Scriptures Against Fear


Scary-path-300-webThe following is a list of scriptures on fear. Use them when fear is attempting to come. Fear does not necessarily mean danger, it simply means fear. We associate fear with danger because that is how our body interacts with our God given motivation for self preservation. When we go into a dark room, we might sense fear, especially if we are apprehensive about the dark, but that does not mean that there actually is a danger. It only means that there is an unknown, and that unknown can breed fear – fear of the unknown. To fight the fear of the unknown, counteract it with faith based on the known – the known will of God. All Scriptures are from the King James Version

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures: he leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul: he leads me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou prepares a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anoints my head with oil; my cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever. Psalm 23:1-6

The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell. Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident. One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to inquire in his temple. For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock. And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD. Psalm 27:1-6

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah. Psalm 46:1-3

Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved. Psalm 55:22

What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee. In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me. Psalm 56:3-4

When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me. In God will I praise his word: in the LORD will I praise his word. In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me. Psalm 56:9-11

I called upon the LORD in distress: the LORD answered me, and set me in a large place. The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me? Psalm 118:5-6

Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it comes. For the LORD shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken. Proverbs 3:25-26

The fear of man brings a snare: but whoso puts his trust in the LORD shall be safe. Proverbs 29:25

Blessed is the man that trusts in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreads out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat comes, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit. Jeremiah 17:7-8

Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation. Isaiah 12:2

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world gives, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. John 14:27

For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. Romans 8:15

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified. What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifies. Romans 8:28-33

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

Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me. Hebrews 13:5-6

Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resists the proud, and gives grace to the humble. Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:5-7

    brothers and sisters I just had a bad dream about my younger brother so my heart pumping the blood of fear but after reading your scriptures now I feel the spirit of power and also with the positive mind. especially Isaiah 12:2 yes He is my salvation indeed amen.

      Brian – Pray for your brother based on the word of God and not based on fear. Confess scriptures on protection (Psalm 91:1-16 for example) over him – we have many scripture lists and confessions on this site. Seek God till there is peace in your heart, and then stand on that peace. It is the indication of the involvement of God, and that is all that is necessary. God bless you. Rex

    This article helped me so much! Constantly at night I can always feel awful presences in my room and fear coming in overwhelming waves. Simply reading over these verses and praying out loud (as talked about in a linked article you posted in a comment) I feel safer and loved. Thanks for the verses, God bless!

    If you have repented of your sins and never obeyed Acts 2:37,38, you must. Search for an apostolic church that will baptize you in the Name of Jesus
    Christ for the remission of sins and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost with evidence of speaking in tongues. The Holy Ghost if the delivering power of God.

    This is a good post! one of my mentors once said and i quote “Fear is the burial place of giants” and based on my understanding the enemy called the ‘Devil put fear in our minds in order to get into our life… that was one of the reasons God said in His holy book ” guide your heart (mind) with all diligence because out of it are the issues of life. “the mind of a man is the seat to his life, without your mind being put to fear through fear or lack of understanding the devil has no power over your may consider reading this article also

    Thank you for everything Rex – The lord told me while I was reading my Bible (KJV) That I shouldn’t be afraid because nothing will happen…. Psalms 23….. “Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil” It was telling me that when I am about to die God will not let me be afraid. Thank you so much for everything!!!! I WILL PRAY EVERY DAY FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! -Michaella

      I am so so glad. When God speaks, all darkness leaves. Also, hearing God speak is the source and basis of faith (Romans 10:17). And with faith ‘all things are possible.’

      Be sure you read this – Depression Is a Spirit – It Must Be Fought with the Word of God. It is taken from the personal testimony of a very important Bible teacher. He could not get free from an intense depressive feeling. Similar to the random fear that would come on you. It would not leave him, but once he realized that it was a spirit and he dealt with it as a spirit, it left. Here is a link to the original article – Derek Prince – You’ve Got to Have Hope.

      I will continue to pray for you. Your walk will get brighter and brighter each day in Jesus Name! God is faithful and God is good.

  14. Blank Please!!!!
