If ever there was an acknowledgement of the presence of an emotion in scripture, it would be fear. Throughout the biblical narrative we see God through prophets, preachers, angels - and even himself - identifying and addressing fear.
The fact that God will be present with folks when they are afraid is not just a promise given to Israel or biblical characters. That promise is also given to us.
Fear's main job is to protect Riley and keep her safe. He is constantly on the lookout for potential disasters, and spends time evaluating the possible dangers, pitfalls and risk involved in Riley's everyday activities.
There are very few activities and events that Fear does not find to be dangerous and possibly fatal.
