Fear can be anyone’s enemy. Fear, uncertainty, and anxiousness can go hand and hand, causing panic and worry. In times like this where are world feels like it is shutting down, just remember God is on our side and we should not be afraid. With all of the fear and anxiety right now in the world turning to my faith is where I feel the safest. Here are my top 10 Bible verses against fear.

Within the bible the phrase “fear not”, “do not be afraid”, or some variation against fear is brought up in the Bible 365 times. That would be one versus every day telling you not to fear. Fear and anxiety can overtake your life. In these times when uncertainty is present just know that you can turn to your faith. Although all of these versus are written differently you can take away very similar outlooks on them. If you believe in your faith, then cast all of your fears onto Him. He is always there for you. He will never leave you. He is always by your side. Everything happens for a reason, and no matter how afraid or worried you are right now, fill you mind with positivity and believe.
