TOPIC: THE POWER OF LOVE TERMINATES FEAR
Scripture: 1 John 4: 18. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter! Our world today is filled with all kinds of breaking news that intimidates and instills fear in the hearts of men. So today we are looking at how the power of love can help us to handle this menace called fear!
The Bible said:
2 Timothy 1: 7. For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
From the scripture above, the Holy Spirit is saying God does not give us the Spirit of fear, somebody else must be offering the spirit of fear to us!
Therefore, whoever is offering you information apart from God through His agents(ministers) and the scriptures has the ability to inject fear into you.
How then do you terminate fear?
1. Accept the fact that fear is a spirit and handle it spiritually by engaging the power of the Holy Spirit.
2. Reject bad news. Ensure your mind is free from news that is capable of instilling fear. And stop feeding your eyes with corrupt movies! Rather embrace the gospel and pursue the knowledge of God
3. Let the revelation of be the Father’s love be perfect. Anywhere you see fear, love is not made perfect.
1 John 4: 18. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
The revelation of the fact that there’s a Father who loves and cares for you is enough to shatter that tension of fear that is mounting up in you right now!
As the year is gradually coming to an end there’s fear and uncertainty everywhere but as a child of God, fear not!
Isaiah 43: 2. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.
Beloved, if God is your father, know for sure that He loves you dearly and that alone should eradicate fear in you! Unfortunately many of us still allow fear, which is an indication that something is wrong with our revelational knowledge of the Father’s love to us.
This is because whom you love, you don’t suspect! Whom you love, you trust! But many of us don’t trust God. We doubt the genuineness of His love to us that is why fear can lay hold on us.
Think about this, if you know that Mr president of your country loves you? How much less the Monarch of the universe! Can your father be the one flying the aircrafts and you as a passenger and a son is afraid it will crash?
Can your father be on the steering and permit you to die in auto rash?
Can your father be watching over you yet permit anything to happen to you while sleeping?
Why are you scared of sleeping at night? Some are scared of sleeping alone, some cannot sleep unless the light is on etc(Matt.28:20)
Beloved, just like the little baby will relax in his father’s arm, let’s learn to relax in God’s loving arm!
This is what the Bible said:
Isaiah 54: 4. Fear not; for thou shalt not be ashamed: neither be thou confounded; for thou shalt not be put to shame: for thou shalt forget the shame of thy youth, and shalt not remember the reproach of thy widowhood any more.
Therefore to terminate fear, we must understand the love of God towards us in addition to revelational knowledge of God. To those who are afraid of stepping out or trying new things, let the love of God fill your heart and fear will die a natural death.
Remember this : Heaven is real and hell is real! Those that reject our heavenly Father’s love also reject Christ and will have themselves to blame in eternity. Give Jesus a space in your life today.
Prayers points :
– Father, thank you for your word to me today.
– Lord I repent of whenever I have doubted your love for me. Please have mercy on me, never to doubt you again in Jesu’s name!
–That torment of fear in your life dies now in the name of Jesus.
-You are exempted from the calamity of this season in the name of Jesus.
-As fear loses Its grips over you, receive your miracles! Miracle jobs, miracle babies, miracle marriage etc.
