Perfect Love

God has blessed us with a wonderful family and friends. We love them. But is that love perfect? Amidst the love we receive, sometimes a strange fear occupies our heart for no reason. But the Word of God says that “There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear.” (I John 4:18). No other love other than God’s love is perfect. We read in the scriptures, Greater love hath no man than this that a man lay down his life for his friends” (John 15:13). Where God’s love is, there is no fear, because God’s perfect love takes away fear and you shall have victory.  Don’t we read in the Bible, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7).

There was a Baseball champion and when he was about to go for a baseball game he got a phone call from a stranger and in the call someone threatened him that if he goes for the match, he will be shot dead. After he kept his phone, he was disturbed and fear crept in. He came out from the pavilion and saw whether someone suspicious is there. But he saw only his father who encouraged him saying, “Don't worry you come out and play. I have kept all the security for you.” This motivated the young player and he was sure that his dad would never let things go wrong. He played the game with great enthusiasm and won the game adding fame to his team and his family.
We fear about several things. Fear of life, fear of death, fear about our future, fear of losing a loved one, fear of examinations and it proceeds endlessly. Look up to Jesus to overcome all your fears. Only by walking in the way and truth of our Lord Jesus, you will we be able to understand that the Almighty God is with you. Bible assures, “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” (Deuteronomy 31:6). Just as how the young baseball champion trusted that his father would protect him, you do not have to be afraid of anything that bothers you. All you need to do is enter the ground by putting your trust in the Lord. Perhaps you need to prepare yourself to play the game of life in the most appropriate and acceptable manner and it is necessary to pray to the Lord that He will be with you and give you victory. May the Lord reveal to you His ways and guide you through His will. Have a blessed day!
Gracious heavenly Father, Your love has driven out all the fear that was within me. God, You are my Father and You guard my steps. I thank You and I am always grateful to Your love. There is no perfect love other than Yours, Lord. Help me to share Your Love with one another and build Your Kingdom on this earth.  Bless this day and may Your love flow out of me as rivers of joy. I pray this, in Jesus’ mighty name, Amen!
