…to Remind Us God is in Charge.
Fear, anxiety coupled with worry, and a poor self-image are some weapons the enemy uses against us. They control our decisions and overwhelm us with a dark cloud of negativity.
With so many “crazy” things- disease, death, unemployment, economic uncertainty, crime, violence, natural disasters, persecution, wars, the list is endless… happening around us today, there is so much that we can easily worry about.
I struggled with fear and worry for many years. But over time, I have come to realize that many of the things I worried about and had anxiety over never happens.
My victory over fear did not happen suddenly, I gained it going through a process, over days, months, and years, of reading the word of truth- God’s truth about me, chewing on it through meditation and praying and confessing the word. The power in God’s word brings me victory over the enemy’s weapons.
Here some of the bible verses that have brought me success over fear and anxiety:
This day I will begin to put the dread and fear of you upon the nations under the whole heaven, who shall hear the report of you, and shall tremble and be in anguish because of you.
Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.
And the LORD, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.
