My love casts out all fear.
1 John 4:18
Such love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear. If we are afraid, it is for fear of punishment, and this shows that we have not fully experienced his perfect love. NLT
If you are afraid that you will not measure up to My expectations dear one, simply yield to My reassuring love, and love will cast out everything that makes you feel afraid. For fear cannot abide in the presence of My everlasting love and anxiety is no match for My perfect peace.
So if you are struggling with any expression of fear today, be comforted in knowing that you don't have to fight this battle in your own strength. Just invite My love to do the fighting for you and watch as My infinite affection for you drives out any misguided notions of who I am. For there is nothing you could ever do that would make Me love you anymore than I do right now.
And as you are able to believe you are completely accepted in the Beloved in this very moment, all fear of punishment will cease. And you will know at a deeper heart level that there is nothing in all creation that can ever separate you from My love in Christ. Today, tomorrow and forever.
