    30 Meditations to Combat Fear and Worry


    2 Timothy 1:7

    For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

    The word FEAR could be translated, timidity, fearfulness or cowardice.

    Certainly our God who is a God of faith would not want us to be full of fear, as fear is the very opposite of faith.

    No He has given us a spirit of Love (which never fails), power (His Power) and sound or disciplined mind (His thoughts, the Mind of Christ). 

    Think on His Word and on His promises. (They are sure)

    Doubt the doubts and Believe Him.

    Trust Him, He Loves you, He is on your side!



    Isaiah 41:10

    Fear thou not; for I am with thee:

    be not dismayed;(to look in dismay, gaze about in anxiety) for I am thy God:

    I will strengthen thee;

    yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

    2 times “I AM” declares Himself.

    3 times He declares things He will do.

    I AM is with you.

    I AM is your God.

    I AM that I AM is the self-existent One, The Most High God, The Almighty Creator of heaven and earth.

    HE said HE WILL, not maybe, not might do, not could do, BUT WILL DO.

    HE WILL, strengthen you, help you and uphold you.

    He’s got you today, so FEAR NOT!


    Matthew 10:29-31

    Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.

    Nothing escapes the view of your Father in heaven. He knows everything about you, He knows where you live. He takes care of the birds, and HE WILL take care of you.

    Sing this phrase through your day.

    “ His eye is on the sparrow and I know He’s watchin’ me” 

    You are valuable to Him, He loved you so much He gave you Jesus. If He did that already, He is not going to hold back from you now.

    He’s got you, so FEAR NOT!


    Deu 7:17-21

    If you say in your hearts, These nations are greater in number than we are: how are we to take their land from them? Have no fear of them, but keep well in mind what the Lord your God did to Pharaoh and to all Egypt; The great punishments which your eyes saw, and the signs and the wonders and the strong hand and the stretched-out arm, by which the Lord your God took you out: so will the Lord your God do to all the peoples who are the cause of your fears. And the Lord will send a hornet among them, till all the rest who have kept themselves safe from you in secret places have been cut off. Have no fear of them: for the Lord your God is with you, a great God greatly to be feared.

    When your troubles, or your enemy seems overwhelming, don’t let that in your heart. Don’t let those thoughts remain in your mind ….REMEMBER THE LORD YOUR GOD!

    HE IS A GREAT AND MIGHTY GOD and He is with you! He won’t leave you, stay with Him.

    He’s Got You.  FEAR NOT!


    Psalms 118:6

    The Lord is on my side; I will not fear:

    what can man do unto me?

    I WILL NOT fear. You choose... to be afraid or not to be afraid? That is the question each time the enemy tempts you to fear. 

    As a believer in Jesus, God is NOT the source of your fears.

    Fear is from the outside, it is a spirit from the enemy of your soul attempting to steal your peace and still your faith in your God.


    Say it: Fear you have no place in me. I declare that I choose to trust in, rely on and adhere to my Lord Jesus Christ and to my Father God. I will follow the Holy Spirit as he leads. The Lord IS on MY side I WILL NOT FEAR. I am on His side and HE IS FOR me. I will not fear!

    Thank you Lord for your spirit of love and power and for a sound mind,

    Thank you Lord for VICTORY!

    Thank you Lord for VICTORY!

    Thank you Lord!


    Psalms 27:1

    A Psalm of David.

    The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?

    the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? 2 When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.

    The Lord gives direction, leading to deliverance and the strength to get through the battles that come our way. He is the Greater One in you today, Jesus defeated the enemy for YOU and sent the Holy Spirit who will help you to walk out His Victory!

    Thank you Jesus for ALWAYS causing us to triumph!

    Say it: I shall not be afraid, I shall not fear for the Lord is with me and He is my Victory. I 

     NO to Fear, fear get out of my thoughts, Jesus is my Victory, Jesus is my Victory …. Thank you Lord  Thank you Lord



    2Ch 32:7-8

    Be strong and courageous, be not afraid nor dismayed for the king of Assyria, nor for all the multitude that is with him: for there be more with us than with him: With him is an arm of flesh; but with us is the Lord our God to help us, and to fight our battles. And the people rested themselves upon the words of Hezekiah king of Judah.

    If our God is for us, what or who can successfully stand against us?    Nobody! 

    The LORD GOD ALMIGHTY is with YOU today. Call on Him, draw near to Him, He WILL answer, listen, do what He says. He will help you!


    Say it:  I will not be afraid, I will not worry for the Lord is with me. I choose to believe Him, I choose to trust Him, I say NO to fear, I say NO to doubt. I trust in You Lord Jesus. Thank you for Victory!


    Genesis 15:1

    After these things the word of the Lord came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward.

    Today the Lord is your shield, He is your defense, He is your Help.

    Today He is your EXCEEDING GREAT reward. He is the Rewarder and the Reward of them that diligently seek him.

    Do not fear....He is near!


    Exodus 14:13

    Moses said to the people, “Do not fear! Stand firm and see the salvation of the Lord that he will provide for you today; for the Egyptians that you see today you will never, ever see again.

