“There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.” –1 John 4:18 (NIV)
Apparently, there are 3 things our human nature wants and needs:
1. Security (physically, financially, emotionally)
2. Connection (relationships, feeling valued and accepted)
3. Control (empowerment, choices, and options)
When we feel fear and anxiety, it’s because one of these 3 is being
…we might be on the verge of losing a friend
…we might be financially unstable
…we might not feel accepted by the majority of people
…we might feel depressed, alone, forgotten, unimportant
And this sucks!
I’m not saying you can’t feel this way, because you can. I felt it.
But there’s good news.
We don’t have to.
Because God already provided security, connection, and control in us!
Jesus’ sacrifice is our security!
The Holy Spirit is our connection to God. Our community is
And no matter what, God is always in control! He will provide whatever is
I know you know that.
I know I know that.
Even though sometimes I doubt whether God really meant this promise for me
But He does.
God loves me. God loves you.
And in love, there is no place for fear.
Do you want to trust the Perfect Love too?
