    Girl to Girl Talk: How Do I Overcome Fear?

    Every week I go through the “Girl Talk” section of Project Inspired and look for those seeking advice and council. I want to help answer some questions you may have about living out your Christian walk of faith and any miscellaneous topics! We want PI to be a safe place where you can ask questions and become bold in your faith. We love you, PI readers!

    Check out more Girl Talk.

    Here’s a question from a girl who commented on a post regarding fear and anxiety.

    She shares: “Tonight after praying, before I went to bed, I was dealing with a certain anxious fear earlier and started to shake a bit. Does anyone feel that way? As I prayed tonight, I’ve got to let go and let God be in control. Because He is! He knew I was dealing with this, and before I prayed He led me into a word I really had needed to be reminded of in Chap. Isaiah 41. It had talked nothing but GOD BEING OUR STRENGTH and He will HELP US! 
I give all glory to God because He was right there when I needed him. Love all you sisters! Hope this may encourage you

    I feel that most people have dealt with some kind of fear or uncertainty in their lives. But we know, according to the Word of God, that Jesus is the Prince of Peace and has not given us a spirit of fear but of power, love and a sound mind.

    My aunt used to read the below scripture to me when I would get scared; she would tell me (and I paraphrase) “God has not given us the spirit of fear, that is of the enemy.” God is for you, He is LOVE and He doesn’t want you to worry about your life. Of course, we all have uncertainties and face doubt about our futures, but ultimately we know God is our strength and He does help us out!

    For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7).

    Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? (Matthew 6:25).

    The Lord also tells us to not be anxious but instead to pray! When we do that, the Lord tells us we will experience His supernatural peace that goes beyond our understanding! Isn’t this reassuring and a great exchange? God loves you and doesn’t want you to stress, be fearful, nervous or worried! He is your heavenly Dad and wants you to know He will take care of you! If He takes care of the birds, the flowers and the grass, won’t He provide for you and be with YOU? AMEN!

    Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God (Philippians 4:6).

    We all have had our doubts, fears, questions and uncertainties about the future. I personally struggled with the questions of “Will I finish my degree?” “Will I be successful?“Will I be able to serve God like He desires me to?”When will I marry?” The truth is Jesus knows every day of our life and He is the author and perfecter of our faith!  We just need to believe, do our best and ask the Holy Spirit to give us the comfort and strength we need each day. It is human nature to ask questions and sometimes worry. But we can OVERCOME fear and worry with the Bible and the Holy Word of God.

    Can you relate, PI readers?  When in doubt, or when fear arises, think about Philippians 4:6 and John 16.

    I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world (John 16:33).

    Take our poll about fear and comment below if you have a prayer request! God bless you and may you overcome fear, doubt and worry!

    What do you do when you feel overwhelmed by fear?
