On our community prayer request post, I’ve noticed some have mentioned help with fear. I too struggle with fear seeping into my heart, encouraging doubt, and making me feel helpless.
So, today I want to share with you some scriptures you can use as a sword to fight back and meditate on.
1. God helps us fight against temptation. He strengthens us with His love.
(ES) 2 Timothy 2:07, “For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.”
2. Confidence comes from Christ.
(NLT) 2 Corinthians 3:04, “We are confident of all this because of our great trust in God through Christ.”
(NLT) Ephesians 3:12, “Because of Christ and our faith in him, we can now come boldly and confidently into God’s presence.”
3. The love of Christ helps us grow in perfect love. Through this perfect love, we also gain confidence.
(NLT) 1 John 4:17-18, “And as we live in God, our love grows more perfect. So we will not be afraid on the day of judgment, but we can face him with confidence because we live like Jesus here in this world. Such love has no fear because perfect love expels all fear. If we are afraid, it is for fear of punishment, and this shows that we have not fully experienced his perfect love.”
4. God will provide for us.
(NLT) Psalm 112:07, “They do not fear bad news; they confidently trust the LORD to care for them.”
What scriptures do you cling to that strengthen you against fear?
