5 tips to prevent fear from paralyzing you

Do not wait for fear to knock at your door, take a few steps ahead and finally untangle it with these biblical passages that will help you get up.

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10

Nothing is impossible for God. If you find yourself going through a situation where you inevitably feel that fear takes hold of you, you must remember that by having accepted to walk the path of God, He will always walk by your side, and knowing him a bit you will see how nothing is impossible for Him, not even fear can bend it. Therefore, do not fear, for the Lord will watch over you.


Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9

Pray. A good resource when we feel that fear is coming is to intensify our moments of prayer. Remember that prayer has surprising powers that are revealed when we establish that unique connection with God, through which He tells us that everything will be fine. We must not forget that God's promises are true and the deceptions through which fear intends to submit us are all failed attempts.


For I am the LORD your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.” Isaiah 41:13

Resort to the Holy Bible. Personally I always saw the Holy Scriptures as a refuge in the storm, a compendium of the most valuable lessons that Christ gives us and that serve us in all kinds of situations. Fear can be easily eradicated if we immerse ourselves in the passages of the Bible in which they show us how God was never subjected to paralysis in the face of fear. Remember that through its pages we will find what is necessary to overcome it.


“Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.” Psalm 23:4

Ask for advice. It is always healthy to surround ourselves with people who exalt us, loved ones who will seek the best for us based on the love they have for us. So, a good idea is to ask them for advice when we find ourselves going through a situation that can easily end the fear by paralyzing us. It will be in us to take that advice, or the parts we need, to finally use it to our advantage and thereby banish the fear of our lives.



Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6

Take refuge in your loved ones, since they are your own containment network just as you are theirs when they need it. Remember that fear will seek to infiltrate where it can to achieve its mission, but its plans will be quickly frustrated if you take refuge in your loved ones. Not for nothing, the saying says that unity is a strength.
