Fear, we have all experienced it. Sometimes maybe more than we want to admit, but non-the-less it can creap up on us just when we don't expect it to.
Did you know...People's biggest fear is 'losing what they have'. it is healthy to fear loss when it helps us take steps to protect what we have worked for; but unhealthy; when we fear what we cannot change.
Fear is a unpleasant and often strong emotion caused by anticipation or awareness of present danger. Fear is a God-given and natural emotion intended for our good and protection but in many cases, we feel fear that is irrational and many times not based in reality. For many of us, fear can leave us with a sense of 'punishment'. this type of fear does not come from God but from the past and from situations that has created a sense of unhealthy fear to come upon us suddenly without warning.
I John 4:16-18 says in part, perfect love drives out fear and the one who fears is not made perfect in love. Love is always the issue.
