Trade Fear for Peace

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. (1 John 4:18)
Can you imagine never having fear?
What if you didn’t have to be afraid of finances, relationships or afraid of being hurt, disappointed, or alone? What if you could rest knowing that despite what the future holds for you, you could have peace?
God’s Word tells us that we don’t have to fear judgment or eternity when we belong to Christ.
Once we put our trust in Him, we can rest in His love and forgiveness.
Then, as we turn to Jesus daily, His love envelopes us, comforts us, and gives us peace.
The more we draw near to Him, the more we understand His ways and can rely on Him to meet our every need.
And God doesn’t want you to keep His love all to yourself…He desires that you love others with the love you have experienced from Him.
Today, ask God to give you opportunities to show Him to others. Trust Him to put people in your life who need to know His all-powerful, saving grace and who need to trade their fear for His peace. Amen.
I pray this devotion blesses you as it blessed me. Pray for opportunities.
Have a beautiful and uplifting day in The Lord!
