20 Scriptures About Fear

Every single one of us has had moments in our lives when we’ve encountered fear. This is an extremely common demon and the effects of it can be seen almost everywhere. So many people don’t fulfill their God-given destiny and purpose because of fear. Fear can pop up in many different ways. There is:

  • Fear of embarrassment
  • Fear of failure
  • Fear of what other people may say or think
  • Fear of people
  • Fear of things you cannot control
  • Fear of bodily harm

The list of fears goes on and on.

Fear is a spirit and we can have victory over it through Christ. I’ve come face to face with a spirit of fear and I was totally unprepared. Through time, bible study, and prayer I learned how to fight in the spiritual realm.

However, the first and most vital thing you can do is win back your mind. By meditating and repeating the following scriptures aloud every day, you can begin to renew your mind for victory. Learn the truth about fear and it won’t be able to lie to you anymore. Here’s a list of scriptures about fear.
