I’ve learned that when I fear anything’/anyone, I am in a way setting up a ‘god’ for myself and diminishing who God is in my life. When I fear to give love the way that Jesus offers it to me, then I have not allowed His perfect love to settle within me. I am still holding on to my pride, ego, my selfishness instead of embracing His perfect love. John 4:18; “There’s no fear in love. But Perfect love drives out all fear…” (NIV).
