False Evidence Appearing Real

Deuteronomy 6:13 Deeply respect God, your God. Serve and worship him exclusively. Back up your promises with his name only.
The only fear the bible promotes is in respecting, reverancing and honoring God. Anything other form of fear is from the enemy. And the bible says For God has NOT given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. They say fear is just false evidence appearing real. That means that the situations and circumstances that feel real, look real, and seem real in fact have NO power and authority to stop the move of God in your life.
Over and over in the Old Testament God spoke to His people to fear not and today He is saying the same thing. It doesn't matter about the conditions of the economy or job market, nor does it matter how sick you feel, or how bad the trouble looks the word of God is Fear not.
Isaiah 43:1-2 But now, this is what the LORD says- he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: " Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep pver you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.
We are promised in Joel 2:21 Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice: for the LORD will do great things.
Today the word of the Lord is that In the name of Your Savior Jesus Christ you can resist fear. You can command for fear to leave you. Begin to confess and bring comfort to your soul and say I will fear not because I know God is with me. I will fear not because I walk in love, power and soundness of mind. Manie
