There is no fear in love; instead perfect love drives out fear, because fear involves punishment. So the one who fears has not reached perfection in love.￼ ~ 1 John 4:18
During my younger years I went through a period of time of being gripped by fear of being burglarized or attacked. At 23, I could confidently stand up in a room full of strangers to give a talk on the role of exercise in treating their disease process, but I was crazy scared walking from my car to my second floor apartment. One evening i stumbled upon the verse from Isaiah that would become my life verse:
Do not fear for I am with you; Do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will help you; I will hold onto you with my righteous right hand. ￼￼~Isaiah 41:10
Anytime I was scared I would say this verse over and over, and as I did this I found myself, over a period of time less afraid. Memorizing and reciting scripture moved me from fear to faith!
Fear can turn into a driving force in our lives, causing automatic negative thoughts filled with untruths from the enemy Satan. Are you making fear-based decisions or faith-based decisions?🚦
