Conquering fear of driving


Fear is a part of our human experience, it often works as an instinctual response to potential danger. However, at times, it manifests in less beneficial ways and holds us back from experiences and achievements we could otherwise enjoy or attain. Among these forms of fear, is the fear of driving. I am aware that many individuals, including Christians globally, wrestle with this particular fear. With faith, encouragement and perseverance, conquering this fear is definitely attainable. Let’s delve deeper into understanding this fear and the practical steps you can take to overcome it. Simultaneously, I have a heartfelt message for the Christians in the world today.

Conquering Fear of Driving

Driving can feel like an overwhelming task when filled with fear. However, it is a necessary and practical skill for modern living. The fear often comes from lack of confidence and the idea of potential danger or accidents. As said in Psalms 23:4, 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. Taking comfort in God’s word can start our journey towards conquering the fear of driving.

To overcome this fear, we must first accept it and not avoid it. Facing the fear and understanding its root cause is the first step towards conquering it. Remember, 2 Timothy 1:7, For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. As Christians, we’re bestowed with the spirit of power, and it’s this power that helps us fight our fear.

Seeking professional help through a reliable and patient driving instructor can aid you in overcoming the fear. This guidance can gradually build your confidence and skill. Simultaneously, exposure to situations you’re afraid of can eventually make them feel less daunting.

Message to Christians

I would like to say to my Christian brethren in the world today, let us always hold steadfast to our faith. The world around us may constantly change and throw up various challenges such as the fear of driving. Still, it’s crucial to remember Romans 8:31, If God is for us, who can be against us? In these trying times, hold steadfast onto His promises. Fear, whether of driving or otherwise, has no place in the heart that fully trusts in God.

While we have practical solutions like training and professional help to tackle our fear, always remember, our most potent tool in any fear conquest lies within our faith in Christ Jesus. Our lives, with all its twist and turns, like a windy road, are easier navigated when we hand over the steering wheel to God.


In conclusion, whether we’re dealing with a fear of driving or any other form of fear, let us not forget the divine power that resides within us as Christians. Overcoming fear doesn’t necessarily mean completely eradicating it; instead, it involves taking calculated steps, garnering knowledge, building confidence and relying heavily on the comfort of God’s word and his enduring promises. Remember Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
