He reckoned that to suffer scorn for the Messiah was worth far more than all the treasures of Egypt, for he kept his eyes on the future reward. It was faith that made Moses leave Egypt without being afraid of the king’s anger. As though he saw the invisible God, he refused to turn back.
Hebrews 11:26-27 (GNT)
Through faith we are assured of the Father’s presence and able to look beyond fear to our heavenly reward.
Moses’ parents had faith. So they hid him for three months after he was born. They saw he was a special child. They were not afraid of the king’s command.
Hebrews 11:23 (NIrV)
Our faith is a safeguard against the sinful fear of men.
Do not, therefore, fling away your fearless confidence, for it carries a great and glorious compensation of reward.
Hebrews 10:35 (AMP)
Never abandon your confident trust in the Lord; remain bold and courageous in your faith, for a great reward awaits you.
Let us then fearlessly and confidently and boldly draw near to the throne of grace (the throne of God’s unmerited favor to us sinners), that we may receive mercy [for our failures] and find grace to help in good time for every need [appropriate help and well-timed help, coming just when we need it].
Hebrews 4:16 (AMP)
We are dependent on God for each day. Take comfort in His invitation for us to lay our prayers before Him in faith and confidence, whether during periods of prosperity or adversity, assuredness or confusion, bravery or fearfulness.
Because God’s children are human beings—made of flesh and blood—the Son also became flesh and blood. For only as a human being could he die, and only by dying could he break the power of the devil, who had the power of death. Only in this way could he set free all who have lived their lives as slaves to the fear of dying.
Hebrews 2:14-15 (NLT)
Christ came to defeat death so that our souls would be at peace knowing that we will not be separated from the love of God. What once belonged to the devil is now owned by Christ and is our pathway to eternal life.
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
2 Timothy 1:7 (KJV)
Fear is a hindrance to the usefulness of our gifts. The spirit of power overcomes difficulties, the spirit of love for God carries us through opposition and hurt, and the spirit of sound mind overcomes our own discouragement.
Do not become easily upset in your thinking or afraid if you hear that the day of the Lord has already come. Someone may have said this in a prophecy or in a message or in a letter as if it came from us.
2 Thessalonians 2:2 (NCV)
Fear and deception can cripple faith. Pray and always be watchful so we do not waiver in the truth.
So don’t be afraid in any way of those who oppose you. That will show them that they will be destroyed and that you will be saved. That’s what God will do.
Philippians 1:28 (NIrV)
When we stand up to intimidation from the enemy we encourage others and confirm our faith in the gospel of Christ.
Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.
Ephesians 6:19-20 (TNIV)
We declare victory over fear through heavenly petition for courage and boldness.
That was God’s plan from the beginning. He has worked it out through Christ Jesus our Lord. Through him and through faith in him we can approach God. We can come to him freely. We can come without fear.
Ephesians 3:11-12 (NIrV)
We have no obstacles to God because of our faith in Christ. We can go to Him in confidence and not be afraid.
