What does the future hold? . . . What if I get Covid-19? . . . How will I keep my house without a job? . . . What will I do if my spouse gets ill and can’t work? . . . What if my spouse leaves me? . . . What if no one loves me? . . . Who will help me when I get older? . . . How will my child make it in the world? . . . What’s that noise upstairs? . . . Who’s at the door at this time of night?

Big and small, fears are our constant companions. Fear is a universal of the human condition. We all have fears. Perhaps that is why the Bible mentions fear and commands us not to fear so many times.

We can learn some important things from the Bible about fear:

  • There is only One to fear
    In Matthew 10:28, Jesus tells us, “Do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”
  • Fear not because God is with you 
    “Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. Behold, all those who were incensed against you Shall be ashamed and disgraced; They shall be as nothing, And those who strive with you shall perish. You shall seek them and not find them-Those who contended with you. Those who war against you Shall be as nothing, As a nonexistent thing. For I, the LORD your God, will hold your right hand, Saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you.’” Isaiah 41:10-13
  • Don’t fear because God will not leave you
    “Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.”  Deuteronomy 31:6

Fight fear with the Word of God. It helps to be in the Bible daily, studying and meditating on what God has said. When you are afraid, remind yourself what God has said. If others around you are afraid, remind them of what God has said. Also remember that God cannot lie. What He promises, He will do! He is faithful.
