… of fear?
Fear is probably mankind’s worst fear!
So, what do we really know about this enemy?
What is the root of fear?
Well let’s go back to where it all began,
… in a beautiful, tranquil garden,
where one of mankind’s first emotions was recorded.
Mankind did something … they decided to go their own way,
which caused something … they were suddenly on their own,
which meant that they … stepped out of a place of protection,
and the result was …
So he said, ‘I heard Your voice in the garden,
and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid myself.’
When mankind decided to partake of the negative, of evil,
… which is the opposite of what God is,
… and thus stepped out of the presence of God.
It means that they stepped out of the presence of Love,
… God, in Whom there is no fear!
Since then mankind has been trying to get out of fear,
… the only question is HOW?
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear,
because fear involves torment.
But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.
We love Him because He first loved us.
1 John 4:18-19
It’s not about fighting fear, or getting rid of fear,
It’s about stepping into His presence, into LOVE!
