  • Proper fear doesnt torment

  • For you have not received a spirit of slavery
    leading to fear again, but you have received a
    spirit of adoption as sons which we cry out,
    Abba, Father (Rom 815 NASB)
  • For God hath not given us a spirit of fear, but

  • Victory is the result of faith we grow in faith
    as we grow in love
