God is intimate. Even from the point when Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit, God called out for them and told them to not be afraid. When His angels sent messages to God’s people they almost always say “Do not be afraid.” God does not want us to be afraid of him but instead to have an intimate relationship with Him.
