“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love”. 1 John 4:18
When you are afraid, it is an indication that you are not perfect in God’s love. Our love for God can never be perfect when we live in fear. We receive things from God based on His love for us. Our love for Him is in response to His love for us. When the bible is talking about perfect love, it’s talking about God’s love for you. It is everlasting, unfailing and unconditional. What makes it perfect is that He knows you in and out.
All things work for good to them that God loves. Look around you, there is always something to thank God for. We should be the most joyful people. The bible says your faith will become effective by acknowledging the good things in you in Christ Jesus. Don’t bother about the bad, look for the good. Fear not! Fear is what the devil uses as a weapon. He throws it forward before he attacks you. When you feel afraid, start to pray and to speak in tongues.
God has said He will give you rest, so fear not! He redeemed you while you were a mess and paid for you. His steadfast love for you never ceases. His mercies never come to an end. They are new every morning. Receive your benefit! You may see yourself as not good enough but He paid for and bought you. God, who is rich in mercy, for His great love wherewith he loved us, when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ. He redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us for it is written cursed is any man that hangeth on a tree: that the blessing of Abraham might come upon us, that we may receive the promise of the spirit by faith. You are a blessed man. Begin to thank God for your life.
