Wouldn’t our Christian existence be wonderful without fear? Some even wonder why a God that loves us so much would even allow it to infiltrate our minds. God does not cause fear, but nevertheless, we are living in a fallen world, so fear exists and can work itself into our lives. However, we can resist the vise grip of fear by fixing our minds on the Lord. God has made it clear that He didn’t give us the spirit of fear, as illustrated in 2 Timothy 1:7: “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind” (NKJV).
So where does fear come from then?
