Embracing Love Not Fear
LIFE HACKS: Rebuilding Your Life, One Hack at a Time
There are lots of things we may be afraid of: change, the future, isolation, abandonment, failure, etc. We all wrestle with fear at some level. The Bible helps us to understand how we can not only combat fear but how we can overcome and have victory over fear. Jesus tells us in 1 John 4:18, “There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear…”
The idea behind this is taking the opposite stance. If we face fear, we embrace love (the opposite of fear). If we feel isolation, we embrace community. If we hear false words, we proclaim truth. So as you experience fear, embrace God’s love and picture God’s love as a blanket of comfort, speaking words of affirmation and hope to you. God’s perfect love chases out the fear we face!
