‭‭1 John‬ ‭4:18‬ “There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.”

When we fully receive God’s love for us, we no longer live life in fear because we understand that He loves us so much so that we don’t have to worry about anything.

For example, when we understand that God loves us, we aren’t afraid to give our resources to others because we know that God is our provider and will cause others to give to us when we give (Luke 6:38).

Or, when others wrong us and God tells us to continue to be kind and demonstrate His love to them, we can do so without fear of looking foolish, or being taken advantage of, or not getting the satisfaction of putting those people in their place because, we know that God has us covered and has promised to fight our battles (Romans 12:19).  

Or, when the world says we should worry about our children, we don’t fear because we know that God loves our children more than we do. So we pray and trust Him and proceed with confidence that He keeps our children protected and that the seed of the righteous is blessed (2 Thessalonians 3:3, Psalm 112:2). 

When we receive God’s perfect Love, we live life with no fear; we trust Him completely and live a life of love freely.
