God’s Love never fails. Still today, people ask me if I’ve ever been in love before. I say “yes” because I’m in love with a man and His name is Jesus Christ.
God’s presence is so powerful. So powerful that it’s almost too hard of a concept to fully grasp. His Love for you is unchanging and it can turn any circumstance for the better. He’ll take it, and remove it out of the way. His heart is for you and it can heal any given situation. It can cast down any fear. It’s more powerful than anything we know.
Perfected in Love
The concept of Love and fear are not one and the same. Love is faith in God and fear is faith in the wrong God. Fear can’t exist where God is present. This idea blew my mind. If the statement is true, which we know it is because of God’s word in 1 John 4:18, “There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.” Then that means dealing with fear depicts the idea of lacking in Love. We have to be perfected in Love!
Being perfected in Love can look quite similar for everyone because of the one ultimate source! I like to reflect back on the ultimate act of Love. God’s sacrifice for us on the cross. He gave His one and only son to suffer on our behalf, in hopes that we would come to know His name. But, not only His name but His heart. Being perfected by God is to be changed by His presence. Like in 1 Corinthians 13:4-5, “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.” It’s vital to keep fear out, by keeping Love on!
I encourage you today to seek after God’s presence. If you find His presence, then there you’ll find His heart. And remember, if you find His Heart for you, Fear cannot stand to exist.
