God wants to help us overcome fear. He does not want us to be haunted by constant fear and anxiety. The Bible says, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.” (2 Timothy 1:7) The key is to learn to trust God in every situation because God is in control and nothing happens outside of his knowledge. This does not mean we will never face problems or dangers, but rather we live with the understanding that God is with us every step of the way and that He will not abandon us. Jesus warned us that, “Here on this earth you will have many trials and sorrows.” Then he added, “But take heart, for I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33) Where do you turn when trouble comes your way? Have your circumstance taken you captive with fear? God promises you freedom today.
