He is with you & will get you through.  I hope one or more of the above will be remembered when fear begins to threaten.  If we are in Christ, His peace can be ours.  He's given it.  Have any Bible verses that help you when you're afraid?  Feel free to share; we'd love to hear 'em!
