The simplest way to define fear is:
Fear is a force that can prevent us from becoming all that God wants us to be. One of the strongest ways to overcome fear is to learn to move by faith. Faith will render fear powerless.
Psalm 27:1 — Jehovah is my light and my salvation;
Whom shall I fear? Jehovah is the a]”>[a]strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?
2 Timothy 1:7 — For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
1 John 4:18 — There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
