Taking a stand against fear is consistent with the Bible’s instruction in Proverbs 3:5, “trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. Our own understanding may lead us to overestimate the object/person of our fear and underestimate God’s supreme power. When we are afraid, we must solely depend on God’s understanding and trust in His love for us that “casts out fear”, 1 John 4:18 . The next time you are tempted to allow fear to creep in take a deep breath. Don’t panic! Even in the darkest of moments God can be trusted to bring light to the situation.
