Overcome Fear with the Holy Spirit

Tell God about your fears—tell Him that your fears are really evidences of unbelief. You might say, “It’s hard for me to believe in the face of fear".

I would remind you of something Jesus said and the response of an honest person who wanted to believe in Jesus even though they had some doubt.

Mark 9:23–24 (NLT)

23 “What do you mean, ‘If I can’?” Jesus asked. “Anything is possible if a person believes.” 24 The Father instantly cried out, “I do believe, but help me overcome my unbelief!”

You can do the same thing, ask God to help your unbelief.

Surrender yourself to the Holy Spirit of God because the Spirit can work in you to take away fear and give you peace.

2 Timothy 1:7 (CEV)

7 God’s Spirit doesn’t make cowards out of us. The Spirit gives us power, love, and self-control.

The Holy Spirit within you can give you power for your weakness; He can generate love; He can give order and discipline to your mind. The Holy Spirit is God’s psychologist, so turn yourself over to Him.

One of the ministries of the Spirit of God is making Jesus Christ real to us.

As you pray and read the Word, the Spirit will give you a spiritual understanding of Jesus Christ, and He will become genuine to you. Even during storms and trials, Jesus Christ comes with peace and courage for you.

There is no reason for you to be afraid. Fear will only rob you and harm you and paralyze you. Jesus Christ can take away your fear and give you peace.

When fear comes knocking on your door, maybe you can say these words:

Isaiah 12:2 (CEV)

2 I trust you to save me, Lord God, and I won’t be afraid. My power and my strength come from you, and you have saved me.”
