There is no fear in love
"There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love" - 1 John 4:18
True love has the power to overcome fear. Fear can grip us in many different ways, and it can cause us to feel anxious, uncertain, and powerless, but when we experience God's love, we find that it has the power to drive out fear and to fill us with hope, peace, and joy. "There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love." - 1 John 4:18
Perfect love, in this context, refers to the unconditional and perfect love of God. When we accept God's love and allow it to fill us, it has a transformative effect on our lives. It gives us the courage to face our fears, and it gives us the peace to overcome them.
So, if you're feeling afraid, remember that there is no fear in love. Turn to God, and allow His love to fill you. Ask Him to help you overcome your fears, and to give you the peace and joy that come from living in His love.
Pray with us
Dear God, thank You for Your love that drives out fear. Help us to live in Your love, and to experience the peace and joy that come from knowing You. Give us the strength to face our fears, and to overcome them with Your love. Amen.
