Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid - (Matt 14:27)
I will not fear, Father, for I know that You are with me
How wonderful it would be not to fear anything! There are few of us who do not fear something -- ill-health, poverty, the unknown, death -- to name just a few of the fears some of us suffer from. And why do we fear? Because we are lacking in faith. We do not realise our unity with Him Who is all-love, all-power, all-knowledge, and ever present.
That is one of the things we are on this plane of consciousness to do -- to learn that we are one with God the Father and all that He has and is. What He is we potentially are, but not all of us can FEEL this is so -- though we may accept it intellectually.
And if we are one with Him, we are one with each other, since we are all His beloved children.
