New Year without Fear
God’s love is the perfect antidote to exterminate fear. Exterminate defined: to get rid of by destroying completely (thefreedictionary.com)
Love never fails so it is impossible for fear to escape it’s power. It must submit and quit it’s harassment immediately when love is in control. The bible tells us in 1 John 4:18, 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.
This scripture says that “fear has torment” so wherever fear is there is torment. The word torment means – to cause to undergo great physical pain or mental anguish. (thefreedictionary.com)
Love is a liberator. It will not allow fear to hold you captive and exert pressure on you as to destroy you through great physical and mental pain and anguish. The enemy (Satan) thrives on seeing his weapons of destruction like fear prosper and destroy in the lives of God’s creation. However, his desire to sift you as wheat is no match to God’s desire for you to live life more abundantly. Therefore, we must be those who agree with and follow God’s plan for our lives. God will lead us beside the still waters. He will restore not destroy our souls.
Whenever fear tries to take the helm of your life and lead you down a road of pain and anguish you must decide not to follow. You must decide to quickly say, no, fear you must go, you have no right to harass me anymore! Love is my God and I will not depart from it’s protection and influence in my life. That’s right I am free to live a life of Victory and Peace!
Now, my friend, that’s the way to win!
