Overcoming Fear Part 4 - Conclusion

In conclusion, I would like to share with you this simple acrostic for you to remember when experiencing fear in your life:



F – Focus on Christ, not your fears


Remember to keep your eyes focused on Christ. When you focus on the problem instead of Christ, it will be bigger than you can handle. When Peter took his eyes off Christ, he started to sink. He began focusing on the storm instead of on Christ.

E –Exercise your God-given power

Remember that we have power over our fears through Jesus Christ. "God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power..."

A –Arm yourself with the Word of God

Memorize and meditate on God’s Word so that when worry, fear and doubt creeps in; you are armed with the Word of God. Just as a soldier would not go into battle unarmed, we should not go into battle without being armed with the Word of God. 

R –Rest in the Arms of Christ 

Find peace and security by resting in the arms of Jesus. Deuteronomy 33:27, “The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out the enemy from before thee; and shall say, Destroy them.”
