Fear not [there is nothing to fear], for I am with you; do not look around you in terror and be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen and harden you to difficulties, yes, I will help you; yes, I will hold you up and retain you with My [victorious] right hand of rightness and justice.

— Isaiah 41:10 (AMPC)

Change Your Thinking About Fear

Adapted from the resource Closer to God Each Day - by Joyce Meyer

With God’s help, you can move from cowering in fear to overcoming fear by changing the way you think. The Bible refers to this as renewing your mind (see Romans 12:2). Simply put, we can learn to think differently. Experiences or people from your past may have taught you to fear, but the Word of God can teach you to push past that fear. You can learn to be bold, courageous, and confident.

Don’t let the fear of something prevent your success and joy in daily living. Fear has a large shadow but fear itself is actually very small. Fear brings unnecessary torment in your life. When you feel afraid, you don’t have to quit or turn back. God is with you, and because He is with you, you can feel the fear and do it anyway.

Instead of thinking you cannot do something when you are afraid, make up your mind that you will meet your goal and conquer the challenge before you. You may have thoughts of fear, but the Holy Spirit inside of you can change your thinking about fear. Fear seems like a monster, but it is one that will back down quickly when confronted with the truth from God’s Word. Fear is like a school bully: It pushes everyone around until someone finally challenges it.

Prayer Starter: Father, please help me to change my mindset, especially regarding fear and to understand that through You, there is nothing to fear, amen.
