We are always so blessed and encouraged when someone sends us a Bible verse … the right verse just seems to show up at the right time …
Often, we’ll receive a particular verse as part of correspondence with friends and customers, and, so often, it is just what we needed to hear at just the right time. I am always seeing messages the Lord is sending my way, wherever I go. It may be a bumper sticker or automobile tag, a sign somewhere, and many times, it’ll be a poster someone has posted on their door or wall. God always uses whatever means are necessary to put the right words in front of us, or allows us to hear “just what we needed” from a friend or associate … often during just a “regular” conversation. How many times have we gotten “confirmation” from a simple conversation with someone we just happen to run into?
I remember once, being deep in thought over a particular problem I was confronting, stepping out of an elevator, and walking down the hall behind 2 men who were having a conversation. I only overheard a small part of what they were saying … but, it was exactly what I needed to hear to help and encourage me … at that exact moment.
There are just so many verses in Scripture which deal with fear … all written to help and encourage us. I can’t reinforce how strongly I feel that the most important way to start your day is with prayer and Bible study. Even just one verse … being allowed to sink into your mind and soul first thing in the morning … will stay with you the rest of the day. Many times, someone will send me a list of verses on a particular subject, and I may spend the entire week-or longer-using those verses for my morning study.
So, I’ll share this list with you, which I received from Gregory Dickow Ministries, which really helped me, and it can help you. I’ll provide a link for you to download these below.
My Pastor used to always remind us that courage does not mean that you are not scared … even “scared to death” … courage means that you act in spite of your fear.
I hear Joyce Meyer, in teaching about overcoming fear, that FEAR stands for
“False Evidence Appearing Real.”
I hear another Pastor give an example like this:
Fear knocked on my door.
I went to the door with Faith.
When I opened the door, there was no one there.
Enjoy these verses:
Scripture Verses for VICTORY OVER FEAR
BY PASTOR GREGORY DICKOW
II Timothy 1:7
God has not given me a spirit of fear, but of power and love and a calm, well balanced mind.
I am not afraid because God is my salvation and I trust Him.
1 John 4:18
I am not tormented because all fear is cast out in God’s perfect love.
I do not fear nor am I dismayed, because God is with me. God makes me strong and helps me and upholds me with His victorious and righteous right hand.
I do not fear, for God has redeemed me and called me by name – I am His.
The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man can do to me.
I avoid snares because I do not fear man, but I place my trust in the Lord and therefore I am safe.
I am strong and courageous, delivered from fear, because the Lord my God goes with me. He will not fail me nor forsake me.
I will not fear nor be discouraged, for the Lord my God has set the land before me – I will go up and possess it.
I will not fear, for the Lord my God shall fight for me.
I do not fear, for it is my Father’s good pleasure to give me the kingdom.
I am not afraid of bad news, for my heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord.
I am strong and courageous, not fearful and dismayed for the Lord Jehovah is my strength, my song and my salvation.
I walk in the peace that Jesus has left for me, not peace as the world gives. My heart is not troubled neither is it afraid.
