God has not given us the spirit of fear, but the spirit of power, love, and of a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7) The fear this is tallking about is that fear of evil things and of evil things happening to you. It attackes all human beings, but as a believer you do not have to yield to it like the world does, and you can resist fear and overcome it. Faith is the ecaxct opposite of fear. The two do not function in the same place at the same time. Here is the great and powerful good news: if we will act on the Word in faith then fear is negated and overcome! Faith will overwhelm (overcome) fear! The world is full of the fear of evil and terror, but this is the victory that overcomes the world, OUR FAITH (1 John 5:4). Be blessed with this message.
