Why Are You So Fearful? How is that You have No Faith?

Christians fight fear by studying the Word of God

 

Fear and anxiety are never-ending and in these uncertain times, both fear and anxiety are magnified tenfold.

Left unchecked fear can keep us down for such a time that it becomes unhealthy for both mind and body. Anxiety, on the other hand, manifests itself in how we interact with the people around us; angry outbursts, saying hurtful words and having an all-around fiery unkind attitude. Or we withdraw from socializing all-together and just shut down.

In either case, the longer we struggle with fear the more likely we are to be overwhelmed by it, to the point that fear controls every decision we make. Yet we must come to the knowledge that God is faithful even when we’re not, God is there even when we think He isn’t, and God will never ever give us more then we can handle. Choosing not to deal with fear will leave us in constant despair robbing us of the true joy imparted to every believer the moment we believed the gospel.

That being said the only way believers fight fear and anxiety is with prayer and studying the Word of God. Reading and studying your Bible is the solution to the fear dilemma because only by studying the Word of God can we build our faith (Ephesians 6:16).

Rejoice and Have No Fear

Ultimately, believers are victorious over anything and everything this sin-cursed, Satan dominated world can throw at us even in death we are victorious. Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection reconciled the world back to God. For those who believe by faith alone in that good news (“the gospel“), God imparts Christ’s righteousness to them and they are “saved”. In that, we identify with Christ and because He rose from the dead never to die again we too will rise one day to be with the Lord forever.

This portion of Scripture (1 Corinthians 15:51-57) is powerful and it is ours to hold on too because it’s God’s promise to those who are His. Read on and praise God.

 

I Corinthians 15:51-55

‘Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed— in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.” “O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?”’

And here it is the finality, Christ’s victory over sin, the law, Satan and death itself. “The Resurrection” And because He is victorious, we are victorious.

I Corinthians 15:56-57

‘The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.’


Here are a few Bible verses that will remind us that God loves us and He is in control of our lives through thick and thin.

 

Romans 8:28

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”

 

Mark 4:39-40

Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. But He said to them, “Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?”

Psalms 23:4

“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.”

Psalms 94:19

‘In the multitude of my anxieties within me, Your comforts delight my soul.’

I John 4:18-19

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. We love Him because He first loved us.

 

Philippians 4:6

‘Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; ‘

 

Romans 8:38-39

‘For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.’

 

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.”’

 

II Timothy 2:13

‘If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself.’

II Corinthians 12:9

‘And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. ‘

The Good News

salvation

Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. You don't have to do anything but believe by faith that God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead 3 days later.

THE GOOD NEWS

SALVATION

Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. SALVATION IS BY FAITH ALONE & FAITH IS BELIEVING WHAT GOD SAYS.

  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God...because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you're a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

'that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. '

Romans 10:9