    “Do not fear!”, or “stop fearing”

    Stand firm, “without fleeing”, stand still, we might say calm down. 

    God is a God of salvation, of deliverance, He is the Captain of our salvation, He is our Victory.

    Stand firm in Him, LISTEN for and ACT upon the direction He provides, your salvation is at hand.  FEAR NOT ...He is with you!


    Deuteronomy 1:21

    Behold, the Lord thy God hath set the land before thee: go up and possess it, as the Lord God of thy fathers hath said unto thee; fear not, neither be discouraged.

    Go up and possess it as the Lord God ...hath said

    It’s important to have or know “what the Lord God has said”. Once you do, go for it and FEAR NOT, neither be discouraged.

    Who is with you? What did He say? Will He fail you?

    NO He will not.

    say it... I WILL NOT fear. Lord you are near, I will not fear. Thank Jesus for your faithfulness.


    Joshua 8:1

    And the Lord said unto Joshua, Fear not, neither be thou dismayed: take all the people of war with thee, and arise, go up to Ai: see, I have given into thy hand the king of Ai, and his people, and his city, and his land:

    Two things to notice;

    1. “And the Lord said”. You will see as you go through these scripture readings how often this phrase is included. It’s important to recognize we need to be listening and hearing from the Lord all the time. Faith (the opposite of fear) comes by “hearing” the Word not “having heard”. Listening, hearing and acting on the Word is a required, 

    repetitive process.

    Take time, let the Lord speak to you. Enter into His gates with thanksgiving...praise Him, worship Him, listen and act.

    Part 2 tomorrow 

    Fear not


    Joshua 8:1 (part 2)

    And the Lord said unto Joshua, Fear not, neither be thou dismayed: take all the people of war with thee, and arise, go up to Ai: see, I have given into thy hand the king of Ai, and his people, and his city, and his land:


    A sudden or complete loss of courage and firmness in the face of trouble or danger; overwhelming and disabling terror; a sinking of the spirits; consternation. 

    The Amp. Bible uses the word “intimidated” for dismayed.

    Another source says it means to be afraid of something you can’t see. 

    Sometimes we see “the giants”, sometimes it’s the threats of the enemy. No matter, we still need not fear for God is with us.

    Doubt your doubts, Trust your Father God.


    Deuteronomy 20:3-4

    And shall say unto them, Hear, O Israel, ye approach this day unto battle against your enemies: let not your hearts faint, fear not, and do not tremble, neither be ye terrified because of them; For the Lord your God is he that goeth with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.

    The Lord your God is with you, He will help you. He has the battle plan. His help and your victory is there in your obedience to His instructions. 



    Deuteronomy 31:6

    Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.

    Malachi 3:6

    For I am the Lord, I change not;...

    He doesn’t change and neither will His Word. If He said, He will go with you, not fail you, nor forsake you, you can take that to the bank.

    Fear Not, stay calm, stay close to Him. He WILL see you through.


    1 Kings 17:13

    And Elijah said unto her, Fear not; go and do as thou hast said: but make me thereof a little cake first, and bring it unto me, and after make for thee and for thy son.

    King Jehoshaphat made the statement to his people in regard to a prophetic word before entering a battle; “believe His prophet and so shall you profit”. Mary told the servants to “do whatever he (Jesus) says”. Our obedience gives God the right to enter our circumstances with us. When that happens miracles happen and answers come.

    Fear Not ... Do what He says ...He is faithful.


    2 Timothy 1:7

    For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

    We need not fear because He gave us a Spirit of power.

    This power is dunamis, the root for our English word for “dynamite”. 

    It is defined as, inherent power, power residing in a thing by virtue of its nature.

    Eph. 4:24 tells us the new man, the new creation is created in the image of God, We have been made partakers of the Divine nature through the precious promises of God.

    We have indeed been given a Spirit of power.

    Thank you Jesus, help us Lord to grasp what you have in mind for us. Thank you for the Holy Spirit who is with us and in us.

    Thank you, thank you Jesus.

    Say it; I will not fear, the power of God is available to me. Thank you Lord Jesus!


    2 Timothy 1:7

    For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

    Luke 24:49

    And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.

    Jesus secured the Promise of the Father, the Holy Spirit for us. He did it to empower us. He did it so we could have the abilities of the Holy Spirit available to us, for living life in Him and for accomplishing His purposes.

    Say it again, 

    I will not fear I have the power, the strength and ability of the Holy Spirit available to me. He is with me and He will help me.


    2 Timothy 1:7

    For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

    Power as defined in Strongs Dictionary;

    1.strength power, ability 

       A. inherent power, power residing in a thing by virtue of its nature, or which a person or thing exerts and puts forth

       B. power for performing miracles 

       C. moral power and excellence of soul 

       D. the power and influence which belong to riches and wealth

       E. power and resources arising from numbers 

       F. power consisting in or resting upon armies, forces, hosts

    I share this definition just to draw attention to the many ways the power of God can be involved in our lives.

    Say it with me; 

    I will not fear the Lord and His power are with me today.


    2 Timothy 1:7

    For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

    God HAS GIVEN the Spirit of power, and ol love, and a sound mind.

