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….
— Isaiah 41:10 (AMPC)
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 of the Day: Lord, I don’t want to live in any form of fear. In Your name, Jesus, I will pray, ask for Your help, and I will not fear, amen.
