We've been taught all of our lives that FEAR is the result of: being punished as the result of our actions; the unknown; or "harm" (anything that would happen that we don't want, deserved or undeserved) coming to us. Why does GOD let many of us live through our worst FEARS? Sometimes, OVER and OVER! Is it to teach us to FACE OUR FEARS? Maybe it is to teach us something far greater! Have you ever experienced realization that you are NO LONGER AFRAID? YOU ARE NOT AFRAID, APPREHENSIVE, ANXIOUS OR WORRYING ABOUT ANYTHING. Here is GOD'S TRUTH! FEAR IS THE ABSENCE OF GOD! Say it again, FEAR IS THE ABSENCE OF GOD! Psalm 23:4, "...I will fear no evil, for YOU are with me..." Psalm 118:6, "The LORD is with me, I will not be afraid...". Psalm 56:3-4, "When I am afraid, I will trust in YOU..." Romans 8:15, "...you did not receive a SPIRIT that makes you a slave to FEAR, but you received a SPIRIT of sonship...." and 1 John 4:18, "...The one who fears is not made perfect in LOVE..." GOD IS LOVE! GOD has shown me, over and over in my life; That FEAR is THE ABSENCE OF GOD! AMEN! HALLELUJAH!
NO FEAR, PEACE, LOVE AND JOY....
