Satan has always used his deception, filled with ungodly dread or terror, to torment godly people.
Those who have been born again are to realize where feelings of dread or terror come from. It is not from God but from the enemy of our soul.
We have a covenant that guarantees us total acceptance with God (Eph. 1:6). As long as we don’t renounce our faith in the atoning blood of our Savior, Jesus Christ, that will never change.
For an unbeliever, the fear of the Lord remains a great deterrent from sin. However, for those of us who have received the grace of God, it is His goodness that results in us having a reverence or awe (called fear in scripture) of Him which replaces our old sin consciousness. His goodness is awesome!
2 Timothy 1:7 says, “God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”
