In the Presence…

                                                     … 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.’
      Genesis 3:10

What happened?
      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 meant that they stepped out of the presence of Love,
      … of 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!
