colossians-walk

1 John 4 Verse 18: {NKJV} There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.”

Fear is a dreadful thing. And in these times people simply fear everything. Fear is a phobia.

Lets list a few Achluophobia is fear of the darkness.

Allodoxaphobia is fear of opinions.

Autophobia is fear of being alone.

Alychiphobia is fear of failure.

Enissophobia is fear of criticism.

Thanatophia is fear of dying.

Philophobia is fear of being in love.

Phobophobie is fear of phobias.

Febriphobis is the fear of fear.

These are only a few of the hundred of phobias {fears]

Yet there is a good ‘fear’ which is a reverent fear. A reverent fear of God and all that He is. A reverent fear, that the God who created everything, has ultimate power and authority, but He still loves you and me.

I john 4 verse 18 “There is no fear in love, but perfect love cast out fear.”

When we are In Christ {accepted Him for Who He is and what He did for us}, we are en clothed in Him. His love is perfect and as the scripture says perfect love cast out fear, there is no fear there. See yourself as God see you en-clothed in Him and His perfect love.

Here are some scripture that will also help you understand this.

Psalm 27 verse 1: {Message Bible} “With God on my side I’m fearless, afraid of no one and nothing.”

Mark 4 verse 40 “Jesus reprimanded the disciples: ‘why are you such cowards? Don’t you have any faith at all’?”

1 John 4 verse 18:  “There is no room in love for fear. Well-formed love banishes fear. Since fear is crippling, a fearful life – fear of death, fear of judgement – is one not yet fully formed in love.”

Hebrews 13 verse 6:  “God is there, ready to help. I’m fearless no matter what. Who or what can get me?”

Be blessed stand in the Goodness of Our Lord and Our friend and all His Attributes. Remember perfect His perfect love cast out all fear, Come bury yourself more into Him and His  word.

He Is a God that truly loves you, the way you are, and loves you to much to leave you that way. He has a destiny of purpose for each one of us.

God Bless.
