1John 4:18"There's 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."
As long as we fear, we cannot be made complete in God.
People who serve God out of fear will produce their own good works n fall short.
Dominated by guilt n having to justify themselves,they never knew what true friendship is.
But praise the Lord, God has better things for us...He wants us to know His love, a love that will drive out every fear.
Fear causes us to want to protect ourselves.Our minds begin to reason, to imagine.Imagined fears come to our minds...Tomorrow will there be food on the table?Will things work out tomorrow?Fear tells us.."You better do something now or it's too late.""Why did God allow this to happen?""I don't understand why this is happening."
Fear comes from immature understanding.We want to walk in faith; we also want to reason, evaluate n keep control.When u begin to fear n worry unnecessarily,begin to doubt His faithfulness or begin to get angry,then make the decision to trust n to walk in love.
What have we to lose anyway? even if nothing happens.no lightning or thunder or earthquake.Our situation will not be worse than before.Never blame God when things do not work out the way we expect.Maybe it takes a longer time. But what have we to lose?
On the other hand, fear can only make us take stupid, regrettable actions.But if our trust is in God,how can He disappoint us?Was the woman with a haemorrhage disappointed when she touched Jesus's clothes?"Daughter, be of good cheer; your faith has made you well. Go in peace."Immediately after this,Jesus turned n said to Jairus, a ruler of the synagogue,"Do not be afraid; only believe, n she'll be made well.'
You don't have to fear an uncertain future, or there's no food on the table,or the fear of rejection by friends,or the ability to obey all of God's laws,or to face His judgment.Because knowing His heart frees us from fear to trust Him in al things,like a child coming to the father...the child has no fear.The Father will handle everything.This alone...to trust in His love is the 1st step into His holiness.
Past childhood or deep-seated wounded emotions, whether from parent or someone,can build walls to trust anyone anymore,making it hard to accept God's love.Only the deep ministry works of the Holy Spiritcan break down those wallsn bring healing to the wounded soul;only His love can restore n bring freedom to bondages of fear n hatredhealing all past memories, all wounded emotionsn restoring the mind,will,emotion n intellect.
Allow His faithful love to control n overwhelm us.Walk in faith birthed by love.By faith, Moses chose rather to suffer affliction with the people of God than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin (Hebrews 11:25)Our Father in heaven so clothes the grass of the field which today is and tomorrow is gone;yet even Solomon was not clothed in such beauty as these.He knows your daily needs.Seek 1st His kingdom n His righteousness.Do not worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will worry about its own things.sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

This is the only one law that Jesus wants us to obey
because it covers everything.
The Lord wants u to be a better person everyday.
n to live day by day
depending totally upon His power n strength
n do not run this race alone.
because the path is not always straight n smooth.
because everyone needs a helping hand going through the life on earth
no matter how capable or independent a person might be.
we r all sinners in need of a Saviour.
That's why God gives us the Holy Spirit
Therefore pay attention to His voice, speaking to u.

He wants u to hear His voice yourself.
God is your Shepherd.
Follow Him for He wants the best for u.
No one can tell u your future.
Only the Lord knows what's best for u.

Seek Him for He'll light your path n show u the way.
Many perish because they rely on their strength n wisdom.
God wants us to know that
He's the Alpha n Omega, the beginning n the end.
Satan has no power over us.
For the Lord protects the righteous.
We might get hurt physically
but no one can touch our souls.
Leave your life in God's hand.
