Fearfulness may be an alarm or apprehension of danger. To be afraid is to lack trust in God. " Fear has torment and he that fears is not made perfect in love".
It doesn"t matter whats going on in the world today. God through His Word has promised to protect His people. We can be confident in Him and His Promises, as we know He will be with us in every circumstance(Psa. 23). To fear God is to praise Him(22:23)
