I have been ministering to many people lately who are filled with fear and would like to respond to fear.

There is constructive and Destructive fear Matt. 10:24-31

Part 1:
If you have FAITH, you cannot trust God and be fearful at the same time. The psalmist said,"Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in you. In God (I will praise His Word), in God I have put my trust; I will not fear. What can flesh do to me? Ps. 56:3,4. A sudden fear gripped the psalmist for a moment, then he cried, "Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in you.You cannot truly trust God and worry.
Paul tells us to take the "shield of with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one." Eph. 6:6:16, and that ability is there the moment you lift up the shield. Fear is one of Satan's fiery darts. The shield of faith will extinguish it.
LOVE: "There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear." I John 4:18 There is but one perfect love---the love of God. Let the Holy Spirit fill your heart with God's perfect love and there will be no room for destructive fear. Rom. 5:5 When your faith in God and your heart is filled with His love you are equipped with the two elements necessary to give you victory over ALL DESTRUCTIVE FEAR.

Part 2. I will continue this dialogue, as there is CONSTRUCTIVE, or REVERENTIAL fear, and we need to understand the difference.
