You may have heard that "perfect love casts out fear.
What exactly is “perfect love”?
What does it mean for our lives as Christians? But what does this verse mean?
For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world.
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. 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. There is no fear in love.

And when they heard God walking in the garden, they hid Genesis How many times does Satan convince you to fear in your life? We fear because we forget that God made us with His love. His loves drives, pushes, and casts away all of our tormenting thoughts and fears. Jesus felt all of the fears we deal with now, and an example is pointed out in Matthew 26 : Stay here and keep watch with me.
Yet not as I will, but as you will. Jesus began to be sorrowful. He was in a state of distress and depressed because He knew what was about to happen.
His death for our life. But Jesus knew that God's love for Him is beyond any fear that tries to come in.
So, if we can comprehend this, then we can trust in our hearts that God will not leave nor forsake us in our fear Deuteronomy For you did not receive a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received a spirit of adoption. If we are being led by the Spirit of God, then fear should not overtake you.
We are adopted when we accept Jesus Christ into our lives. But if we are being led by the spirit of fear, then we are being influenced and overwhelmed by fear alone. Call to God and He will answer Psalm Live in God's love and let His love rule and be sovereign over your life so that fear will forever be cast away.
