DIG for Saturday the 30th of January…..fear, what fear…..1 John 4 v 18

In church today I testified to my church family that a lot of my life had been driven by fear; fear of failure, fear of not being able to provide for my family and fear of death (among other things).

The good news is that because of a better understanding of Jesus and His finished work these fears no longer have an effect on me.

I no longer fear failure, as I know my success in life is guaranteed because of and through Jesus.

I no longer fear lack of provision, as I know Jesus has already provided all I need, for both my family and me.

I no longer fear death, as I know Jesus has also provided for my eternal salvation.

Knowledge of Jesus and what he has done, in other words knowledge of His perfect love has meant fear has had to flee from my life.

The Word says that perfect love casteth out fear.

This is true not just for me but also for you.

If you have a fear in your life today it is because you do not have an understanding or revelation about one part or another of His love for you.

So, the good news is you can overcome that fear by getting a deeper revelation of His love.

It has to be His love that is important, as only His love is perfect.

You cannot force yourself to overcome a fear, but you can “work” on gaining a better understanding of His love and what He has done for you.

This will allow you to cast out the fear that is currently affecting your life.

Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that you love, that you have always loved me and that you will always love me”.

1 John 4 v 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
