“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear, because fear hath punishment {torment}. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.”1 John 4:18 ~KJV

we are informed that GOD’s love is most complete and most powerful when it has a conductor to flow through. That perfect conductor is you…..is me! We are the perfect fit for GOD’s love!

May be an image of outerwear, mountain and sky

“You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.” (Is. 26:3)

We’ve all had moments of pain and fear. Is it easy to see GOD’s love while we are deeply afraid, deeply depressed or in great pain? GOD’s love remains! It’s our attention that is drawn away!

In 1 John 4:18, we are assured that Love defeats fear. That’s actually the Good News! But be careful not to read that GOD’s Love, and GOD’s Love alone drives out fear. It can. It does. However, some things are very difficult to fight alone. Go back and read verse 12 of this same Chapter: “No man hath seen GOD at any time. If we love one another, GOD dwelleth in us, and His love is perfected in us.

When you know that you have eternal life, the Holy Spirit releases you of the spirit of fear and replaces it with a spirit of power and of love and of a sound mind! Not only that, He bears witness with your spirit that you’re a child of GOD!
