Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. — Isaiah 41:10
From the book Power Thoughts Devotional – by Joyce Meyer
We must accept the fact that fear is a human emotion—we all experience it to some degree, but we also know we can live boldly and courageously because God has told us He is always with us. And because of that, we can choose to not live according to the fear we feel.
God taught me to use what I call the “power twins” to help me defeat the spirit of fear. They are “I pray” and “I say.” When I feel fear, I begin to pray and ask for God’s help, then I say, “I will not fear!”
Use these power twins as soon as you feel fearful about anything, and you will be able to keep fear from controlling you. We can learn to manage the emotion of fear and not let it manage us.
Prayer Starter: Father, I know that You are greater than my fears. Right now, I ask for Your supernatural grace, strength and peace in the midst of my circumstances. By faith I declare, “I will not fear!” Thank You, Lord, for setting me free. In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen.