    God HAS GIVEN to us.

    God HAS GIVEN to you ...!

    Say it, God has given me the Spirit of power, the Spirit of love and the Spirit of a sound mind. Think on that, let it settle into your heart. 

      Lord help us to allow your Truth to be engrafted into our hearts. We surrender our thoughts of inability “The I can’t do that thoughts”, we surrender our fears and our doubts to You Lord in Jesus Name.

     Thank you for power, love and a sound mind. Thank you Jesus...Thank you Lord 


    2 Timothy 1:7

    For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

    1 John 4:18

    There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

    Love and fear DO NOT mix.

    Love, perfect love casts out fear.


    Remember You HAVE BEEN GIVEN the Spirit of Love. The Spirit of Love is not an emotion, not just a feeling but a Spirit, the Spirit of Love. God is Love. God is a Spirit. He is a Spirit of Love.

    He loves with a perfect love. He loves you perfectly, with perfect love.

    Rest in that. 

    Fear Not


    1 John 4:18

    There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

    God’s love is perfect, everything about God is perfect. There are no flaws. Thank God this is so.

    BUT the word “perfect” in this verse could be translated “mature” or “of full age”. We grow in our understanding and in our comprehension of His love for us, and as we do we become more confident. The more wrapped up we become in Him and His love the less fear has a place to get a hold in us.

    He has given us the Spirit of love. His love is in us, it works through us and at the same time ministers to us.

    He loves you.

    Fear Not 


    2 Timothy 1:7

    For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

     We’ve been given a sound mind, that is a disciplined or self-controlled mind. We choose what thoughts to think. We choose to dwell on the “good things” or the doubts or fears. 

     We are told to guard our hearts. What we allow to enter our minds gets into our hearts.

     When fear and doubt knock on the door don’t open the door.

     When fear knocks declare your faith. Declare what your Father says about the situation.


    Say it;  Fear get out of my head, get out of my thoughts. Doubt get out in Jesus Name!  Father I thank your for your Word that says ........ and I thank you for your promise to ......... Father thank you for your faithfulness. Thank you for my answer. Thank you in Jesus Name.

    Fear Not 


    Romans 8:15

    For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

     You and I do not have to live our lives in bondage to fear. We do not and should not live our lives in dread that the “other shoe is going drop” or “something bad might happen”. Worry, dread, and anxiety are all different levels of fear. 

      This scripture tells us God is our Father, our Abba, our Daddy. He cares for you, yes YOU. Right now this very moment, He loves YOU call on Him He will help you.

    Fear Not 


    Psalms 34:3-4

    O magnify the Lord with me,

    and let us exalt his name together.

    I sought the Lord, and he heard me,

    and delivered me from all my fears.

     Magnify Him today. Expand your view of Him. Let Him, the Lord be the only thing before you. Picture only Him. Believe in Him only.

     He has and will continue to deliver from all fear. 

     He hears us when we call and He delivers.

     Call on Jesus. Rest in the care of your Father in heaven.

    Fear Not 


    Joshua 1:9

    Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

    Ephesians 6:10

    Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

     BE strong. Be of good courage. BE not afraid. Be strong IN the Lord and IN the power of His might... WHY?  Because the Lord thy God is with you wherever you go.... and He won’t leave or forsake you!   Fear Not!


    Deuteronomy 31:8

    And the LORD, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.”

    John 14:16-17

    And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.

    He goes before you, He is with you, abiding with you forever. He dwells with and in you. You know Him.

    Fear Not 


    John 14:27

    Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

    John 16:33

    These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”

    “Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”

    You and I can let trouble and fear into our hearts or keep it out. We are the “gate keepers”. We choose who and what we listen to. Listening to the things He has spoken brings us His peace. Thanksgiving and praise are two great ways to resist fear when it comes.

    Begin right now to thank Him for His presence.

    Have a great day and Do Not Fear.


    Matthew 6:25-32

    Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? -- Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

    “Take no thought”

    “ which of you by taking thought?”  In other words don’t take thought (anxious or worried thought) because it won’t change anything anyway.

    Then again, “take no anxious thought” ... but this time He shows us how we “take” the thought, how we make ours ... “ take no thought SAYING”. What we think about becomes what we believe and speak and then do and have. If you think worried thoughts, resist them, arrest them and speak faith. Speak praise, speak thanksgiving but do not speak the worry or fear.

    Say it, Lord Jesus I will not fear You are here with me and together we have this. Thank you Lord for direction and VICTORY!!


    Psalms 56:11

    In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid

    what man can do unto me.

    Putting our trust in God is a choice, it is an act of our will. If we have chosen as the psalmist did to put our trust in God, in His Word then we also can chose, “will” to not be afraid. 

    Resist the temptation to fear and ‘faith on’ in Jesus.



    Romans 8:31

    What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?

    Psalms 118:6

    The LORD is on my side; I will not fear:

    what can man do unto me?

    Because we can answer the question from our verse in Romans in the affirmative with our verse in Psalms 118.

    We need not fear. There is no one that can successfully stand against us. As one man put it, “Jesus and me, we are a majority “.
