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

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

A New Happiness

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

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

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

afraid, but you can take comfort in knowing you have an ever-present help in
your life.
