How to Help Someone You Love Overcome Fear

Pastor Ben


Isaiah 43:1-2 ESV

"Fear not...I will be with you.”

These words dispel fear:

I. Jesus loves you

(Isaiah 54:10, John 3:16-17, 1 John 4:16-17)

Isaiah 43:1 ESV

But now thus says the Lord, he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: "Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine."

II. Jesus made promises to you

(Isaiah 54:16-17, 2 Corinthians 1:20-22, Hebrews 6:11-12)

Isaiah 43:2 ESV

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.

III. Jesus has a plan of salvation for you

(Isaiah 45:22-23, Acts 16:30, Romans 10:9-13)

Isaiah 43:3-4 ESV

For I am the Lord your God...your Savior. I give Egypt as your ransom, exchange for you. Because you are precious in my eyes, and honored, and I love you, I give men in return for you, peoples in exchange for your life.”

IV. Jesus has good intentions toward you

(Isaiah 61:1-4, John 1:12-13, Romans 1:1-5)

Isaiah 43:5-6 ESV

Fear not, for I am with you; I will bring your offspring from the east, and from the west I will gather you. I will say to the north, Give up, and to the south, Do not withhold; bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the end of the earth.

V. Jesus’ way of living will work for you

(Isaiah 55:8-9, Colossians 2:6-7, Hebrews 11:6)

"You are my witnesses," declares the Lord, "and my servant whom I have chosen, that you may know and believe me and understand that I am he. Before me no god was formed, nor shall there be any after me."
