Fear


FEAR.. Our mind gets crowded with Fear. Fear of uncertainity, Fear that something would happen, Fear that we would lose something, Fear that what we are expecting would not happen.. All kinds of fears.. If we analyze this closely, it is always related to something in future. Even though we might be the Lord's servant but still we(I) fall into this trap. This is clearly the devil's weapon to get into our mind. Here are all the verses against fear.. I am going to make it a motto to practice it for myself and if any of you would be encouraged by them please do so.

“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) -

What a wonderful promise.. We have all the tools, we just need to use them....

“I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears” (Psalm 34:4).

“So we say with confidence, ‘The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?’” (Hebrews 13:6).

Even though I talk about other fears, remember to always only fear that we are walking in the Lord's words

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; FEAR THE LORD and shun evil. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones” (Proverbs 3:5-8).

May you all be strengthened by our Lord Jesus Christ.
