What does the Bible say about having a phobia?

Here's the answer:

The Bible gives us tips for dealing with phobias.

Phobias are more intense than fears. Technically, phobias are anxiety disorders and they are based on an extreme fear or an irrational fear of something. People can have phobias of being in public, going to the dentist, of animals, or a lot of other things! Having a phobia can impact a person’s entire life and be a hindrance in going to school, finding a job, or making friends.

Some people believe that phobias are rooted in not trusting God enough, but this is not always true. Instead, they are often caused by traumatic experiences. Doctors and therapists can help phobias become less severe.

If you are struggling with a phobia, know that you can overcome it with the help of God, doctors, and therapists. Seek out a trusted adult to assist you in finding the help you need. Also, pray to God and ask Him for His help. He loves you very much.
