How to Fix a Fearful Heart

I’m not offering medical advice in this article, although the material I’m about to share may provide some positive results both spiritually and physically. Fear and anxiety issues are at the top of the list as major contributors for many emotional, physical, and even spiritual disorders being experienced in the world and the church today. Heart disease, diabetes, hyperthyroidism, various phobias, panic disorder, post traumatic stress disorder, insomnia are just a few examples of conditions linked to fear and anxiety.

Our Lord Jesus commented in Luke 21:26 regarding the last days and particularly

the post rapture tribulation period….”men’s hearts will fail them for fear and for looking after those things which are coming upon the earth: the powers of heaven shall be shaken.” Our world is definitely changing at a rapid pace. The lack of stability on all levels of our society can be threatening to our sense of stability, peace, and confidence. The practice and promotion of unbiblical lifestyles and societal norms seems to be unstoppable. Political and economic goals are more and more committed to a world view without God or His Word. Are you scared yet? Well, don’t be! It’s all an illusion. I’m not denying that it’s happening, I’m denying that it will ever succeed!

Consider Psalm 2:1 written for times like these…

“Why do the heathen rage and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves (rise up), and the rulers take counsel together against the Lord and against His anointed saying, Let us break their bands asunder and cast away their cords from us. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh; the Lord shall have them in derision. Then shall He speak unto them in His wrath and vex them in His sore displeasure.”

Ladies and gentlemen, it is not Putin or Xi, or Washington, DC or the “Woke” crowd, or the globalist who will determine our future. God holds our future in His hands and His view is the only one that counts. I like what Jeremiah said in chapter 29 verse 11…

”For I know the thoughts that I have toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.” A fearful heart that becomes fixed on the reality of God, HIs Word, and His purpose will suddenly see beyond the illusion of Satanic power and control. Jesus said in Luke 21:9 “When you see all these things come to pass, don’t be afraid.” God is in control, always has been, always will be! When our hearts remain fixed on Him, fear fades, faith rises, and the future is bright and clear.
