Memory Monday – Week 25

This verse probably should have been posted back during my fear series, but it didn’t, so I’m sharing it now πŸ™‚

God is love. Love isn’t something we have to attain, it was already perfect when Jesus died on the cross. The love in this scripture isn’t referring to love based on feelings, but it is perfect and complete. Because of His perfect love, we have nothing to fear, ever. God should always be our standard of love.

I believe this verse is relating to having fear on judgement day, but I think it can also relate to all aspects we deal with of fear. I think if we truly comprehended what Jesus did on the cross we would realize we have nothing to fear, EVER. Ever, ever, ever. Think about it!!! Jesus has overcome. He died for all of our sicknesses and all of our sins. We are made complete and whole because of what He has already done. Why fear?

We can’t be confident in anything if we even have slight fears. Confidence and fear do not go together. What are you fearing? Maybe you are pregnant and you have fears of losing your child. Maybe you desire to be pregnant and have fears it will never happen. Remember, The Lord does not give us a spirit of fear – 2 Timothy 1:7.Β This verse means that ALL thoughts related to fear are NEVER from the Lord. They are ALWAYS from the enemy. The minute those thoughts come into your mind, you need to rebuke them!

What about anxiety, control, etc. Why is there a need for anxiety? Why is there a need for control? Don’t you think all of this stems from fear? I do!!!! We are anxious about something because we have a fear it will or won’t happen. We try to control our kids while they are in school, because we fear they won’t excel. But, as this verse says, because of God’s perfect love for us, there is no room for fear.

What are you fearing? I encourage you to release all that to God today. Join me in walking in complete freedom; in the Lord’s perfect love and not in the enemy’s attacks of fear. Where the spirit of the Lord is there is freedom – 2 Corinthians 3:17.Β

    Great message, especially as I enter my 2ww and fear the results. I will do my best to push that fear a side.

    Activating faith and NOT fear is one of the hardest things to change as a habit. You are so right…when you think about it, so many of our actions (esp. controlling ones) are driven by fear as the root cause.

    I have to agree with Emily’s comment. It can be quite a challenge to activate faith and not fear. I love this scripture to remind us that The Lord is love and has so much love for us that we have nothing to fear. More than anything I like what you said about rebuke those thoughts. This is something I am putting in practice and trying to remind myself to pray and rebuke anytime they surface!! Thank you for this wonderful reminder!!

    Great post! Letting go of the fear is something that I struggle with daily. I rebuke all negative thoughts, but then that dang fear comes back in. I continue to pray for strength, and through him I know it will come. Thank you for reminding me of a few things today.

    mmm, Caroline … I’m reading about fear right and left these days. Writing about it, too … because it has its way of worming into our souls and immobilizing us, keeping us from making decisions that are wise and healthy and strong.

    But I’m so encouraged because even the women at the tomb were afraid … yet filled with joy, Matthew says. Don’t you love how even though fear comes to call, the fruit of the Spirit remains. Nothing and nobody can touch His presence in our lives.

    I loved chatting with you today …

    Love the new picture…so beautiful πŸ™‚

    Thanks for this reminder. I do struggle with control that stems from fear. Fear that comes from not fully trusting Him and His plan for me! In this waiting process, I am learning to release that control and shed fear.

    Beautiful post! I think the top things God has been teaching me throughout this infertility journey is to trust him and not to fear. And he keeps repeating those basic lessons over and over to me, so I know I am still in need of practice, but I’m learning. Thanks for the reminder!
