1 John 4:18 Where God’s love is, there is no fear, because God’s perfect love takes away fear. It is his punishment that makes a person fear. So his love is not made perfect in the one who has fear.

Fear is a subject that I circle around and come back to from time to time because I see it ruining many a life. Sometimes they’re small fears, other times they’re big fears. But God doesn’t want you to be afraid … of anything.

According to the US Geological survey, there are about 332.5 billion cubic miles of water in the world’s oceans. Unbelievable! That’s 97% of the world’s water, covering 70% of the earth’s surface. Two percent is frozen up in ice, and less than one percent is available as fresh water for us to use.

Water is just so amazing; it’s beautiful and fresh and clean and blue, teaming with life – yet terrifyingly deep and incredibly deadly in a storm.

Isn’t it funny how something can be beautiful one minute and deadly the next – teaming with life, yet a watery grave.

God’s creation is the most amazing place, isn’t it? There’s perfect peace one minute, and danger the next. And life can switch so quickly from one to the other. Beautiful one moment, terrifying the next.

So what do you and I do about fear? We don’t ever want to face it, but it strikes us sometimes when we least expect it.

1 John 4:18 Where God’s love is, there is no fear, because God’s perfect love takes away fear. It is his punishment that makes a person fear. So his love is not made perfect in the one who has fear.

A funny thing happened when I accepted Jesus into my heart a good many years ago now. Most of the fears in my life just disappeared. And those that didn’t, those that raise their ugly heads from time to time … well, at those times, I bury myself in God’s love. Why?

Because God’s perfect love takes away all fear.

God’s love is the antidote to fear. Always.

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
