Perfect Love Casteth out Fear
1 John 4:18
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
We’re living in a very different world today than what it was even 10 years ago. Recent moral challenges to our nation has many Christians wondering if sensible and intelligent people are in our government anymore. We have candidates running for the highest political office in our county and Biblical morals are tossed aside while debate on environmental issues, social give away programs, abortion on demand led by the misleading label “Planned Parenthood”, LGBT rights trumping Christian values, and our nation increasingly turning its back on the nation of Israel, have become normal ideology for this once great nation. We are in a time where it is easy to become fearful for the future of our nation, our children, and in my case, our grandchildren. While it would be easy to lash out against individuals, and specific organizations, the Bible tells us our enemy isn’t flesh and blood, but spiritual beings, demons, and the devil himself.
So don’t get sidetracked waging war against some person or group. Instead pray for them. Get group prayers going for the direction of our nation, and be consistent and steady. When ungodly groups take the microphone and shout for their rights, don’t let it get under your skin. Instead do as Jesus did while on the cross. He said “Father, forgive them for they don’t know what they do”. Read the verse for today’s inspiration, and let it sink in. If you’re fearful for our nation, and our future, let perfect love reign in your heart, and cast that devilish fear out. In doing so, you paralyze the devils power over you. It’s a powerful weapon, Love. Just Do It!
