A reverence manifesting itself in obedience. So hear, fear is respect and awe is actually a Christian virtue.

In the Greek the most often used word is phobos, where we get the word phobia from. There are hundreds of phobias.

For unbelievers, who have no hope or confidence in anything but what the world has to offer…they will have nothing to hold on to when, not if, but when the storms of life come at them.

PRO 16:22, Understanding is a fountain of life to one who has it, But the discipline of fools is folly.

The LORD God called to the man, and said to him, “Where are you?” and the man said, “I heard the sound of You in the garden, and I was afraid (yare) because I was naked; so I hid myself.”

Instead of running to the LORD with the attitude of LORD we really messed this up, please HELP! But they didn’t, they did what we often do which is to immediately try to solve the problem in our power.

2TI 1:7, For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline.

How much of your day do you actually spend thinking about those things as opposed to whatever it is that you are afraid of?

PSA 4:23, Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.

A victorious Christian life is one that not only hears the Word, not only metabolizes the word, but puts it into practice, applies the word of GOD in their life.

MAT 15:18, But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart, and these make a man unclean.

You might rebound and then go right back to worrying, doubting etc. The prescription: Repeat rebound, recover and move forward to faith rest.

Yet we who claim to believe in the creator of the universe can let that little virus make us very afraid and cause us to live in fear.

But for the believer the thing that is most important is living inside the plan of GOD for their lives.
Inside that plan we as believers we have a wall of fire around us.

ISA 41:10, “Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.”

PRO 3:5, Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.

Jeremiah 29:11-13, For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.

PSA 34:4, I sought the Lord, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears.

2CH 7:14, if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

ISA 9:10, The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycamore’s are cut down, but we will change them into cedars.

Every time the King planned to attack Israel, GOD would reveal those plans to the Prophet Elisha.

2KI 6:15-16, Then the servant of the man of God got up early the next morning and went outside, there were troops, horses, and chariots everywhere. “Oh, sir, what will we do now?” the servant cried out to Elisha.
“Don’t be afraid!” Elisha told him. “For there are more on our side than on theirs!”

That is a quite a phrase isn’t it? For there are more on our side than on theirs!”

That is a quite a phrase isn’t it? For there are more on our side than on theirs!”

After the fire a still small voice.
when Elijah heard 
it, he wrapped his face in his mantle and went out and stood in the entrance of the cave. Suddenly a voice came to him, and said, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”

The thing about fear is that the more things that acquire the power of fear over you in your life, the greater will be your capacity for fear.


The use of the 10 problem solving devices cannot be over stated. Utilizing them become a necessity when conquering fear.
