22 Bible Verses to Battle Fear

Good Morning Gorgeous,

It’s a brand new day. A fresh new start!

A new day to rise and speak right back to the fear that is trying to grip your feet and hold you back from your next step.

Fear is a lie tactic of the enemy to steal, kill, and destroy that which he has absolutely NO power over!

He doesn’t actually have much power at all, so he works hard to install fear into the hearts and minds of God’s people.

Just a mere suggestion here. A thought whispered there. Sometimes he’s louder than other times. But its all TALK.

Just like the temptation of Eve. All the devil had was talk until she agreed with what he was suggesting.

Same for us. He’s all talk with very limited power.

But if he can make you afraid, he can stop you with your own decisions to not advance.

Fear can be like a heavy weight bound around your feet keeping you from movement ahead.

Fear can cause your voice to weaken or silence.

Fear can cause you to shrink when it’s time to grow.

To back up when it’s time to step forward.

To dim your light when it’s time to shine.

How do you fight back? Speak TRUTH!

Every. Single. Day!

Rise and speak these scriptures out loud. Say them when you wake up, at lunch, before bed. Speak them before each scary step. And just. Keep. Going. Ahead, ahead, ahead. Forward movement with the Word of the Lord on your tongue paving the way!

Your tongue has creative power of life and death and when you speak the Word of the Lord, your voice has authority and power!

GOD’S Word never returns void. It goes forth and accomplishes what it says!
