Conquering fear

25 October 2023 ‘Fear not [there is nothing to fear], for I am with you.’ Isaiah 41:10 AMPC

The first lady to win a Nobel Prize was French physicist Madame Marie Curie. She said, ‘Nothing in life is to be feared, only understood.’ If you;re struggling with fear today, here are some points to help you deal with, and eventually conquer those feelings: 1) Get the facts about what you fear to take away the mystery and misinformation from it. 2) Instead of focusing on your phobia, try to shift your focus to God’s promises: ‘Fear not [there is nothing to fear], for I am with you; do not look around you in terror and be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen and harden you to difficulties, yes, I will help you; yes, I will hold you up and retain you with My [victorious] right hand of rightness and justice’ (v. 10 AMPC). Notice the words ‘I will strengthen and harden you to difficulties’. As your faith in God grows stronger, the threat of your fears will grow weaker. 3) Relax. Imagine yourself peaceful and free of the bondage of fear. Envision the positive effect on your life when you are delivered. 4) Confront each one of your fear-triggering circumstances with baby steps. Every single hurdle you conquer strengthens you. So, commit yourself to overcoming the fears that have wreaked havoc on your peace of mind. Jesus said, ‘My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid’ (John 14:27 NKJV). Make a stand and tell the spirit of fear that it isn’t allowed to rule you anymore. Become proactive and arm yourself with the promises of God. Face your fears as David faced Goliath, knowing that God is with you, and you can draw in His limitless strength.
