The one thing that always comforts me when these thoughts come to me, is the Word of God that has been placed in my heart. Did you know that there are over 365 scriptures in the Bible that reference not to fear? Now tell me that God was not there for you at the last instance you were exposed to fear. He knew we were going to have issues in this area or He wouldn’t have made so may reference in the Bible.
One thing is for sure, if you believe every word in the Bible is total truth, you have no reason to fear any person, thing, or situation. Jesus tells us in John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” I take Him at His Word. If you read the scriptures before this passage you will find that the Holy Spirit is there at all times to comfort us and remind us of His Word.
