How do you overcome fear biblically?
Fear and anxiety can torment our minds. It is so easy to feel scared about situations that we have no control over. It’s hard to let go of situations where the end is unknown. As a mom, this is something that I struggle with quite often. How easy it is to worry about the safety of our kids (and by kids, I mean my adult children too). It could be anything from the decisions they are making and the difficulties they are facing, to the financial struggles they are dealing with and much more!
I remember a time where I had good reason to fear. My son and his wife, and their two precious little ones, are in the Philippines, where they serve as missionaries. They were right near the area of a typhoon that killed an estimated 10,000 people. It hit a little bit north of them, and they ended up just getting some of the rain and wind from it. However, we didn’t know what would happen, as the typhoon was heading their way!
When I heard about this, I had to choose how I was going to handle my fear and anxiety. I had to learn how to resist fear. So how do you stop fear biblically?
4 Biblical Ways To Overcome Fear And Anxiety
1. Choose to trust God, rather than dwell on the fear and worry.
2. How does the Bible say to overcome fear and anxiety?
What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee. Psalms 56:3
3. Pray against anxiety and fear!
Do you wonder how you can pray away anxiety? Or do you ask “How do I cast anxiety to God?”
4. Give thanks as a way to handle the fear.
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. Philippians. 4:6

I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your
website? Its very well written; I love what youve
got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with
it better. Youve got an awful lot of text
for only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
Normally I do not learn post on blogs, but I would like to say
that this write-up very pressured me to take a look at and do
so! Your writing taste has been surprised me. Thank you, quite great article.
Thanks for sharing your info. I truly appreciate your efforts and I will be waiting
for your further write ups thanks once again. adreamoftrains web
This is such a sad thing! I’m sure, like you said, that the missionaries there, including my son, will have new doors opened for them to minister and share the Gospel.
I still struggle with the fear off and on – that’s why I wrote the post! I had to “talk” to myself about handling it the right way. 🙂
What a great reminder. Thank you for sharing!

So thankful your son and his family are ok. They will have much opportunity to serve and care and share the gospel in wake of this devastating tragedy.
Thank you for sharing about fear. It is something I struggle with still, even though I’ve never had to face knowing my family was in the path of a typhoon!
I am always encourged when I visit here.
