The Bible is filled with verses that command us to fear not. Fear is a thief of joy in everything that you do. Perhaps the harder truth to swallow is that fear and faith do not easily co-exist. Love and faith banish fear, when they are coupled together. The article will pose a collection of fear not bible verses.
The scripture is packed with words to inspire us and drive away any fear from our hearts. Prophets of old would speak words direct from the mouth of God. “Have I not commanded you to be courageous?” Were his words of a certain Joshua. If uncontrolled, fear will stop you from become whom the Lord created you to be. If a seed were to fear the sun, it would never sprout out of the ground in which it is planted. Thus, it would remain dormant, unfulfilled potential.
The graveyard is packed with such seeds. Seeds that would have been mighty trees! By God’s grace as you read these verses, may something in you be shifted. You will not die with unfulfilled potential.
