Trapped by fear

Trapped by fear

(Voice of the Persecuted) In these troubled and unstable times, many feel as though threats loom around every corner. We’re bombarded with constant news of terrorist attacks or those which have been thwarted, war or the threat thereof, the refugee crisis, economic woes, intolerance disguised as tolerance, growing divisions among citizens in nearly every nation, increasing violence and hatred. It can be very difficult to deal with and extremely intimidating. But as Christians, it would be hard not to notice the push to remove God and His Word from society as a whole. The attacks against our faith in Christ and the rapid rise of Christian persecution, quite possibly by our friends and family members.  How does one not become overwhelmed by the pressures of this world? What can we do as believers in Christ to keep from being crushed by the darkness closing in?

Put your focus back on Jesus, have faith. FEAR is a distraction to draw you away from him. Remember God’s promises. He is faithful and His Word will never come back void! To know where these attacks come from and why, STUDY God’s Word here and equip yourselves with courage.

Read scriptures that can guide and encourage you on topics relating to fear, such as fear and anxiety, fear of love, fear of the unknown and fear of death. Read verses from the Holy Bible about fear in relation to God, Jesus Christ, and the Christian faith.

Let us encourage one another come what may…Love wins! Below are Bible verses about fear to help you overcome. God bless you, dear brothers and sisters. May God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand, guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus, our Lord. AMEN
