quotes to overcome fear

Is it possible that a man can be wretched and afraid even though he has God for his friend? Yes. We all experience fear in our lives at some point or another. We fear the unknown. We are afraid of making the wrong decisions. There are others who fear darkness and death – many live their lives in anxiety not knowing the next move to make.

But who is he that will harm you? God does not want us to live in fear. He wants us to trust Him every step of the way. He wants us to live by faith. If you or someone you know are dealing with a spirit of fear, here are some bible quotes that will help you to overcome and live a life of faith in God.
