This brief post covers 16 scriptures on fear when you are facing uncertain times. Many people find praying these scriptures out loud or writing them a wonderful way to drive the Truth deep into their spirit. God commanded us not to fear. Yet, many believers (including me) need to renew their minds often with the Word of God to stay out of fear.
So whether it is a bully in the workplace, an unexpected health challenge, or a season of huge uncertainty —dive into the Truth of God’s Word about putting fear in its place to stand firm in faith. Fear robs you of God’s very best. Faith brings God’s best in every circumstance. So fill your mind with the Truth when fear tries to creep in.
