On a daily basis, I think we all experience fear. In times of fear, it is difficult to see God, and we can turn away from the Bible and our close relationships. These Scriptures help remind us to deal with fear and turn to God, so that we can build deeper relationships and love others instead of pulling back our hearts.

1 John 4:18 NCV

Where God’s love is, there is no fear, because God’s perfect love drives out fear. It is punishment that makes a person fear, so love is not made perfect in the person who fears.

Deuteronomy 31:6 NLT

So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the Lord your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.

Joshua 1:9 VOICE

This is My command: be strong and courageous. Never be afraid or discouraged because I am your God, the Eternal One, and I will remain with you wherever you go.

I sought the Lord, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to him are radiant, and their faces shall never be ashamed.

So make yourselves humble. Put yourselves under God’s mighty hand. Then he will honor you at the right time. Turn all your worries over to him. He cares about you.

Psalm 27:14 NCV

Wait for the Lord’s help. Be strong and brave, and wait for the Lord’s help.
