How To Deal with Fear and Anxiety according to Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

As we enjoyed the much-anticipated teachings of Pastor Chris Oyakhilome in his celebrated Global Day of Prayer, we gathered even more insights from the great man of God.

The Christ Embassy founder has always understood that throughout our lives we encounter many situations that could make us fearful or anxious.

Not long ago, the man of God explained his view on this matter by going through this specific Bible verse, which says:

“Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God.” (Philippians 4:6 AMPC)

Here, Pastor Chris explained that the Word of God tells us not to be anxious over anything. Rather, by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, you should make your requests known to God.

The result of this is that the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, shall garrison your heart and mind in Christ Jesus.

As it says in Philippians 4:7, “And God’s peace [shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.”

The man of God explained, “The Bible is full of admonitions for us not to fear or fret. If we could not stay without fear and anxiety, the Scriptures would not tell us not to fear or refuse anxiety.”

“God knows you could live without anxiety, panic attacks, and fear; that is why He said for you not to worry or be anxious. He only tells you to do what you have the capacity to do,” added the Pastor.

“In order to stop fear and worry, you have got to have faith in the Word of God”, said Pastor Chris

And so, the man of God continued by saying that in conquering fear and anxiety, you have got to have faith in the Word of God.

“Fear is actually faith in the ability of the adversary to hurt you; faith in the ability of all that is negative to stand against you and defeat you!” emphasized the man of God.

He later explained that in order to deal with fretting and fear, you have got to have faith in the Word of God. “You must have faith in His love for you, faith in His grace, power, and ability to put you over in life!” the man of God declared.

“Your faith grows with the knowledge of the truth, and the Word of God is the truth that delivers you from fear. It even says in John 8:32, ‘And you will know the Truth, and the Truth will set you free,’” quoted Pastor Chris.

And so, the man of God concluded by saying that it does not matter in which area fear tries to attack you; refuse to fret!

Always find out the truth from the Word of God concerning the situation and stick to that truth, refusing to be moved by any contrary or negative information.
