Fear Is Your Enemy

Fear is your enemy that robs your mind of peace. Fear drains the joy out of life. Fear would have you believe that he cannot be defeated in your life. Don't believe fear. There is one sure way to overcome fear. Faith in God will work without fail. Faith wins every time, because faith walks with God. He says to you, "Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God" (Isaiah 41:10).

Faith understands that God is everywhere. Faith knows that God rules over all. Faith can trust God in every situation of life. More than that, faith is sure that God works all things together for good to those who love Him. Fear can only tempt you to deny the truth about God. When your faith knows who God is, fear is immediately overcome.

Believe God's word of truth. God is right there where you are. Turn from your fear to God's constant presence in your life. Doubt and unbelief refuses to acknowledge God's presence everywhere. To the contrary, faith is sure of God's presence all the time and everywhere.

Recognize that God does not want you to live with tormenting fear. Believe God's promise in Isaiah 41:10. Know by faith that God is with you everywhere. Talk to God anytime throughout your day. Thank him for his presence with you. Faith in God defeats fear.
