Learn How long-term effects of stress on the body


Worry and fear do not come from God but exhaust the power God gives us to face everyday problems and to carry out responsibilities. These are sinful wastes the illnesses caused by stress and anxiety.  Fear is not God’s character but comes from the kingdom of darkness. There are 365 scriptures to help us with fear. Fear is the opposite of faith. 


Be In Health Coming to Texas - Free 2-Day Conference - See Testimony below:




Fret not He loves you (John 13:1)

Faint note He holds you (Psalm 139:10)

Fear not He keeps you (Psalm 121:5)


There is biblical and scientific evidence that the diseases of today are rooted in sin.  Why is it not trusting God? 1 John 4:18 says perfect love casts out fear.

Fear is the opposite of faith, and fear can manifest in worry, anxiety, stress, panic attacks, OCD, etc.  Continual fear produces dis-ease such as:


Heart disease, skin rashes, anxiety attacks, feeling overwhelmed, heart palpitations, stomach issues such as gurt, back pain, compromised immune system, anxiety and stress, colds, and much more.


Again, fear and worry are sin issues. Fear is a barrier to the promises of God. The enemy knows this and continues to get us to worry through fiery darts he cast in our thinking. The scientific community understands how our emotions affect our bodies; fear is the biggest issue. 


The limbic system is where our protective emotions, including fear, originate. The process of creating fear occurs unconsciously in the brain. Then, it stimulates the entire central nervous system, releasing different chemicals – depending on the thought, good or harmful chemicals are released. Fear releases cortisol. An overabundance of Cortisol destroys the adrenal glands, causing fatigue and exhaustion, even if a person gets eight hours of sleep.



Part of your brain controls the physical response to fear. It sends a signal directly to the amygdala, which stimulates the hypothalamus to produce a corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) that triggers the pituitary gland’s discharge of adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH), which enables the adrenal gland to secrete cortisol.  Again, Cortisol is a death hormone.

Cortisol in the bloodstream causes an increase in glucose production, providing the necessary fuel for the brain and muscles to deal with stress.


Cortisol is involved in several body functions including:


  • Proper glucose metabolism

  • Regulation of blood pressure

  • Insulin release for blood sugar maintenance

  • Immune function

  • Inflammatory response


Fear is scientifically proven to be a cause of dis-ease. ScienceDaily (Mar. 26, 2008) states intense fear can make our blood clot and increase the risk of thrombosis or heart attack. Anxiety patients have a statistically higher risk of dying from heart disease by a factor of 3 or 4.

The Bible says fear results in heart problems: Men’s hearts fail for fear. Luke 21:26.

There are Healthy and Unhealthy Fears

Unhealthy fear is not of God but is projected from the kingdom of darkness. Fear and faith are opposites. We cannot run in a spirit of faith and a spirit of fear at the same time. We should not fear because God is with us. God said He will never leave or forsake us - (Deu 31:6). How to Fight Stress Quickly?

When you fear something, cast your cares on the Lord because he cares - 1 Peter 5:7. He also says not to worry about tomorrow and that the birds, flowers, etc., do not worry, so why should we worry?  You have to renew your means through the Word of God, which is renewing the mind.  The more you counteract the fiery darts from Satan and use the Word of God, you will overcome your fears and everyday worries. This also builds faith in the Lord and His Word.


Healthy fear helps us avoid life-threatening or dangerous situations that are God-given. Fear is the beginning of wisdom (Ps. 111:10).


My favorite scripture is “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.” (1 John 4:18) “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” (2 Tim 1:7)


“Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ” (2 Cor 10:5). Learn to step into His presence and feel Peace. He is our peace even in the midst of the storm. It is not always easy but a fight. The fight is spiritual warfare against the enemy.


“That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days” (Deut 30:20a) How to remove fear from mind and heart


"Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked." (Ephesians 6:16).


Instead of fretting, learn to praise the Lord in all situations and be content in all things, realizing God is for you and not against you and is working out your situation.  Faith is an active Word of God, believing in what you cannot see.  It is confidence in God and not yourself that will make everything turn out okay.

This is our Services section. This is a great place to give more information about the services we offer.  

These are complex, confusing times, and though we know that our God is in control and will take care of us, we sometimes feel anxious and worried. We know that, as written in Philippians 4:6, prayer is the answer, but sometimes praying is complex, and you need someone to pray with you. If you need prayer, fill out the form, we pray weekly on Tuesday nights over your prayer request.
