Conquer Your Fears


by Mary Fairchild from ThoughCo.com

Jesus spoke the Word of God throughout his ministry. When faced with the devil’s lies and temptations, he countered with the truth of God’s Word. The spoken Word of God is like a living, powerful sword in our mouths (Hebrews 4:12), and if Jesus depended upon it to face challenges in life, so can we.

If you need encouragement from God’s Word to conquer your fears, take strength from these Bible verses about courage.

God Closer Than You Think


God is closer to you than you realize. Here is a psalm to show you wherever you are, God is there!

Psalm 139:7-8 “I can never escape from your Spirit! I can never get away from your presence! If I go up to heaven, you are there; if I go down to the grave, you are there.

No matter where we are, in life or death, God is there. God has always been at work in your life

If you have just started to pursue God, it might feel like God is a new part of your life. In reality, however, the Bible makes it clear that God has been at work in your life before you were born. From conception to death, God has a plan for your life.

Psalm 139:13, 15-16 “You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb…You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.
