Have you ever noticed how many times, as God revealed Himself to man, that He said "Fear not!"?
Is it because we fear what we don't completely understand? Is it consciousness of our unworthiness?
Fear is where so many begin their walk with God. Learning to let go of perceptions and perspectives is a lot like falling. God says He will hold me with the right hand of His righteousness. His righteousness! Not me doing a certain set of rules but instead letting Christ's cross be my answer. Faith is knowing He will catch me. He will keep His promise.
This is true because of God's love.
"In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent
His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him"
"There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear..."
I John 4:9 and 18a
