How to overcome Fears

"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." 1 John 4:18
Why do you need to overcome fears? Because fear has torment! Fear is crippling! Fear is a terrible emotion that undermines your happiness and can hold you back from achieving results.

Don't allow any fear to stop or cripple you. Yes, many people have been so tormented by fear that they feel so incapacitated to achieve anything worthwhile. But you can be different! No doubt, many crazy things are going on around us today that promote fears.

Everyday our news media both traditional and social media are awash with news of conflicts, armed robbery, kidnapping, natural disasters, terrorism, rape, friends backstabbing friends, spouses killing and maiming spouses, economic uncertainty and what have you! Fears are real! But much more real is the settled promise of God to be with us in all situations and circumstances.

We may not be in control, but we can trust God who is. We may not know the future, but we can know the God who does. God's Word is given to us to uphold us in times of fear and weakness.
The Bible says,
"Thy words have upholden him that was falling, and thou hast strengthened the feeble knees."Job 4:4

David also corroborated by saying,

"Uphold me according unto thy word, that I may live: and let me not be ashamed of my hope."Psalms 119:116
As children of God, we are not permitted to fear any devil or man except God! The Bible says,

"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." Matthew 10:28
Anytime the devil shoots the arrow of fear into your heart remember that:

1. God is with you!

"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." Isaiah 41:10
2. God has not given you the spirit of fear!

"For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." 2 Timothy 1:7
3. Your trust in God will make a difference!

David said,
"What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee."Psalms 56:3
Beloved of God, don't be afraid or anxious about anything! God is in perfect control. He's your fortress! He's your rock of defence! And your present help in times of trouble!

The Bible says,
"God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof."Psalm 46:1-3
I decree and declare that you will overcome every fear tormenting your life and destiny in Jesus mighty name!

Yours sincerely,
Joe Jesimiel Ogbe
