What Does the Bible Say About Fear?

Bible verses about fear

An addiction to drugs or alcohol can be a scary situation for you. The thought of seeking treatment can also be a bit frightening, as you know it will mean a life change. Even when you know something is for the better, it can still be unsettling and make you anxious. Take heart in knowing that help is here for you, in all aspects of your life. You can rely on some comforting words to get you through when you know what the Bible says about fear.

Staying Strong

You can find strength in these words about fear in the Bible. That strength can guide you as you seek addiction treatment and work toward a successful recovery.

“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." -- Isaiah 41:10

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling.” -- Psalm 46:1–3

“Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” -- Joshua 1:9

A New Happiness

Overcoming fear can give you a new sense of happiness, as can overcoming your addiction to drugs or alcohol.

“Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice, for the LORD has done great things!" -- Joel 2:21

“I sought the Lord, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to him are radiant, and their faces shall never be ashamed.” -- Psalm 34:4–5

Moving Forward Without Fear

The Bible reassures you that with faith, you no longer need to fear anything or anyone. You can take the steps necessary to overcome your addiction without fear.  

“The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?” -- Psalm 27:1

“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.” -- Psalm 23:4

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” -- Philippians 4:6-7

"You came near when I called on you; you said, ‘Do not fear!’" -- Lamentations 3:57

A Sense of Comfort

The Bible tells you that not only do you no longer have to be afraid, but you can take comfort in knowing you have an ever-present help in your life.

"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.' " -- Isaiah 43:1

"For I, the LORD your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, “Fear not, I am the one who helps you.” -- Isaiah 41:13

“When I am afraid, I put my trust in you."  -- Psalm 56:3

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.” -- Luke 14:27

“Be strong and courageous.  Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” -- Deuteronomy 31:6
