So many of us, for whatever reasons, experiences fear. It could be from something we have seen like a scary movie, or just a horrible experience, or just someone, not believing in God, and when that is prevalent, more than ever fear can come in.
It also comes from sin. Doing something, wrong in the sight of God.
So it is good to know what the word of God says, about fear, and it does require Gods word, to cast it out, so you know truth. Gods truth, in love.
Fear is not good for the soul. It’s not good, for relationships, its not good for a person period. Now the fear of God, well thats something different. Thats healthy, and I wrote just recently, another blog on that subject. Feel free to check out my posts. Entitled: Do you fear the Lord, seven reasons, why I do.
But, I am now talking about general fear, and how it can stop you from being fulfilled in your life. There are different fears, and different phobias. And I am not a doctor, or a psychologist. But what can someone do, if they are experiencing fear?
I say, run to God. PRAY. You see, He loves you, and me. And He is known as the shepherd. He promises, that he will never leave or forsake you, or me. Hebrews 13:5 That comforts me. No one else comforts me, like my Lord, and his word.
Sometimes, I see movies, and I see what they don’t do. In other words, when someone needs help, they never show an example of someone praying. And Hollywood, never goes to God, they never pray, in movies. They may sing some silly song, like “Row, row your boat,” but you never see an example of someone calling on God.
And well, God is who I go to. God is who I, and my husband have gone to, and we have taught our family to go to. I could not survive in this world without calling on God. For everything….
But I need to share why sometimes, we experience fear, and what to do. I have learned, and I am only basing this on my own experiences. But I have learned sometimes, I have brought the fear on myself, by what I am watching, on television, or movies etc. Or the books, one reads. Psalm 101:3 I will set before my eyes no vile thing.
I used to be someone who liked a good vampire movie. Why, I don’t know? But, it did start to have an affect on me. I began to feel fear, over those things. And now as I think about it, how Hollywood, even now is making those vampire movies, they try to make love, evil. And real love is not evil. For God is love. I John 4:16
And well, what I was doing, was planting fear in my own life. But I saw the error of my ways, after prayer, and repentance, I felt God telling me, not to watch those kind of movies, etc. for entertainment. So, I don’t. I know Gods voice, and when his word, tells me, He has not given me a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind. II Timothy 1:7…I believe it.
Also, something to consider, is the words I speak. Am I speaking faith, or fear?
I know, that his spirit, has not given me a desire to see evil. Or watch it also, on movies. And very importantly, not keeping company with evil doers. For, evil, will try to impose fear. So, how to rectify that? Simple just obey God, and turn from things like that. Psalm 101:4 Men of perverse heart, shall be far from me, I will have nothing to do with evil.
Now, I know some things can be deep rooted, and they can just be things, that need time and patience. But Gods word, can comfort, it can heal, it can soothe, and it can change ones perspective. I just know, by searching Gods word for any need, especially when it comes to fear, I know Gods word, has healed me. Of fear…..
Try reading Psalms 91, when you need some comfort. And here are a few other scriptures on fear, but also comfort. To bind any fear in your life.
Blessings, and Just my Thoughts, What are your thoughts about this?
Love will cast out Fear. (Only Gods love, for God is love)
I John 4:18
THERE IS NO FEAR IN LOVE. BUT PERFECT LOVE DRIVES OUT FEAR, BECAUSE FEAR HAS TO DO WITH PUNISHMENT. THE ONE WHO FEARS IS NOT MADE PERFECT IN LOVE.
No fear of evil….
EVEN THOUGH, I WALK THROUGH THE VALLEY OF THE SHADOW OF DEATH, I WILL FEAR NO EVIL. FOR YOU ARE WITH ME, YOUR ROD AND YOUR STAFF COMFORT ME.
Go to the throne of God, pray, take this fear, and just leave it there, (don’t pick it back up)
I PETER 5:7
CAST ALL YOUR ANXIETY ON HIM BECAUSE HE CARES FOR YOU.
I love this one…(Thank you Father) and I claim it!
SO DO NOT FEAR, FOR I AM WITH YOU; DO NOT BE DISMAYED, FOR I AM YOUR GOD. I WILL STRENGTHEN YOU AND HELP YOU, I WILL UPHOLD YOU WITH MY RIGHTEOUS RIGHT HAND.
A Prayer of Hope….
Father, Thank you first of that you are God, you are Lord, creator of heaven and earth. And when I see, all that your hands have done, I am comforted. For I am your child, I am your servant, I am through you, the righteousness of you my Lord, because of Jesus Christ. I thank you for teaching me, and reminding me, you are able, and when I see that, my fear goes, for whatever reason. But I do try to keep myself from sin, and from not, seeing evil, so I will not fear life, or circumstances, or the dark for that matter. You are with me, and I claim, and believe you teach me your ways, so I will not fear. I believe….Thank you Father, for binding fear from me, for in your perfect love, I can cast it away. In Jesus name, Amen
