Perfect love casts out fear!!

If we have any fears – of the future, of the economy or the world as it is today, or even of eternity we can alleviate our fears by knowing how great God’s love is for us. God’s love is perfect and He is Love. He loves us individually and personally. If we are fearful and we are distressed we can be kept in bondage to our fears. By knowing God’s nature and His love for us – so great that He sent His Son to the cross to die as a substitute for our sins, we should know to trust Him in all things and not to be fearful because of His love for us. If we love Him, we also need to show His love to others. We love each other because He loved us first. He sent His Son to the cross to die as a substitute for us. So we die physically when our bodies – our earthen vessels – give way but our spirits live on forever!!! And He has prepared many dwelling places for us in heaven. John 14:2 tells us that “In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.”  I have to say that I will be as happy as can be with just a room – in heaven with Jesus!!! Abba Father!!!! Your love is perfect – You are perfect!!! Your perfect love casts out any fear I might have. I rest in Your promises!!!!! 

1 John 4:18
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear.
