How to Conquer Your Fears

Description

God wants to cast out the fear and doubt in your life.

Psalm 27:1-3

I've walked with the Lord for nearly seven decades. I have read the Bible cover to cover many times, preached thousands of sermons, and written pages upon pages of study material.

I decided long ago that I wouldn't let apprehension stop me from doing what God calls me to do. However, before I take my stand against fear, I must first admit it is there.

There’s no shame in admitting you are fearful. In the Psalms, King David confesses several times that he is afraid (Ps. 34:4; 55:4-5). However, his confession is wrapped in prayer, acknowledging the Lord’s power over both his apprehension and his enemies.

That same power is available to you today. God wants to cast out the fear and doubt in your life. Go before Him right now and say, “Lord, this is what I am afraid of...”
