DIG for Sunday the 13th of March…..His love changes things…..1 John 4 v 18

I want to testify this morning to the goodness of God, showing how His love can cast out fear (1 John 4 v 18).

For years I was afraid of flying (I’ve shared this a number of times before) but looking back I have realised that as my revelation of the love of God for me grew, my fear diminished.

Yesterday the flight from over to Paris was amazing.

I sat at a window seat (I used to avoid this in case I looked out and saw where I was) and enjoyed the view from start to finish.

Once out of the cloud cover the blue sky was stunning and the approach to land was fantastic.

I looked out of the window marvelling at creation and at the Creator.

But I also marvelled at how I had changed, or rather ow a revelation of the love of God had changed me.

Perfect love, God’s kind of love, casts out fear, and there is no place for fear in His love.

A revelation of His love will remove fear from your life.

What I truly realised yesterday was that if there is any fear in my life (and there is a wee bit) there is some area where I don’t have a full revelation of the love of God.

And the same will be true for you.

If you have fear (about anything) ask God for a revelation of the area where you are lacking in knowledge with regards to His love for you.

Are you in fear of the economic climate?

Well, God loves you so much and He will provide for you

Are you in fear for your health?

Well, God put all sickness and pain on Jesus so that you could live in wholeness and health.

This is just two areas where I know people live in fear, but there are many others.

Ask the Lord about your fears.

Seek His wisdom about His love towards you, His perfect love.

Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that you love me in a perfect way and help me understand this truth in a deeper way today”.

1 John 4 v 18…..There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear…..
