On CONQUERING fear

 

Psalm 91:5

King James Version

5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; 

nor for the arrow that flieth by day;


What is man terrified of?

What causes him sleepless nights?

Are we afraid of bullies, bullets, death, debt, poverty?

Are we afraid of threats to our life, limb, and property?

Are we afraid of the unknown, or the unseen?

Or have we put our faith in JESUS, Who we can rely on?

A born again knows Whom to trust.

We know what to believe in.

Our confidence is in the LORD.

Our strength comes from His WORD.

Let these verses help you conquer fear of ANY, and EVERY sort:

Psalm 27:1-3

King James Version

27 The Lord is my light and my salvation; 

whom shall I fear? 

the Lord is the strength of my life; 

of whom shall I be afraid?

2 When the wicked, 

even mine enemies and my foes, 

came upon me to eat up my flesh, 

they stumbled and fell.

3 Though an host should encamp against me, 

my heart shall not fear: 

though war should rise against me, 

in this will I be confident.


Psalm 34:4

King James Version

4 I sought the Lord, and he heard me, 

and delivered me from all my fears.


Psalm 56:1-4

King James Version

56 Be merciful unto me, O God: 

for man would swallow me up; 

he fighting daily oppresseth me.

2 Mine enemies would daily swallow me up: 

for they be many that fight against me, 

O thou most High.

3 What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.

4 In God I will praise his word, 

in God I have put my trust; 

I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.


Psalm 118:5

King James Version

5 I called upon the Lord in distress: 

the Lord answered me, 

and set me in a large place.


Isaiah 41:10-13

King James Version

10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: 

be not dismayed; for I am thy God: 

I will strengthen thee; 

yea, I will help thee; 

yea, I will uphold thee 

with the right hand of my righteousness.

11 Behold, 

all they that were incensed against thee 

shall be ashamed and confounded: 

they shall be as nothing; 

and they that strive with thee shall perish.

12 Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, 

even them that contended with thee: 

they that war against thee shall be as nothing, 

and as a thing of nought.

13 For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, 

saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.


Isaiah 43:1-3

King James Version

43 But now thus saith the Lord 

that created thee, O Jacob, 

and he that formed thee, O Israel, 

Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, 

I have called thee by thy name; 

thou art mine.

2 When thou passest through the waters, 

I will be with thee; 

and through the rivers, 

they shall not overflow thee: 

when thou walkest through the fire, 

thou shalt not be burned; 

neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.

3 For I am the Lord thy God, 

the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: 

I gave Egypt for thy ransom, 

Ethiopia and Seba for thee.


Matthew 10:29-31

King James Version

29 Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? 

and one of them shall not fall on the ground 

without your Father.

30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.

31 Fear ye not therefore, 

ye are of more value than many sparrows.


Luke 12:11-12

King James Version

11 And when they bring you unto the synagogues, 

and unto magistrates, and powers, 

take ye no thought how or what thing 

ye shall answer, or what ye shall say:

12 For the Holy Ghost shall teach you 

in the same hour what ye ought to say.


John 16:33

King James Version

33 These things I have spoken unto you, 

that in me ye might have peace. 

In the world ye shall have tribulation: 

but be of good cheer; 

I have overcome the world.


Romans 8:14-15

King James Version

14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, 

they are the sons of God.

15 For ye have not received 

the spirit of bondage again to fear; 

but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, 

whereby we cry, Abba, Father.


Romans 8:35-39

King James Version

35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? 

shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, 

or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

36 As it is written, 

For thy sake we are killed all the day long; 

we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

37 Nay, in all these things 

we are more than conquerors 

through him that loved us.

38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, 

nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, 

nor things present, nor things to come,

39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, 

shall be able to separate us from the love of God, 

which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.


1 Corinthians 14:33

King James Version

33 For God is not the author of confusion, 

but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.


Philippians 4:6-7

King James Version

6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing 

by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving 

let your requests be made known unto God.

7 And the peace of God, 

which passeth all understanding, 

shall keep your hearts and minds 

through Christ Jesus.


2 Timothy 1:7

King James Version

7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; 

but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.


Hebrews 2:14-15

King James Version

14 Forasmuch then as the children 

are partakers of flesh and blood, 

he also himself likewise took part of the same; 

that through death he might destroy him 

that had the power of death, that is, the devil;

15 And deliver them who through fear of death 

were all their lifetime subject to bondage.


1 Peter 5:6-7

King James Version

6 Humble yourselves therefore 

under the mighty hand of God, 

that he may exalt you in due time:

7 Casting all your care upon him; 

for he careth for you.


1 Peter 5:8-9

King James Version

8 Be sober, be vigilant; 

because your adversary the devil, 

as a roaring lion, walketh about, 

seeking whom he may devour:

9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, 

knowing that the same afflictions 

are accomplished in your brethren 

that are in the world.


1 Peter 5:10-11

King James Version

10 But the God of all grace, 

who hath called us 

unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, 

after that ye have suffered a while, 

make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.

11 To him be glory and dominion 

for ever and ever. 

Amen.


1 John 4:1

King James Version

4 Beloved, 

believe not every spirit, 

but try the spirits whether they are of God: 

because many false prophets are gone out 

into the world.


1 John 4:15-16

King James Version

15 Whosoever shall confess 

that Jesus is the Son of God, 

God dwelleth in him, and he in God.

16 And we have known and believed 

the love that God hath to us. 

God is love; and he that dwelleth in love 

dwelleth in God, and God in him.


1 John 4:17-18

King James Version

17 Herein is our love made perfect, 

that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: 

because as he is, so are we in this world.

18 There is no fear in love; 

but perfect love casteth out fear: 

because fear hath torment. 

He that feareth is not made perfect in love.


Believers do not fear man.

Psalm 118:6

King James Version

6 The Lord is on my side; 

I will not fear: 

what can man do unto me?


We fear the LORD.

Matthew 10:28

King James Version

28 And fear not them which kill the body, 

but are not able to kill the soul: 

but rather fear him which is able to destroy 

both soul and body in hell.


Truly, we say, in GOD we TRUST.

Psalm 56:4

King James Version

4 In God I will praise his word, 

in God I have put my trust; 

I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.


There is another kind of fear man needs to conquer.

It has to do with the unseen.

Of diabolical powers that torment us.
