I have been dealing with the issue of fear and all of its elements each day this new year on facebook and felt it could be a good subject for us to consider here also.
But perfect love casteth out fear - That is, love that is complete, or that is allowed to exert its proper influence on the soul. As far as it exists, its tendency is to deliver the mind from alarms. If it should exist in any soul in an absolutely perfect state, that soul would be entirely free from all dread in regard to the future. 1John 4:18
