When I am Afraid Thoughts

Isn’t it awesome how our dogs trust us! They’d follow us to the moon and back if only to be by our side! Even when they’re afraid of some weird noise or scary person, they look to us for comfort.

In the same way, we can look to God for comfort during those scary moments in life and trust that he will help us. Say this verse as a prayer to God each time your heart is racing—

When I am afraid I will trust in you.

Psalm 56:3

Mediating on bible verses that deal directly with our fears (and saying them out loud) is an awesome way to overcome fear. God’s Word is our sword. But it’s useless unless we take it up and weld it. There are many more verses on fear— 365 to be exact! One for each day of the year. Meditate on them, speak them out loud, and trust God to help you and transform your life!

Here are 5 powerful bible verses to help you overcome fear …

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. —Isaiah 41:10

He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.— Deuteronomy 31:8

Don’t fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are Mine.— Isaiah 43:1

I sought the Lord, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to him are radiant, and their faces shall never be ashamed.—Psalm 34:4-5

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, they comfort me.— Psalm 23:4

Let’s Pray…

Heavenly Father, as I prepare to sleep, I lay down my worries and fears and in their place I receive your peace. Please give me sweet sleep all through the night and help me to wake up renewed in body, soul, and spirit. And if fear comes knocking tomorrow, help me to recall these verses and to trust in you. Amen
