Are you always afraid of one thing or the other? And do you want to live your life without fear of anything? The good news is that there is an antidote to fear and it is called perfect love. It is a cure for fear of all kinds. A full dose keeps you perpetually fear free. This post reveals how to access this perfect love.
“… God is love, and he who abides and endures in love abides and endures in God, and God abides and endures in him. In this [union and communion with him] love is completed and reaches perfection with us , so that we have confidence in the day of judgment [with security onlyfans free trial
and audacity to face it], because as He is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in love [fear does not exist], but maturity (complete, perfect) love removes fear from the doors and drives out all traces of terror! Because fear brings with it the thought of punishment, and [thus] the one who is afraid has not reached the full maturity of love [has not yet become the love of love]. complete perfection] – 1 John 4: 16-18 (AMP)
You are a believing Christian and you know that fear is not from God, but you find that you are often afraid of one thing or another: fear of tomorrow, that your family members will die, of contracting any of these deadly diseases, of lack and misery, etc. You have prayed, consulted counselors personally or through their books, and yet you are not free from the torments of fear. It is because your love has not yet reached perfection.
Fear is a spirit, and God has not given you a spirit of fear, but of power, of love, and of self-control, 2 Timothy 1: 7. Perfect love casts out fear and keeps it away from you. And your love is perfected as you remain in union and communion with God.
God is love, and therefore communion with God is communion with love. The stronger your relationship with God, the more your love is perfected and the less fearful you become. This antidote to fear takes hold within you and drives fear out of you.
Now let’s look at the three main ways we communicate with God to ensure this cure for fear.
The three main channels of communion with God
1. The Channel of the Word
God’s Word is God’s love letter to his children and to all humanity. As you read and study the Bible, you are actually having encounters with God’s love – as your word intake increases, so does your love level, leading you to the perfection of his love.
When you abide and continue in the word, you are in communion with God, and love will abide and continue with you, leading you to perfect love. Just as iron sharpens iron, God’s love sharpens your love as you study God’s word, Proverbs 27:17. Furthermore, as you continue in God’s word, you are constantly transfigured into his own image of love, 2 Corinthians 3:18
2. The Prayer Channel
Another channel to access perfect love is prayer. Prayer is communication with God. It is a perfect way to communicate with God and his love. You talk to God and He also talks to you. It is going into the presence of God to seek his face for various reasons, including enjoying his love. Every time you truly come into God’s presence, you will be enveloped in His love, because that is He. You will become so aware of His wonderful love for you and it will certainly rub off on you.
When Moses came down from Mount Sinai with the two Tablets of the Testimony in hand, the skin on his face glowed and glowed from having spoken with the Lord, Exodus 34:29. Abiding in the presence of God never leaves you the same, you will return with joy and pleasures, even the cure of fear, Psalm 16:11
