Types of Fear - three steps to combat fear

What is a spirit of Fear Verses

Fear vs. Faith

Three steps to combat fear to return to faith in God. 

combat fear

There are over 4000 different types of fear, so it comes at us in many different forms. The most fearful being in creation is a Fallen Archangel, Satan, the opposite of faith. Satan knows his time is short. Faith and fear cannot coexist. They both project into the future. Faith projects good outcomes, and fear projects terrible things to happen. If you project fear, a person will become fearful daily. Fear is doubt and unbelief. So fear is the absence of faith. 

Ezek 28:19
19 All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more.

Five common fears manifest as the following:

Fear and faith bible verses
Worry: The English word comes from the Anglo-Saxon root, meaning to choke or strangle. It is the suffocating feeling of unease that we experience when we ponder a real problem with no apparent answer. Worry results in a person who looks at life with no hope in his thinking process. When he looks at a disturbing situation, he believes he is alone in his world and is responsible for solving the problem out of the resources of his wisdom. Wrong, there is always God in the equation.

Luke 18:27 "And he said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God."

Anxiety: In Latin, it can mean to suffocate, press tightly, or be strange. The English word comes from the Latin anxius, which describes an inner turmoil, the troubling of the mind about an uncertain event. Fear and worry are directed toward a real and identifiable object or an object that appears natural. Anxiety produces all the same feelings, but there is no real and identifiable object; it is possible to be anxious and not to know why. It describes a constant tension over something that may or may not happen in the future.

Phil 4:4-8
4 Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice.
5 Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.
6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Distress - bad stress: The Hebrew word means to cause misery, sorrow, suffering, to exhaust or weaken with strain. It describes a narrow, constricted canyon, which describes overcrowding, being pressed or crushed: mental and spiritual claustrophobia.

Rom 8:35-39
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Panic: The word derives from the demon god of Creek mythology, Pan, who was believed to suddenly fill people with terror. It unleashes fear and anxiety in the overwhelming flood of terror. It produces immobility of the mind, terror in the emotions, sweaty palms, palpitating heart, ringing ears, dizziness, nausea, the feeling that we are on the verge of sanity, hot flashes, chills, choking and intense loneliness.

1 Pet 3:14-15
14 But and if ye suffer for righteousness' sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled;
15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:

Timidity: From the Latin, time, to fear. This is an attribute of a person who is very easily frightened and has no self-confidence. It is the constant tendency to be afraid of everything and everyone. Here, the enemy is stealing your identity in the new birth. You have a hard time believing the truth of who God saw from the foundation of the world.

The Spirit of Fear is used to get our eyes off the promises of God, stuck looking at our situation that robs our faith.

Three steps to overcome a Spirit of Fear:

1. Recognize the lie or negative thought
2. Cast it down - disagree and throw it into the trash - 2 Cor. 10:5
3. Reframe your thoughts with God's truth and promises that combat fear and create faith to believe again.
