Yes to God Tuesday: Chapter 2 - The Fear Factor...

A different type of Yes to God Tuesday post here (as well as being 5 days late!), as my brain is sapped of creativity tonight to write a ‘normal’ post. Instead of sharing my thoughts (they’re scribbled in the margins of the book), I’m going to share the Word; verses that Micca Campbell used in her book "An UnTroubled Heart", and written here under the headings in which she uses them. All verses are from the New International Version.

“For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.” – 2 Timothy 1:7

By God’s Grace –

“But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect. No, I worked harder than all of them—yet not I, but the grace of God that was with me.: - 1 Corinthians 15:10

The Introduction of Fear –

Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, "Did God really say, 'You must not eat from any tree in the garden'?" – Genesis 3:1

Be Careful Where You Step –

“Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” – James 4:7

"Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you." – Hebrews 13:5b

“Put on the full armour of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes.” – Ephesians 6:11

It is by God’s grace we are free to not feel fear. It is by the enemy’s will that we are made to feel fear. It is through submitting to the Word of God that we learn how to be cautious of that fear. It is through remembering God’s Word to us that we feel comfort in the face of fear. It is through putting on God’s armour that we overcome fear.


  1. Thank you Paula for sharing this post today. I needed to be reminded of these particular scriptures. I want to feel His comfort in the face of fear.

  2. I like this way of posting! I struggle with what to write about what someone else has written :) This format really emphasizes the points and lets them stand on their own!

    Hope you are doing well, Paula. Thinking of you...

  3. Hi I'm new on your blog, I came over from Gail's comment box and saw your name. Glad I visited. Your post for today was simple and direct to the point. Loved the titles, the verses, and your brief comment at the end about fear. It's so true, the enemy wants to imprison us in fear, and keep us from our true worth and destiny. We need a revelation of the love of our Father to set us free from fear!

    Have a fearless day today Paula! Thanks for sharing your heart.
