There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear.
I John 4:18 (ESV)
Fear is hard to conquer. It puts us on high alert and all of our focus is zeroed in on the object of our fear. Our stomach flitters, our blood pressure rises, we can feel the panic. Even when the panic stops we obsess. It takes us prisoner. What can we do? How do we find relief? We find it in His love. Not just any love. It is His perfect love. When you switch your focus from fear to His love for you, fear loses it power. Why? Because His love for you is relentless, unquenchable, unstoppable, never failing, never ending and immeasurable. It is tender, full of mercy and kindness. It is forgiving and understanding. It is unconditional. He is the big Father that walks into the room. He is the one who we run to and our fears dissipate. Today, when fear comes, switch your focus. Turn from fear to God’s love. His love for You will cast out your fear.
Dear Father, thank You for Your love. It never fails so today help me turn to it again and again. Every time fear comes Lord, help me focus on You and Your perfect love for me. In Jesus’ name.
