Proof #2 of the spirit;
Fearlessness in the heart-
Perfect love does indeed cast all fear (1 John 4:18) in this way. Once you feel the Spirit take a hold of your life and the change begins you also naturally know that God is real and if God is real then by deduction heaven and the afterlife is real. This core knowledge reveals then the truth about this life and that is that it, at best, pales in comparison tando the next therefore ALL the things and fears of this life actually mean nothing. A new everlasting life has begun and NOTHING can snatch you from it, (John 10:28), so what is there to fear?
Don’t misunderstand, It’s not that I am completely Fearless in this reality. Put me on the roof of a house and you’ll see fear in my eyes, but the fear I’m talking about is a fear that drives your everyday decisions.
Am I afraid to fall and hurt myself? Of course! That’s just being undeniably human.
But the deceiver has no power over me for I am a child of God!
