Fight Fear with Faith

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
– 11 Timothy 1:7

Your fears can be healed by this text. It tells us, first, that fear is overcome by power. What power? There is only one force more powerful than fear and that is faith. When fear comes to your mind, counter it with an affirmation of faith. Second, love overcomes fear. By love is meant trust, confidence, complete dependence upon God. Practice this attitude and fear will diminish. The third element is to attain a sound mind in which there are no complexes, quirks, and obsessions. Live with the thought of God and you will develop a sound mind where no shadowy fear can lurk. Whenever you are afraid, verbalize against the thing you fear using the words of this text.

i'm keeing my mind to god

Anonymous I am burnout in human service dealing with a lot work load and stressed but I know it will turn out for the good but please pray for my health and life while dealing with other people besides myself and divine favor for my life - God Child

please pray that my 81 year-old sister Grace who just lost her husband in April will find peace and happiness in her life as she struggles with loneliness(she lives in another state than I do that is several thousand miles always, and her only child travels with her job and cannot be with her very often) - thank you

I will keep her in prayer may God give her peace and may God give her friendship according to God will- Sincerely, April Glover

please pray that I can get through the coming up first anniversary of my husband's death. We were married 48 years.

I lost my mom in December 2012. I can understand only too well what you are going through. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Someone out there is thinking about you...

Thank you!

where can i get a copy of his book please?

Dr. Peale published many books. Click the Shop link in the upper right corner of this page and do a search on his name, and you'll see some of his titles (note: many of the ones listed will be audio books, not print). Other of Dr. Peale's books are available from other sources, too, like Amazon: http://dld.bz/bP9hF -- and from used book stores, both online and walk-in stores.

Years ago I discovered some of Dr. Norman Vincent Peales's excerpts which make such excellent devotional lessons for church club meetings. They always stressed being positive, even though they were from different works of his. I'm wondering if you have any collection that I can purchase with these excerpts. The ones that I happened to print include: How To Build Friendships, Improve Your Prayer Life, A Wonderfl New Year, and When Faced With Grief. They usually had numbered steps, suggestions, etc. I hope you have such a collection available.

Hi Mazie. Dr. Peale published many books, but I don't know of one that fits your description precisely. Click the Shop link in the upper right corner of this page and do a search on his name, and you'll see some of his titles (note: many of the ones listed will be audio books, not print). Other of Dr. Peale's books are available from other sources, too, like Amazon: http://dld.bz/bP9hF -- and from used book stores, both online and walk-in stores.
