Conquer Fear One Day At A Time

Cuauhtemoc Trevino

A 365 day "Fear Not" daily devotional that encourages readers to stand on God's Word through daily scriptures with commentary.


 

Conquer Fear is a faith based daily devotional that instructs readers on how fear causes them to relinquish their God given authority and reveals how standing on God's Word daily is the weapon they have been given to conquer fear in their lives. Scriptures on grace, rest, and blessings, along with those that include the directive "Fear Not", are used to encourage the reader, as well as equip them with the weapon needed to conquer this enemy. Regardless of what situation the reader may be facing, knowing that fear can be conquered through the meditation and speaking of God's Word over their lives empowers them to walk in the peace promised in God's Word.

Hello Tem,

I really enjoyed your devotional. You are certainly right about your views on fear. Fear cause many Christians their freedom in Christ Jesus. God confirms us Gen. 1:26-28, that we were created in His image, then he blessed Adam & Eve and commissioned them to go, multiply, and increase the land. He gave the power and authority to do so. Believers have that same mandate and commission past to us from God. Satan knows what God said about us and over us. Therefore, he comes to kill, steal, and to destroy us before we fulfill God's purpose. He tempts to hinder our finances and our livelihood, to get us off focus. His most proven tactic is to impute fear in the lives of the believers. When fear enters, it robs us of legal right, and ultimately our destiny. Great book. Simply written and explain. May God continue to bless you and your family. I declare and decree, the blessing of the Lord will overtake your life and your finances.

Be encourage and stay open to the Holy Spirit. He will lead and guide you into all truth.

First, I would like to once again express my profound gratitude for how you have persistently backed my book THE EVOLUTION OF ETERNITY and helped its progress on this site. Having said that, I must say that the backdrop of your life story against which you are writing your book is indeed compelling. Moreover, the introductory note at the beginning of your book is impressive. And you also write very well and have a soothing voice. Your compositions are simple, lucid and to the point, making your work very readable. Regarding how you now have the book, I have a few comments/suggestions. First, I would suggest you keep an eye on your punctuation. An example of where you might need to correct things is where you list the biblical variants of “fear not” in your introduction. Each of the variants should be enclosed in separate quotes. Also, the way you cite Bible passages with normal font and make your comments in italics is not quite standard. You might want to reverse the styling. Having said that, and considering the odds of having a commercially viable number of people willing to take a whole year reading about fear, you might want to consider the option of writing a book about the subject, rather than a devotional. In this case, you can elaborate on your life story, experience as a Christian and some of the Scripture passages. You can further specify your target audience and put this into consideration while developing the book. Alternatively, you might want to consider righting a devotional for a shorter period – say 21, 30 or 40 days – and elaborate more on the Scripture passages assigned to each day. But these are just my thoughts and suggestions and I realize it all comes down to what you believe the Lord wants you to do. I can see a promising writer and author in you and I pray that the Lord will lead you in realizing His highest for you. Thanks and grace be with you.

Hi Tem,

I'm just thinking that this would go well as a flipover calendar. You could still include your first chapter as an introduction. - Just a thought.

Kerrie Price wrote 685 days ago

Hi Tem, thank you again for backing THE GOD PLEASERS. I have revisited your book and I believe that almost everyone would benefit by reading it. Fear is such a paralysing factor in so many people's lives. They need a lot of help and encouragement to break through it and begin to live in a more positive way.

Your writing is clear and well reasoned, and since you back your thoughts so well with scripture, it should be well received, by believers as well as those still searching for faith in God.

Tem,

I’m revisiting Conquer Your Fear One Day At A Time because of your kindness, because of your writing merit, and for the way you have chosen to follow Jesus in such a bold manner. Written from the perspective of someone who could have been paralyzed by fear but resolved to give his problems to the Lord and to trust in His perfect will, Conquer Your Fear is the antidote for those burden with worry.

One fear-arresting scripture/devotion a day will keep the doubt away! Six more stars!

Mostly Scripture! This is a great, great thing! It is so refreshing to kind a book where the Scripture takes the driver's seat and the author takes the passenger. Great job.

Wonderful devotional writing here. I really enjoy it. It is encouraging for the reader and you've put it together well with the scripture verses. When this old world tries to pull us down, it's very good to go to God's word and seek His direction. He will be there for us every time, and we can count on that absolutely, as you've pointed out so clearly. Thank you for being a light in a dark world. Well done. julie

I like wisdom. Your book teaches it well.
I need it.

