It came as a shocker to many of my Bible Study peeps that I struggle with fear.
It’s not a phobia of speaking in front of an audience or your normal sort of phobia.
It is this deep hidden root of unbelief that plays with my heart and mind and sometimes even manifests itself physically. It is something that sometimes I cannot even describe or put my finger on, but it lingers and hovers over me like a shadow of darkness.
It is high time to attack fear and all of it’s cohorts and step into the light of His grace and mercy.
Scripture Memorization is such a difficult thing for me. I see my kids and they are amazing at it, but it is such a struggle for me. Can anyone else relate? But I do understand it’s value in my daily walk with Christ and I realize it is only through the Word of God that I can overcome.
We can overcome and have success in attacking fear by meditating on God’s Holy Word! See Joshua 1:8.
Meditate means to growl, utter, speak. I find this interesting that it is vocal. Not something we just say to ourselves, but we make known out loud!
Let’s get to work!
Here are 7 Psalms to Memorize to Attack Fear
Psalm 27:1- The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life, of whom shall I be afraid?
Psalm 23:4- Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff comfort me.
Psalm 34:4- I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.
Psalm 56:4- In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust, I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.
Psalm 56:11- In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.
Psalm 118:6- The Lord is on my side ; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?
Psalm 3:6- I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have set themselves against me round about.
Take one verse everyday and just meditate on it.
Write it out on a card and just keep it with you and pull it out every time you have a fearful thought.
Do not let Satan use your fears to cripple you and render you ineffective.
Do not engage with fear.
DO NOT BE AFRAID! ATTACK!
~ Do you have any deep seeded fears? Do they control you? How do you combat fear?
