Proverbs 3:25 (Amplified Bible)

Be not afraid of sudden terror and panic, nor of the stormy blast or the storm and ruin of the wicked when it comes [for you will be guiltless],

Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh.

A. Don't be afraid of sudden fear

"Be not afraid of sudden fear,"

John 14:1 (Amplified Bible)

DO NOT let your hearts be troubled (distressed, agitated). You believe in and adhere to and trust in and rely on God; believe in and adhere to and trust in and rely also on Me.

1 Peter 3:14 (Amplified Bible)

But even in case you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, [you are] blessed (happy, to be envied). Do not dread or be afraid of their threats, nor be disturbed [by their opposition].

Luke 21:9 (Amplified Bible)

And when you hear of wars and insurrections (disturbances, disorder, and confusion), do not become alarmed and panic-stricken and terrified; for all this must take place first, but the end will not [come] immediately.

Mark 4:40 (Amplified Bible)

He said to them, Why are you so timid and fearful? How is it that you have no faith (no firmly relying trust)?

Faith cannot operate if we will be distracted with fear. Fear is paralyzed if faith is on top. Only one of them must survive and conquer our hearts.

ILLUSTRATION: It's like a see-saw, the other one is buried in the sand when the other is on top, keep our faith on top so that fear will be buried deep in the sand in our life. Keep fear buried in the sand, until we don't see anything of it.

2 Corinthians 5:7 (Amplified Bible)

For we walk by faith [we regulate our lives and conduct ourselves by our conviction or belief respecting man’s relationship to God and divine things, with trust and holy fervor; thus we walk] not by sight or appearance.
