How To Overcome Fear

How to overcome fear

Sometimes we are faced with that dreadful word calls fear and how to overcome fear. When you think of something about to happen, the majority of the time, it does happen. Speaking from experience, I encountered someone who had since moved on to the other side.

Expecting the worst

When it comes to death, I’m not particularly eager to talk about it. However, during Covid19, I was helping this lady who was afraid of coming outside. She feared the worst, and she feared coming down with the virus.

Lesson from the Book of Job

In the book of Job 3:25, he said, “for the thing, I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of has come unto me.” If you noticed the word “greatly.” Job stressed the word significantly, giving it energy in describing fear as it came upon him. As a result of that fear, it eventually came unto him.

Today, we faced all different challenges in life. Whether it is our health, relationship, finance, or current situation taking place around the world or in the USA, we are always watching to see what’s next. We need not fear because God did not give us a spirit of fear but of a sound mind. We need to continue doing what we are accustomed doing except, of course, wearing our face mask and keeping our social distance in protecting ourselves and others.


I want to revisit the beginning of this blog, where I mentioned assisting this lady. She was fearful that she would get the virus, it was sad to say that the same fear that she had was the same fear that took her life. She was found dead in her apartment and is no longer here with us, all due to that dreadful word, “fear.”

Overcoming fear

We can overcome fear only if we believe that there’s nothing to be afraid of. Ask yourself the next time, why am I worried or fearful? Gradually approach that fearfulness from within your mind and ask, is it real? Mostly, the fear that we carry from within us is only false evidence appearing to be authentic.

Believe in yourself, dare to dream, and have no fear. Stay focused upon the excellent outcome, and you’ll see the benefit of overcoming fear.
