Shattering Fear with Truth

By Dr. Charles Stanley

Read | Joshua 1:6-8

Fear enslaves us. Anxiety can color our entire perspective until we live with a constant sense of unease. But fear does not fit who we are as believers. We are children of the living God, who has promised to care for us and work all things for our good. If we choose to live in tense apprehension, then at the end of our life, we’ll look back and wish we had trusted God more. But instead of living in a way that leads to regret, we can be freed from our fear now.

Identify your specific worries and be willing to deal with them. We cannot begin to understand our anxieties until we recognize the basic root of all fear. Certainly, there are numerous causes of fearful concern—ignorance, an inherited mindset, an overactive imagination—but ultimately the root of all our worry is doubt regarding divine sovereignty. God is in control of all things. We are under His power, provision, and protection every single moment of our life. Fear is shattered on the foundational truth of the Lord’s omnipotent control.

Focus on the Lord instead of on fear. When we understand that we are in the hand of our almighty, all-knowing, loving Father, the choice to refocus on Him becomes easier. But we must make this courageous decision every time we face anxiety.

By far the most powerful way to overcome fear is to meditate on the Word of God. In times of trouble, we must hold fast to the truths of Scripture. The Bible is intended to be an immovable anchor for your life. As God’s thoughts become part of your own thinking, fear will fade and faith will grow.

Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” - Mark 9:23

Proverbs 3:5-7
Says to trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understandings.
In all thy ways acknowledge him and he shall direct thine path. Be not wise in thine own eyes. Fear the Lord and depart from evil. It shall be health to thine neighbors and marrow to thy bones

Phillipians 4:13 says I can do all things through Christ who strength me.

Psalms 46:1,10
Says God is our refuge and strength a very present help in trouble
Be still and know that I am God.

With such encouraging scriptures as these they break the yoke of burdens off of our shoulders. It reminds us of who we serve is mighty he is powerful and most of all HE IS ABLE.
We must exercise patience we must be assured. We must ask the Lord to increase our faith daily. To help is to trust what we can not see while walking on this path of life that God have planned for us.
Phillipians 4 says to be positive...he says whatever is true whatever is right whatever is holy to think on those things. He says to learn to be content under All circumstances ...
When we are content things don't bother us.
Saint..remain encouraged!

Fear means lack of faith in God - even if just temporary. Let's try to focus on God when worried and fearful.
