Devotional: Overcoming Fear

Overcoming Fear

Facing Fear with Faith

Fear can be paralyzing, but as believers, we are called to face our fears with faith. In 2 Timothy 1:7, it says, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” With God’s power and love, we can overcome any fear that tries to hold us back.

Trusting in God’s Promises

When we feel overwhelmed by fear, we can turn to Psalm 34:4 which says, “I sought the Lord, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears.” God’s promises are true, and we can trust that He will deliver us from whatever fears we may face.

Walking in Courage

Instead of allowing fear to dictate our actions, we are called to walk in courage. In Joshua 1:9, God commands us, “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” With God by our side, we can walk confidently and courageously, knowing that He is with us every step of the way.
