There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.—1 John 4:18 (NIV)
The Bible tells us specifically, “Do not fear” (Isaiah 41:10). But since we’re not perfect, for most of us, fear is a part of life. So when you feel afraid, fight fear with faith. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers.
