One of Satan’s best weapons is fear, and we are all susceptible to it. However, Christians do not have to succumb to it. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, we can send fear packing.
Below are a few scriptures for shielding our minds from his attacks against us.
I suggest memorizing them so you can readily whip them out to defend yourself when fear comes calling. Write them on index cards and place in strategic places. Saturate your mind with them and see the difference God’s word and faith make against the enemy’s fear tactics.
The Lord is good. When people are in trouble, they can go to him for safety. He takes good care of those who trust in him.

1 Peter 5:7 NIRV
Don’t worry about anything. Instead, tell God about everything. Ask and pray. Give thanks to him. Then God’s peace will watch over your hearts and your minds because you belong to Christ Jesus. God’s peace can never be completely understood. Finally, my brothers and sisters, always think about what is true. Think about what is noble, right and pure. Think about what is lovely and worthy of respect. If anything is excellent or worthy of praise, think about those kinds of things. Do what you have learned or received or heard from me. Follow my example. The God who gives peace will be with you.
