Fear...it only "lives" when we have no relationship with love! Perfect love cast out all fear. Don't be put off because you read the word "perfect" it only means (untainted). When we read this scripture in 1 John 4 :18 "there is no fear in love (dread does not exist) but full grown love turns fear out of doors and expels every trace of terror! For fear brings with it the thought of punishment, and so he who is afraid has NOT reached the full maturity of love (is not yet grown into love's complete perfection)!" Whether in success, failure, or life in general fear has no part in you. But we must MATURE in love in order to cast fear out. Remember fear comes to attempt to thwart the plan of God for your life. Choose love in every situation. Do not convince yourself through human logic that because hard times have come that love is meaningless, not enough, too confusing, etc...rather understand that maturing in LOVE is the answer to every issue!
Nothing matters if you don't have love!!
