10 Best Bible Verses To Drive Out Fear Amidst Coronavirus Outbreak

As at today, people all over the world are wearing protective face masks as a preventative measure against the spread of the coronavirus. Some are almost bathing with hand sanitizer every minute in order not to take chances at touching their faces with the virus. Everyone is being too careful. It's getting really scary out there.

Bible Verses Against Fear

Combat the fear of Convid-19 with bible verses

One of the hardest things about this moment is the uncertainty. Plans that were made months/years ago are now being cancelled, with doubts about rescheduling because everything is so up in the air.

Coast to coast, large public gatherings have been prohibited. Employees have been told to work from home, universities have moved all classes online and primary schools have closed for sanitizing. The stock market has seen meteoric crashes. The naira to dollar exchange rate is becoming more than a nightmare.

As the number of confirmed cases of illness grows, so too does the nation's collective uncertainty. Public anxiety is high, and everyone is trying so hard to curtail fear.

A part of me wants to leave social media till everything is over. And the other part of me understands that we all need one another to survive. Each of us must do whatever we can to save the world.

This is the least I can do; to write. To share. To be a light in this dark world.

1.
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
— 2 Timothy 1:7


2.
So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you.
— Isaiah 41:10


3.
 Say to those with fearful hearts, “Be strong, do not fear; your God will come, he will come with vengeance; with divine retribution he will come to save you.
— Isaiah 35:4


4.
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus.
 — Romans 8:38-39


5.
I sought the LORD, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears.
 — Psalm 34:4


Let me say this: Some people say prayer wouldn't solve anything now. They even go ahead to discourage those who are seeking the face of God. Please, don't join them. Throughout the Bible, God hears and responds to the prayers of His people, all according to his perfect will and for the good of his beloved people. This is not the time to lose faith. This is, in fact, the time to intensify our prayers.

When was the last time you prayed? For your country? For your next-door neighbour?

6.
Even though I walk through the darkest valley,I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
 — Psalm 23:4


7.
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.
   — Joshua 1:9


8.
 The LORD is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life— of whom shall I be afraid?
    — Psalm 27:1


9.
You who fear him, trust in the LORD— he is their help and shield.
 — Psalm 115:11


10.
Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.
— Matthew 10:28

To be honest, it's not been easy staying positive. One minute I'm the 'I'm covered with the blood of Jesus' type of person. The next minute I'm so scared like 'we are all going to die'. The news updates are so overwhelming. You can't even pretend to not be aware about what's going on.

However, let's always remember this:

GOD IS IN CONTROL.

There is absolutely nothing that happens in the entire world that is outside of God’s influence and authority. As King of kings and Lord of lords, God is sovereign.

Because God is sovereign and He loves you, nothing will ever come into your life that He does not either decree or allow. Consequently, no matter what you face in life, you can take comfort in the fact that God is sovereign. God is in control. God is aware.

No fear, no panic, coronavirus isn't for you

This too shall pass.

Stay inspired.
Stay positive.
Stay lovely.
