"There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out all fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love." 1John 4:18
IN JESUS TODAY!
"Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me: thy rod and thy staff they comfort me." Psalm 23:4 Here David tells of his heart for God, and how his love for God is so great that he totally submerged himself in God and completely trusted in him, so much so, that it did not matter what life brought to him, he was so confident that God would keep him in safety. This sinking or submersion into God and God's promises through love for God pushes out every possible fear that could be had, and allows us to be more like King David who was a mighty warrior who won many huge battles in his life. Struggles in life and the fears that come with them challenge us to draw near to Jesus and grow in love for him. As we grow in love for Jesus we can notice that nothing else matters, all the fears run in terror, and our trust in Jesus surrenders to his embrace. No more fear because Jesus is here! Let us all be made perfect in love for Jesus, then we will see fear run away.
"Understand therefore this day that the Lord thy God is he which goeth over before thee; as a consuming fire he shall destroy them, and he shall bring them down before thy face: so shalt thou drive them out, and destroy them quickly, as the Lord hath said unto thee." Deuteronomy 9:3
Through love and trust for Jesus these fears will be destroyed right in front of your face.
Fear Not Neither Be Thou Dismayed!
