No Fear, But Power & Love

I, frequently, struggle with the temptation to be filled with fear about many different things. This precious verse has been my strength and comfort in fighting the crippling snare of fear.


Fear is not from the Lord, but He fills us with power, love and a sound mind.

That reality makes me want to sing and shout!

I don’t need to act like a whackadoodle who freaks out about every single thing that could or might happen. Seriously!  I’m not the only one who struggles with this, right??

“…Bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.”

II Corinthians 10:5

  1. I am with you. Just found your lovely blog. I will work on capturing those thoughts and transforming them into thoughts for Christ.

  2. Twenty years ago, I heard a wonderful acronym for the word fear that put it into perspective for me. Fear is False Evidence Appearing Real. Not to give him too much credit, as he loves the attention, but fear sounds like the work of the deceiver. He twists the truth just enough that it still sounds like truth, but in reality it doesn’t pass the “sniff” test. Clinging to Jeremiah 29:11 helps, too.

  3. I liked what you sayed “fear is not from the lord”, but i challange you and ask you if god create everything in this universe, how can fear not be god creation. maybe he try to tell you something… 🙂

  4. From one “whackadoodle” to another, thank you for this precious reminder! I struggle with fear and worry more often than I’d like to admit.

    Power. Love. A sound mind. These things are ours in Christ. Amen, sister!


  5. Thank you Myra! This verse is one I claim also…most of the battles I fight are in my mind and fear is a real battle. Thank God we have the victory!!

  6. OK, this is the 3rd time today that God has spoken to me!!! I’m a sitting here in amazement. I shouldn’t be, cause I know this is what God does, but here I am, amazed again at God!
    This ‘bringing into captivity’ scripture is what I woke up with on my heart, knowing I would need to do jusr that today.
    Thank you for sharing … it’s a confirmation, of sorts, to me.

  7. Thank you so much for posting this. It was exactly what I needed to hear at exactly the right time. I’ve been struggling with this so much and God has been showing me in various ways it’s not from Him. Thanks!

  8. I am with you! This verse is so powerful to me when I am faced with fear. I too am a worrier and oftentimes find a crippling fear creeping in in many circumstances. Repeating this verse to myself brings deliverance and freedom from my fears and worry! I also love Proverbs 31:25 “She is clothed in strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future.” I love that God longs for us to be so fear free, that we feel joy and contentment when considering our future, choosing to trust Him instead!
