Author: Francis Frangipane Our first place of victory [over fear] is in believing the truth concerning our relationship with God.

We come to believe He is our Helper in the healing of our souls! Author: Francis Frangipane Beloved, I say, let your fears go, lest they make you fainthearted. Stop inspiring fear in those around you and now take your stand in faith. God has been good and He will continue to manifest His goodness. Let us approach these days expecting to see the goodness of the Lord manifest. Let us be strong and of good courage, for the Lord will fight for us if we stand in faith. Author: Francis Frangipane To win the war against fear, we must know the true God as He is revealed in the Bible. He works to give us lasting peace. He receives joy, not from condemning us but in rescuing us from the devil. Yes, the Lord will bring conviction to our hearts concerning sin, but it is so He can deliver us from sin's power and consequences. In its place, the Lord works to establish healing, forgiveness and peace.
  8. 8. Author: Francis Frangipane Look how fears have presented themselves, so have supports and encouragements; yea, when I have started, even as it were at nothing else but my shadow, yet God, as being very tender of me, hath not suffered me to be molested, but would with one Scripture or another, strengthen me against all; insomuch that I have often said, Were it lawful, I could pray for greater trouble, for the greater comfort's sake. Author: John Bunyan The godly man contrarily is afraid of nothing; not of God, because he knows Him his best friend, and will not hurt him; not of Satan, because he cannot hurt him; not of afflictions, because he knows they come from a loving God, and end in his good; not of the creatures, since "the very stones in the field are in league with Him;" not of himself, since his conscience is at peace.

Perhaps you are afraid of losing your job, of developing cancer or being left by your spouse. At times all of us experience fear. But don't allow fear to keep you from being used by God. He has kept you thus far; trust Him for the rest of the way.
  9. 9. Author: Woodrow Kroll If you fear God, you really need fear nothing else. Author: Zac Poonen Jesus was always against sin and He was always against fear. He told us to fear only God and noone else (Matt.10:28). Author: Zac Poonen The fear of man strangles us, because we can never please everybody; but the fear of the Lord frees us, because it challenges us to live and serve for an audience of One. Author: Paul Chappell Fear of man is the enemy of the fear of the Lord. The fear of man pushes us to perform for man's approval rather than according to God's directives. Author: Paul Chappell Do not ask for fears to be removed; ask for courage equal to the fears. Author: Jack Hyles Fear is the response of the human heart when its one thing is threatened. Author: Augustine It is not my aim to introduce doubts and fears into your mind; no, but I do hope self-examination may help to drive them away. It is not security, but false security, which we would kill; not confidence, but false confidence, which we would overthrow; not peace, but false peace, which we would destroy. Author: Charles Spurgeon Source: Morning and Evening, Evening - December 18, 2000 The worst evils of life are those which do not exist except in our imagination. If we had no troubles but real troubles, we should not have a tenth part of our present sorrows. We feel a thousand deaths in fearing one, but the (the Christian) cured of the disease of fearing. Author: Charles Spurgeon
  10. 10. Source: Treasury of David, Psalm 23. The presence of hope in the invincible sovereignty of God drives out fear. Author: John Piper The difference between can and cannot are only three letters. Three letters that determine your life's direction. Being positive or negative are habits of thoughts that have a very strong influence on everyone's life. Positive and negative are directions. Which direction do you choose? Positive thinking is expecting, talking and visualizing with certainty what you want to achieve, as an accomplished fact. Riches, mediocrity and poverty begin in the mind. Reality is the mirror of your thoughts. Choose well what you put in front of the mirror. The mind is the decisive factor in your life, but who decides for the mind? A positive attitude brings strength, energy, motivation and initiative. To think negatively is like taking a weakening drug. Positive thoughts are not enough. There have to be positive feelings and positive actions. When you say, "I can't" and expect the worst, you become weak and unhappy. When you say "I can", and expect success, you fill yourself with confidence and happiness. Being resolute, decisive and courageous in small matters and in big ones is being positive. You can close the windows and darken your room, and you can open the windows and let light in. It
  11. 11. is a matter of choice. Your mind is your room. Do you darken it or do you fill it with light? Positive thinking and negative thinking are attitudes. They are points of view, and show the way people handle their affairs. Suppose you stand at a crossroads, one way leads to a desert and the other one to lush meadows, which way do you choose? Clear thoughts produce clear results. Positive thinking evokes more energy, more initiative and more happiness. Visualize and Achieve Train your mind to think in terms of 'possible' and 'can be done'. When you have control over your thoughts, you have control over your life. Happy thoughts attract happy people into your life. Happy thoughts fill your life with happiness. Changing your habitual thoughts, is like changing the direction of a train. Affirm the positive, visualize the positive and expect the positive, and your life will change accordingly. When there are difficulties and you feel down, this is the time to visualize, think and expect the positive. Do not let circumstances influence your thoughts and moods. By rising over them mentally, you will eventually rise over them materially. Fill your mind with light, happiness, hope, feelings of security and strength, and soon your life will reflect these qualities. Reading inspiring quotes uplifts the mind, bringing hope and joy.
  12. 12. Repeating inspiring quotes during the day, helps to better cope with every situation that arises. The power of positive thinking is like a car with a powerful engine that can take you to the summit of a mountain. Quotes on Self Control Self control is the rejection of anger, intolerance and impulsiveness. Whoever is able to rise above anger, gets closer to inner peace. Self control ultimately leads to detachment and peace of mind. Who controls who? It is the Spirit controlling the lower nature. Discipline is the rejection of instant gratification in favor of something better and higher. Controlling the lower nature is of great importance to anyone desiring to have good relationships. Letting anger and impatience run riot create trouble, unpleasant situations and the loss of friends. You don't control negative habits with force. You do so by developing new, good habits. Transform your negative habits into positive ones, through affirmations, visualization and positive behavior. Impatience leads to regret and unhappiness. Patience and perseverance lead to success and achieving your goals. Self control saves you of mistakes, embarrassment and loss.

Ferdinand Foch Focus on where you want to go, not on what you fear. Anthony Robbins Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear. Meg Cabot Fear cuts deeper than swords. George R.R. Martin Willpower is the key to success. Successful people strive no matter what they feel by applying their will to overcome apathy, doubt or fear. Dan Millman Hold tenderly that which you cherish, for it is precious and a tight grip may crush it. Do not let the fear of dropping it cause you to hold it too tightly: the chances are, it is holding you, too. Bob Alberti
