Such love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear. If we are afraid, it is for fear of punishment, and this shows that we have not fully experienced his perfect love 1Jn 4:18-19. Where does your confidence come from? Is it in your own ability or God’s ability working through you. When you allow fear to come into your life you slip back into the old man that was fully dependant on self and not on God. You may also feel condemnation that does not come from God. God does not desire to punish you, but to bring out your very best. He did not send Jesus to die for you to condemn you, but to give you new and abundant life. When you realise who God is in you, and that Jesus lives in you, His perfect love in you will expel all fear. Praise God today that if He is for you who can be against you. With Jesus in your heart you can put fear behind you and live in His perfect love always.
