Do you fear something? Allow me to give you some hope. Love is the answer to overcoming your fear because love is the Christian’s security blanket. When you were a child, did you have a teddy bear or a blanket that gave you a sense of security-something you wanted to hold close to you and get wrapped up in? Well friend, the Holy Spirit of God is the believer’s warm, loving security blanket. 1 John 4:18 says, “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. I read the verse, “Perfect love casteth out fear,” but it never rang true to me because I had never done anything perfectly except sin. Then, I read the verse in the Living Bible. It says, “We have no fear of someone who loves us perfectly.” God’s perfect love can eliminate all dread. It is not our love for Him, but His perfect love for us that will cast out our fears. The question isn’t: Am I brave enough? The question is: Do I trust His love enough? Have a wonderful day!
