Devotional about Overcoming Fear

Overcoming Fear

Facing Fear with Faith

It’s natural to feel fear, but as believers, we can overcome fear with our faith in God. The Bible tells us in 2 Timothy 1:7, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” This verse reminds us that fear does not come from God, but rather the power, love, and sound mind He gives us is what helps us overcome it. When we face fear with faith, we can trust that God is with us every step of the way.

Trusting in God’s Promises

God’s promises are a source of comfort and strength during times of fear. Psalm 56:3 says, “When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.” This verse teaches us to turn to God when we are afraid and to place our trust in Him. When we focus on His promises, fear fades away, and we are filled with confidence in His faithfulness and love for us.

Walking in Courage

As we continue to trust in God, we can walk in courage knowing that He is our protector and strength. Joshua 1:9 encourages us, “Have I not commanded you? 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 face our fears with confidence and courage, knowing that He goes before us and fights our battles.
