No Fear

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.

– John 14:27 (NIV)

 

You have a will

over your fears

 

It is possible to not

let

your heart be troubled

 

It is possible to choose

not

to be afraid

 

And God is there

to strengthen

and enable

and affirm you

 

in your not-fearing

and your resolute mind

 

Giving you what you need

as you do battle with fear

 

His Spirit will bring you

the courage you need

 

– Susie Stewart

 

When struck by fear, I let go, depending securely upon You alone.

Courage

Courage or Cowering?

That’s the choice

 

In the face of evil

in the day of danger

in the heat of challenge

 

the ones who trust

an all-powerful God

should take courage!

 

After all,

we are victors in battle

with a

Wall-Tumbling

Giant-Destroying

Red Sea-Parting

Tomb-Conquering

King!

 

No cowering necessary

 

Stand strong

in Divine power and strength

 

– Susie Stewart

 

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don’t be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

– 1 Chronicles 28:20 (NLT)

 

Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you.

– 1 Corinthians 15:58 (NIV)

 

For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.

– 2 Timothy 1:7 (NIV)
