If you see God as judgmental and punishing (or even withholding favor as that is two sides of the same coin), you will fear Him.
The extent to which you see Him as judgmental and fearful is the extent to which you judge yourself and fear yourself, for if you judge your Self, you cannot know your Self as Love, and fear IS the absence of Love.
Fear is the absence of Love, but Love is all that exists, and God is all that exists (of which you are inseparable), so fear is truly only an appearance that is dissolved when Love is recognized. The extent to which you recognize yourself as Love is the extent to which you will recognize your divinity and Oneness with God and All that is.
These posts are similar to the over 2700 contained on The Divine Speaks website (www.thedivinespeaks.com) where God gives YOU the one that you need to hear at that time. Lawrence is the author of several books on emotional and spiritual healing, including the latest "The Divine Speaks (Volume 1): Sayings About Life, Love, and God." which can be purchased on Amazon (link below). Now the statements you have enjoyed electronically are presented in this new book in a divinely guided order which takes the reader on a powerful journey of remembrance, bringing about great healing and personal growth. http://a.co/51Urbqf
