Worry and fear do not come from God but exhaust the power God gives us to face everyday problems and to carry out responsibilities. These are sinful wastes. Fear is not God’s character but comes from the kingdom of darkness.
Fret not He loves you (John 13:1)
Faint note He holds you (Psalm 139:10)
Fear not He keeps you (Psalm 121:5)
There is biblical and scientific evidence that the diseases of today are rooted in sin. Why it is not trusting God. 1 John 4:18 says perfect love cast out fear.
Fear is the opposite of faith and fear can manifest in worry, anxiety, stress, panic attacks, OCD, etc. Continual fear produces dis-ease such as:
Heart disease, skin rashes, anxiety attacks, feeling overwhelmed, heart palpitations, stomach issues such as gurt, back pain, compromised immune system, more colds, etc.
Part of your brain controls the physical response o fear and sends a signal directly to the amygdala which stimulates the hypothalamus to produce a corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) that triggers the pituitary gland’s discharge of adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH), which stimulates the adrenal gland to secrete cortisol. Cortisol is a death hormone.
Cortisol in the bloodstream causes an increase in glucose production, providing the necessary fuel for the brain and muscles to deal with stress.
- Cortisol is involved in several body functions including:
- Proper glucose metabolism
- Regulation of blood pressure
- Insulin release for blood sugar maintenance
- Immune function
- Inflammatory response
Fear is scientifically proven to be a cause of disease. ScienceDaily (Mar. 26, 2008) states intense fear can make our blood clot and increase the risk of thrombosis or heart attack Anxiety patients have a statistically higher risk of dying from heart disease by a factor of 3 or 4.
The Bible says fear results in heart problems: Men’s hearts are failing for fear. Luke 21:26.
There are Healthy and Unhealthy Fears
Unhealthy fear is not of God but is projected from the kingdom of darkness. Fear and faith are opposites. We cannot run in a spirit of faith and a spirit of fear at the same time. We should not fear, because God is with us. God said He will never leave us nor forsake us (Deu 31:6).
How do you Fight Fears?
When you are fearful about something, cast your cares to the Lord because he cares 1 Peter 5:7. He also says not to worry about tomorrow and that the birds, flowers, etc. do not worry so why should we worry. You have to renew your means through the word of God which is renewing the mind. The more you counteract the fiery darts from Satan and use the word, you will overcome your fears and everyday worries.
Healthy fear helps us avoid life-threatening or dangerous situations that are God-given. Fear is the beginning of wisdom (Ps. 111:10).
My favorite scripture is “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.” (1 John 4:18)
“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” (2 Tim 1:7)
“Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ”; (2 Cor 10:5)
“That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days” (Deut 30:20a)
