Fearful Life

I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all of my fears. Psalm 34:4
What time I am afraid I will trust in thee. Psalm 56:3

Fear of failure. Fear of change. Fear of loss. Fear of pain. Fear of the unknown. Fear of stepping out to be who we are meant to be. I remember reading once that fear was the absence of faith. Sometimes I need reminders of that. Of course, God knew I would - and I must not be alone in my fears because there are many verses to remind us of God's presence, faithfulness and willingness to help us through whatever fears we are facing. I am so thankful for God's patience in helping us face our fears in this life. Does satan ever use fear to attack your faith? What verses strengthen you?
