Luke 10:19 ESV

Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you.

Hello beloved child of God, I hope you’re fine by God’s grace.

Previously we talked about the importance of knowing and studying our fears, and breaking them down into little blocks.

We learned how to organise each fear into little blocks in order of increasing fear/anxiety levels.

If you have received The Lord Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, you should already know by now that nothing can harm you. You’ve got to believe The Bible when it says so.

This means you have absolutely nothing to fear.

Since you have absolutely nothing to fear, it’s high time to learn to walk in boldness and confidence as you defeat your fears.

Yesterday, in part one of Defeat Your Fears we took Jonathan as an example.

Jonathan is a Christian man, who has a well paid stable job and who is active in his local church. He wants to get married, but he’s scared by the idea of dating and courtship.

He broke down his fear into little blocks and classified them in order of increasing rating of fear (1-100)

1. Asking for help from a female clerk (25)

2. Eating lunch in the volunteers’ lunchroom and talking with the people there (35)

3. Imagining asking someone for a date and being turned down rudely (45)

4. Volunteering to be on the social committee at work and going to the meetings (55)

5. Volunteering at the food bank and talking with female volunteers there (60)

6. Having a conversation with a woman I don’t know (65)

7. Going to a party (70)

8. Going to the singles’ hiking club (75)

9. Calling someone on the phone for a date (75)

10. Taking a public speaking class at the Adult Continuing Education Center and talking with as many of the students as I can (80)

11. Asking someone out on a date in person (85)

12. Picking someone up I’ve asked out on a date (90)

For Jonathan to defeat his fears, he’ll have to start by realizing that God is for him and not against him, and that nothing can harm him. A few Bible verses against fear will ultimately help him.

Psalms 23:4 KJV

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.

Romans 8:31 KJV

What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?

Philippians 4:13 KJV

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Luke 10:19 ESV

Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you.

The next thing Jonathan has to do is to expose himself to his fears, while keeping these Bible verses in his mouth and on his lips(reciting them) when he feels anxious.

He’ll start by exposing himself to the block which made him least anxious. He’ll go to a store and ask for help from a female clerk. He’ll do that 10 times (it doesn’t have to be on the same day) till he becomes comfortable with that.

Then, he’ll go to the next block, and he’ll start eating lunch in the volunteers room at church and interacting with others.

When fear will come up, he’ll breathe, relax and recite Bible verses against fear.

He’ll do this at least ten times till he feels more comfortable, and so on till he conquers all his fears, finally asks a woman on a date and picks her up at her place.

He defeats his fears by exposing himself to them more and more gradually, from the least to the most scary one, while reciting God’s Word till he’s completely comfortable and has overcome those fears.

I know this strategy can’t be applied to all kinds of fears. Some fears are healthy and they are meant to protect you from sin and danger. Don’t go and expose yourself to sin because you’re trying to defeat your fears, that would be stupid.

While some other fears are unhealthy, they stop you from helping a stranger on the road when The Holy Spirit asks you to help them, or from being bold and praying for the sick or evangelising because you’re afraid of how people will look at you.

Some fears are just meant to be gotten rid of by exposure and reciting God’s Word.

It’s now your turn to look at your exercise from yesterday on how you broke down your fears into little blocks, and to expose yourself to them, reminding yourself that God is for you and that nothing can hurt you.

Now go forth, use this method and defeat your fears in The Name of Jesus Christ.


Father Lord God Almighty I thank You because I can defeat all my fears through Christ Jesus who strengthens me, in Jesus Christ’s Name. Amen.

It’s Now Your Turn

What are you going to expose yourself to today or tomorrow to defeat your fears? Which Bible verses will you use?
