How can we keep from being afraid? The same reasons we have for rejoicing are the reasons we have to not fear. The Bible tells us that God is love, that He’s a good father, that He’s watching over us, always with us. The Bible also tells us that God has the ability to control all of creation, including Satan. If we can hold onto these truths, then we have a reason to reject fearful thoughts. We can be confident knowing that our good, loving Father is looking out for us, taking care of us and that we are never out of His reach or in any situation where He is unable to save us. We can live without fear because we are loved perfectly.