I don't need weapons, I need empowerment and your words offer me that in abundance.

Wonderful :)

Cariad wrote 875 days ago

This is very good. I instantly got into the reading, your style is accessible and flows well. The topic is always on the money, since fear is at the root of so much unhappiness. I always think that it's easy, in hindsight, to look at biblical figures who didn't let fear hold them back, but harder to trust in advance. I shall be reading all you've posted and will comment again after, but I think you've done well with this.
Cariad.

Wow, what timing that I discovered your book! My husband and I had just said we should do a teaching on "Fear Not" because we also heard it was in the bible 365 times. Your opening hooked me. I am going to attempt to read your book every day. I would buy this if it was a published book. Great title, great devotional. Hope to see more of your books! Great job, and may the editors find your book. I am rating you a 6, and I had one more slot in my bookshelf, and you are the perfect book to fill it. Again, thank you for your book!

Tem,

A year of encouragement. Strength for each day. I wish I had each of 365 scriptures and thoughts for the day to put in my pocket and take with me.

I loved that you said, “Since fear has no physical form, it is apparent that it is a spiritual enemy that cannot be conquered through human strength or effort…The only weapon we have, that will conquer fear, is believing and speaking the word of God over our lives.”

How quickly we allow fear to talk us out of moving forward, being obedient to call that God has given us. When we yield to fear, Satan has us right were he wants us -- uneffective and paralyzed. Thank you for giving me courage for the day!

CONQUER FEAR
This is an important book. I like the way you explain in the introduction the reason you wrote this is because you had a fear you wanted to conquer yourself. I’m sure you’ll find an audience for this among people with similar fears. I’ll add it to my shelf. Wannabeawriter. Who Killed the President?

Tem Trevino wrote 883 days ago

Mrs. Diaz,
Thank you so much. I appreciate your comments, because I actually took the time to read every scripture and wanted to see what context the verse was being written in. All too often we hear someone quote scripture and try to apply it to situations where it does not belong. That, in my opinion, is no different than lying. That is why I feel it is so important to ...Study to shew ourselves approved... (2 Timothy 2:15). And if you continue to read the verse it says, rightly dividing the Word of Truth. In other words, there is a wrong way to divide this Word. Again I thank you for your comment, and feel free to share this devotional with anyone and everyone you know who might be dealing with fear. As a matter of fact, if you will inbox me an email address, I'd be more than willing to send you a copy in pdf.
Blessings,
Tem Trevino

I really really like this Tem. I think I may click on every day and read one everyday as its intended. For now, I read straight through.
Being a student of the bible myself I have a compliment to give you: All the scripture lines up with your encouraging words and is not taken out of context. Much praise for that! So many will do that. And since it is just a piece of the scripture, a lot of people don't go check its context or the author. You have done very very well! :)

I have pondered the subject of "fear" myself. It is easy to fall into in one way or another and is expressed as a mistrust in God really. The command to "not fear" is given over and over in the Bible, and it can be one of the hardest for us to follow through on.
Joshua 1:9 is one of my favorites. It was introduced to me when I had only been a believer for about two years and my husband and I were on a plane coming back to live in the states. As a new Christian, new wife, new mother of a newborn, and moving back to the states and to a state I've never been in I was feeling a lot of anxiety.
In the middle of a the trip had to connect to another flight. My husband and I ended up sitting in opposite ends of the plane.!! Anxiety plus++++! :)
Well, an elderly lady ended up sitting in the seat next to me. As soon as the plane took off she said, "Honey, I need you to look up Joshua 1:9 please."
Most people would've said "Huh? " But I didn't. I reached in my diaper bag/purse and pulled out my pocket bible. I read, " Do not be afraid and do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God is with you WHEREVER you go."

That's all I needed. :)


Best wishes and many blessings to you,

Cuauhtemoc, what an amazing name!

I was dreading reading this as I am not very religeous, but was pleasantly surprised. I am glad that you mentioned that we should fear the Lord, as your chapter seemed to start by saying we should have no fear.

This chapter was very cleverly put together - not my usual kind of reading, but will get a high star from me!

Regards
Warrick

Appreciate the input. Any and all help is welcome.

Read through your first chapter. I appreciate what you are tryiing to say. It needs some polishing For example, in the first paragraph, "Having just been laid off my job, and the nation's economy in a downturn,..." needs to be, "...with the nation's economy..."
Good luck with your book!
