Fear is Like a Tick

A hard-bodied tick of the family Ixodidae, the lone star tick

For us to remove fear, we must attack it with perfect love. We need help from God to get the fear (whatever kind it is) completely out of us. If we try to remove fear without God’s help, a piece of that fear will remain in us and likely cause us much harm. Read more
