Fear is something that can paralyze even the bravest of souls. It is that feeling inside of you that causes you to sometimes doubt good decisions, neglect to follow through on commitments and even become physically ill. But did you know that the Bible tells us that “God hath not given us the spirit of fear”? Instead He gives us what we need to overcome fear – He gives us power and love and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7). The Bible has much more to say about fear including some verses that I have listed below with some other Christian quotes about fear.
