Topic: Comfort For When You Are Afraid

Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

— Psalm 23:4 (NIV)

Even those who are unfamiliar with the Bible frequently turn to Psalm 23 when they are anxious and need reassurance. Fear torments us, yet there is an answer to it. We don’t need to worry since God is with us. When we understand how much God loves us, we will believe that He will protect us and not allow us to face more difficulties than we can bear (1 Corinthians 10:13).

Although we may experience fear, we do not have to let it influence our judgments. Courage isn’t the absence of fear; it’s moving on in the face of fear. God does not give us fear (2 Timothy 1:7); He gives us courage. Fear comes from the enemy, and he utilizes it to keep us from making progress in life.

If you flee from fear, it will pursue you; if you confront it, it will retreat. Do not let the enemy take your life with bad feelings like fear, worry, guilt, or jealousy.

The best advice I can give you is to pray when one of these feelings arises (you never know when it will), and then proceed to do what you would do if the emotion did not exist. If you allow the feeling to control you, you feed it, and it grows stronger. However, if you do not allow it to rule you, it will hunger and become weaker and weaker until it no longer has any power in your life. Prayer of the Day: Father, I want to replace my fear with faith in You, and I need Your help to do so. Teach me in this area how to resist bad emotions.
