Are you feeling fearful?

Are you feeling fearful today? There is so much going on in this world that can cause us to experience fear. But what is it that we are afraid of? And what does God’s word say about those fears?

Are you fearful of ‘not having enough?’

With all the media reports about our economy, are you feeling fearful about not having enough?

God’s word says …

The Lord is my best friend and my shepherd.
I always have more than enough.
Psalm 23:1 TPT

And in Matthew 6:31-33

So then, forsake your worries! Why would you say, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?’ For that is what the unbelievers chase after. Doesn’t your heavenly Father already know the things your bodies require? So above all, constantly chase after the realm of God’s kingdom and the righteousness that proceeds from him. Then all these less important things will be given to you abundantly. Matthew 6:31-33 TPT

I know sometimes it can be really hard to believe the truth in this scripture, but I encourage you to meditate on it and ask God to give you faith to believe it.

Are you fearful of anxiety overtaking you?

Are you feeling fearful, that you are loosing your grip on reality, that anxiety is taking over?

God’s word says …

He offers a resting place for me in his luxurious love.
His tracks take me to an oasis of peace, the quiet brook of bliss.
That’s where he restores and revives my life.
He opens before me pathways to God’s pleasure
and leads me along in his footsteps of righteousness
so that I can bring honor to his name.
Psalm 23:2-3 TPT

And remember Jesus left us with His peace …

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 and do not be afraid. John 14:27 NIV

Are you fearful of loneliness?

Are you fearful of being alone and having to face things by yourself?

God’s word says …

Lord, even when your path takes me through
the valley of deepest darkness,
fear will never conquer me, for you already have!
You remain close to me and lead me through it all the way.
Your authority is my strength and my peace.
The comfort of your love takes away my fear.
I’ll never be lonely, for you are near.
Psalm 23:4 TPT

God tells us He is always with us.

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Deuteronomy 31:6 NIV

Are you feeling fearful of the enemy?

Are you feeling surrounded and powerless?

God’s word says …

You become my delicious feast
even when my enemies dare to fight.
You anoint me with the fragrance of your Holy Spirit;
you give me all I can drink of you until my heart overflows.

Psalm 23:5 TPT

You will not need to fight in this battle. Position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord, who is with you, O Judah and Jerusalem!’ Do not fear or be dismayed; tomorrow go out against them, for the Lord is with you. 2 Chronicles 2:17 NKJV

Just a note about ‘positioning’ ourselves. I can think of at least four ways we can position ourselves well today ….

  1. In God’s Word
  2. In worship – having an attitude of worshipping God
  3. Having quiet time with God
  4. In the company of believers

Are you fearful about the future?

Are you feeling fearful about the future?

God’s word says …

So why would I fear the future?
For your goodness and love pursue me all the days of my life.
Then afterward, when my life is through,
I’ll return to your glorious presence to be forever with you!

Psalm 23:6 TPT

Our God has the victory, and we are more than overcomers in Jesus Name.

Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. Romans 8:37 NKJV

No more fear in Jesus Name. Our eternal destiny is heaven. AMEN!

So while it is important to be aware of what is happening in this world, let’s always remember to keep reading God’s word, meditating on it and declaring His promises.
