The Lord is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; Of whom shall be afraid? (Psalm 27:1)
"There is nothing to fear, but fear itself" is a familiar and famous quote. Fear corrupts your faith in God. Having God as your light, your salvation, and your strength, allow you to stand up, be strong and conquer all fears.
*Remember that the word of God says in 2 Timothy 1:7, "For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and a sound mind." Fear does not have control over you; instead you have control over fear. Having the power of God dwelling in our hearts, allow us to be victims no more to fear.
"Fear is exaggerated. It can be overwhelming. It always takes you to the worst-case scenario. Fear is like a fog. It will always cloud the truth. It tries to make you stumble. It tries to block your vision and keep you from seeing the good plan God has on the road up ahead." - Joel & Victoria Osteen
Could you ever imagine yourself living a life clouded by fog? Fog can be so dense to a point where it's hard to see anything ahead, behind, and even on the side. God does not want us to be trapped in a fog because of fear. He wants us to trust Him and have faith in Him. Faith in God allows us to see the light, have hope, and joy in our salvation. Fear, on the other hand, keeps us trapped, surrounded by darkness, with no sense of hope or joy.

In every and any situation, we are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus. So, there's no need to fear.
If you have any fears, no matter how big or small, ask God to help you conquer them. If anything, we should fear God and that's it. Be bold! Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might! (Ephesians 6:10)
Your Sister in Christ,
"You are fearfully and wonderfully made!" -Psalm 139:14
