I sat at the cafe. I sat and just breathed it all in. All that He’s done to get me here, all the lessons He’s taught me along the way. I prayed under my breath of thankfulness for the way that He works, the way He gently takes my hand and encourages me to take another step. He’s so good to me.
Today I laid out my fears on paper. And with each fear I had, I asked Him to reveal the connecting unbelief. I fear being alone, because sometimes I don’t believe He is enough for me. I fear going to the “wrong” country on outreach because I don’t always believe I can hear Him speaking properly. I fear missing out on opportunities because I don’t believe His plans are always as good as I’d think they are.
1 John 4:18- Such love has no fear, because perfect love casts out fear.
1 John 4:8- But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love.
Perfect love casts out fear. God is perfect love. God casts out fear.
John 10:10- The thief comes to seek, kill and destroy, but I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
You and I are not bound by fear, we laid that down when we realized that this life has one purpose, and that is to glorify Jesus in every single action we make. I wrote my fears out and God clearly showed me where I was believing lies from Satan, which gave me the perfect chance to stand against Satan and take my royal authority back. I will not make decisions based out of fear, but based on the solid words of my Saviour.
So go. Cast out that fear, because you have perfect love living inside you. Do you feel that in your bones?
With Strength that is not my own, Sam
