No one likes being afraid. Not really.
Sure, roller coasters are fun, and we get off, saying, “I was so frightened. I thought I would die.”
It’s a game, not fear. We don’t imagine for a moment we’ll really die.
Real fear paralyzes us. We can’t think. Our body systems go haywire. To eat or drink is to tempt it to come back up.
We need to kick fear out the door. Scrub fear’s residue off the floorboards. Forget it was ever here.
Here are 5 Plans to Forget Your Fear.
Isaiah 54:14 says to live your life by God’s standards, and fear won’t come near you.
“In righteousness you shall be established; you shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear; and from terror, for it shall not come near you.”
Romans 8:15 assures us our adoption into the kingdom leaves no room for fear to linger in our lives.
“For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, ‘Abba! Father!’ ”
Hebrews 13:6 is our shout that God drives all fear from our lives.
“So we can confidently say, ‘The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?’ ”
Psalm 46:1 proclaims God’s presence in every difficult situation.
“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”
Proverbs 29:25 guarantees our trust is never misplaced when we turn to God.
“The fear of man lays a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is safe.”
Let’s review our 5 Plans:
1. Do what the Bible says.
2. Stick close to God.
3. Call on God in your time of trouble.
4. Never choose second best - make God top priority.
5. Take God at his word even when it feels chancy.
God wants us to trust him. Our faith in him wipes our fear away.
