A couple of Bible verses and a commentary on them, for whenever we are faced with something we don't like or that might cause us to be afraid. I find that fear can come my way, when I am faced with change, usually a change that I don't think I'll like:
Psalms 56:9 –11 -- 

"The very day I call for help, the tide of battle turns. My enemies flee!  This one thing I know:  God is for me!! I am trusting God -- oh, praise his promises! I am not afraid of anything mere man can do to me! Yes, praise his promises. I will surely do what I have promised, Lord, and thank you for your help. For you have saved me from death and my feet from slipping, so that I can walk before the Lord in the land of the living."




"Fear can cause physical problems and paralyze us from action. What could be more fearful than being surrounded by an enemy who is pressing in from all sides! Faced with this situation, David suggested several antidotes for fear:  (1) remember that God is with you; (2) trust him, and (3) praise him for fulfilling his promises. When faced with persecution, insecurity, or insurmountable odds, use these to overcome your fear
