PSALM 56:11 “In God I have put my trust; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?” (NKJV)
Fear is a strong force that keeps us from achieving our full potential, fear keeps us in our own cocoon restricting us from venturing beyond our known boundaries. We fear about our future, about the security of our jobs, about the future of our children, about our old age, about our adversaries…etc. We try to do a lot of things to hide and to get over our fears. Running away or hiding our fears is not going to solve the problem, fears have to be dispelled and the Bible gives us the best formula to conquer and dispel fear – trust in God.
1 John 4:18 says “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts away all fear…” Perfect love will cast away all fear, Jesus is the epitome of perfect love. 1 John 4:8 says that “…God is love”. So, when we trust in God, we trust in His perfect love and this perfect love as revealed in Christ Jesus will dispel all fears from our lives. When Jesus is with us there is no need for us to fear anything or anybody because no power on earth or hell can ever touch us or hurt us.
