Jack Hibbs - Watch Message: Is Fear Controlling You?
Have you noticed how fear controls how people process events and information? It's causing divisions in families and fractured relationships. So if COVID has rocked our world and many's Faith, what are we going to do when something even more fear-inducing comes our way?
We need to stop parroting the rhetoric that's been doled out by people who said they were experts. Unite your family if that applies to you. If fear has robbed you blind, get back to the Word of God. Get back to Faith, wash our hands and let's get out there and love people because Christ is coming back; that's what you should be concerned about.
Jesus is coming and when he comes, are you going to get caught being busy about your Father's business?
Charles Stanley (January-07-2023) Daily Devotional: The Landmine of Fear
Though some apprehension is healthy, fear shouldn’t be a way of life for the Christian.
Isaiah 41:8-10 - ``But you, Israel, My servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, Descendant of Abraham My friend, You whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, And called from its remotest parts And said to you, `You are My servant, I have chosen you and not rejected you. `Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.'
Since our world has many dangers, we have legitimate reasons to be afraid. But Christians shouldn’t live in trepidation as a way of life, because God’s awesome promises allow us to be at peace in every circumstance.
For our protection, God has instilled some natural apprehensions in us, like a fear of snakes or deep water. He also gave us a warning system so that we could react quickly to danger. For instance, if a car speeds toward us, an instantaneous reaction of alarm could save our life.
But a constant, all-consuming dread is unhealthy. Most of our fears relate to dangers that might occur, threatening the welfare of loved ones, financial stability, or future security. Our attention is then centered on these concerns rather than on the One who promises to hold us in His hand (Isa. 41:10 - `Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.'). As anxiety grows, trust in the Lord weakens, and we become consumed with worry.
Instead of going down this route, ground yourself in Scripture, and don’t allow apprehension to blind you to God’s promises. Believe what He has said in 2 Thessalonians 3:16 - (Now may the Lord of peace Himself continually grant you peace in every circumstance. The Lord be with you all!), and ask “the Lord of peace” to “continually grant you peace in every circumstance.”

Joyce Meyer (November-06-2021) Daily Devotional: Combating Fear with Prayer
Fear attacks everyone. It is the enemy’s way of trying to prevent us from enjoying the life Jesus died to give us. If we give in to fear and if we give voice to it, we open the door for the enemy and close the door to God.
But rather than give in to fear, we can learn to boldly confess that God is our Helper, our Refuge, and our Stronghold.
The Bible teaches us to watch and pray. Matthew 26:41 (AMPC) says: All of you must keep awake (give strict attention, be cautious and active) and watch and pray, that you may not come into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
The major reference in this passage is to watch out for ourselves and the attacks that the enemy launches against our minds and our emotions. When these attacks are detected, we can pray immediately. It is when we pray that power is released in our lives—not when we think about praying later.
I encourage you to watch and pray about everything. I believe you will find this decision to be one that will produce more joy and peace for your everyday living.
Prayer Starter: Lord Jesus, I want to live in true victory, understanding that to live a victorious life, I need to dedicate myself to prayer. Help me to watch a pray about everything so that more peace and joy will be produced in my life. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Joel Osteen - Watch Motivation: Don’t Let Fear Stop You. On the way to your destiny, God is going to ask you to do things that require great trust. You can’t have extra mile obedience, if you’re not convinced that God is going to take care of you, that He has the favor, the blessings, the funds, the people, the confidence, to get you to your purpose.
