A Believer has no need to fear

John 14:27

Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Love of God
God’s divine love has the believer as its objective
John 17:23; Romans 5:8; 8:35-39; Ephesians 2:4; 5:2; 2 Thessalonians. 2:16; 1 John. 3:1, 16; 4:10.

Grace of God
God’s grace has the believer as its objective, having saved him or her and therefore the believer has access to God’s grace, and through His grace a believer is taught spiritual truths; John 5:24; 6:27, 39, 40, 47; Ephesians 2:7-9; I John 5:11-13; Titus 2:11-13.
God’s grace protects the believer from the evil one (this does not mean we will not suffer, but rather Satan cannot touch a believer); Rom. 5:2; Phil. 1:6
It is by God’s grace that a believer serves God; John 17:18; Ephesians 4:7.

Power of God
God’s divine power has the believer as its objective, having saved the believer through the power of His gospel (Romans 1:16), thus  God can then work through the believer to manifest His greatness; Ephesians 1:19.

Faithfulness of God
God’s faithfulness has the believer as its objective which is not wavering in anyway – and thus we have no fear of being alone or without help; 1 Corinthians 1:9; 10:13; Philippians 1:6; 1Thessalonians 5:24; 2 Thessalonians 3:3; Hebrews 13:5.

Peace of God
The peace of God has the believer as its objective because His Son Jesus Christ shed His blood on the cross appeasing the wrath of God, and thus God has no anger towards a believer; indeed the Spirit of God indwells a believer; John 14:27; 16:33; Romans 5:1; Philippians 4:7; Colossians. 3:15; Romans 8:11; 2 Timothy 1:14

Comfort of God
God’s comport and consolation has the believer as its objective; the believer always has the comfort of God in the time of stress or grief; Psalm 23; 2 Corinthians 1:3-4; 7:6; 2 Thessalonians 2:16-17; Hebrews 4:15.

Intercession of God
God’s intercession has the believer as its objective because the Lord Jesus Christ is continually interceding on behalf of the believer before the Father; Romans 8:27, 34; 1 Timothy 2:5; Hebrews. 7:25; 1 John 2:1.
