Daily Devotional – Fear Got a Grip Of You?

By on October 21, 2019
Daily Devotional

Our scripture for the Daily Devotional today is taken from 1 John 4: 13-18When last did you confront your fears? I’m not referring to the ones displayed in the world at this time of year, but the fears that hold and control you. According to scripture, fear is the absence of love because love drives out fear!

This is how we know that we live in him and he in us: He has given us of his Spirit. 14 And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. 15 If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in them and they in God. 16 And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.

God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. 17 This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus. 18 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.

We have all lay in bed at night, gripped by fear. We have thought over all the options and possibilities. Considering them and our reactions over them we prepare for what we fear. Perhaps we think that all this preparation will aide us, but if we are honest we can feel our blood pressure rising with every passing thought.

Fear has no place in our lives according to God’s plan. God has brought perfect love to the situation.

How do you respond to love from those around you? Do you question them and their commitment? Even if you do, God’s love is there to engulf you and hold you no matter. His commitment is confirmed in His actions that He took 2000+ years ago on the cross. God removed the punishment that truly deserves fear. Rest in God’s perfect love and know that you need not fear!

Let’s Pray

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you, God that you have come to drive out every fear in my life! You have removed the greatest fear through Your death on the cross. Fill me with Your spirit and love, so that there is no space in my life for fear!

In Jesus’ name, Amen
