“For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven,
And do not return there without watering the earth
And making it bear and sprout,
And furnishing seed to the sower and bread to the eater;
So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth;
It will not return to Me empty,
Without accomplishing what I desire.
And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.
For you will go out with joy and be led forth with peace;
The mountains and the hills will break forth into shouts of joy before you,
And all the trees of the field will clap their hands.” ~Isaiah 55:10-12

Yesterday, I wrote about my UNword which was UNafraid.  I realized that I left out an action plan for when fear comes.  I don’t just want to get rid of fear and not replace it with something better.  So, here are three simple things we can do to keep fear away:

1.  Praise!  I find that when I put praise and worship music on in my house, I am instantly praising the Lord and not dwelling on all of the fearful things.  Lately, I can not get enough of this song and have played it a bazillion times.

2.  Pray!  Seems so obvious, doesn’t it?  But too often I find myself getting fearful and immediately picking up the phone to call a friend to hash out the problem.  There is nothing wrong with calling a friend because God gave us fellowship and a support system, but the problem comes when we are running to those other people first before we run to God.

3.  Ponder!  Joshua 1:8 says “Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.” Here is a list of 50 verses that can lead to peace. I have a friend that has a packet of index cards that she has written UNafraid verses on.  She carries them in her purse so that she can whip them out whenever she needs them.  I really need to do this.

What are some of the ways you cope with fear in your life?
