5 Stories From The Bible About Being Fearful

Faith over Fear – Isaiah 41

There are a lot of things to fear in this world; the future, finances, cancer, and death, but Isaiah gives us a command to “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). Imagine you’re walking down a dark alley at night and you see a group of men walking toward you…you’d be frightened, right? Now imagine walking down that same dark alley, but the Lord God is walking with you.  Would you be afraid anymore? Likely not.

A Spirit of Power – Philippians 4            

We have no real power outside of that given which is to us by Jesus Christ (Philippians 4:13).  His Spirit should give us confidence and assurance, because “God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control” (2 Timothy 1:7).  There is the very power of God we can access when we are fearful…but we must believe.

Casting out Fear – 1 John 4:18

Whoever loves God, only loves God because He first loved us (1 John 4:19), and “There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love” (1 John 4:18).  Since Jesus Christ took our punishment at the cross, we have no more need to fear God’s wrath…that’s why we can cast out all fear when we put our trust in Christ, and no longer fear the judgment of God.

Delivered from Fear – Psalm 34

Fear can immobilize us; it can make us fall away from God; and it can make us shrink back from taking any risks, but when troubles come that you can’t do anything about, fear can rise up its ugly head.  So what’s the Psalmist advise us to do when we fear?  He says, “I sought the Lord, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears” (Psalm 34:4). He will deliver us from fear…fears of the unknown, troubles, and trials, but you must seek Him.  God makes deliveries…delivering us from all our fears.  And “all” means all!

A Snare of Fear – Proverbs 29

I think fear of mankind is like a steel trap. When it clamps down on us, we cannot easily free ourselves.  Our own fears place us in such a snare, but trust destroys the snare.  Solomon wrote, “The fear of man lays a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is safe” (Proverbs 29:25).
