To Live Free From Fear

Father, when I am afraid, I will put my confidence in You. Yes, I will trust Your promises. And since I trust You, what can mere man do to me?
You have not given me a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline (sound judgment). Therefore, I am not ashamed of the testimony of You, my Lord. I have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but I have received a spirit of adoption as a son/daughter, by which I cry out, “Abba! Father!”
Jesus, You delivered me, Who, through fear of death, had been living all my life as a slave to constant dread. I receive the gift You left me—peace of mind and heart! And the peace You give isn’t fragile like the peace the world gives. I cast away troubled thoughts, and I choose not to be afraid. I believe in God; I believe also in You.
Lord, You are my Light and my Salvation; You protect me from danger—whom shall I fear? When evil men come to destroy me, they will stumble and fall! Yes, though a mighty army marches against me, my heart shall know no fear! I am confident that You will save me.
Thank You, Holy Spirit, for bringing these things to my remembrance when I am tempted to be afraid. I will trust in my God. In the name of Jesus I pray, amen.
