Fear

Fear. An emotional distress of impending doom, real or perceived. It creates a physical response from the brain to the rest of the body for a fight or flee action. If left unchecked, it degrades into irrational behaviors, threatening health and paralysis.

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. 1 John 4:18

Fear robs you of the ability to enjoy the life God wants you to have; the victorious life, the abundant life. The quality of your life is not measured by how much possession you have, but how free you are free from fear – how much you experience His perfect love. Let the perfect love of Jesus cast out all fear in your life. Perfect love has no fear.

FEAR; River of Living WaterHe who believes in Me [who cleaves to and trusts in and relies on Me] as the Scripture has said, From his innermost being shall flow [continuously] springs and rivers of living water. John 7:38

The Holy Spirit connects believers to the Father and Jesus, His Son. So any fear about being disconnected and abandoned is gone; the Creator of the Universe dwells within His people, sustains them, assures them and will accomplish the impossible through them.

But sometimes, we just loses focus and let fear gotten the better of us. Even faith giants in the Bible like King David and Elijah feared. Even Peter feared -> right in front of Jesus, in the storm.

Peter: Master, save me!
Immediately Jesus reached for Peter and caught him.

Jesus: O you of little faith. Why did you doubt and dance back and forth between following Me and heeding fear?   Matthew 14:30-31

Even so, our one cry will reach the highest heaven. And our rescue will come; in legions.

But there is a better way. When we behold our trust in the Lord tightly, even in the midst of the storm, we open the floodgates of our beings and the rivers of life will gush forth with living water.

No obstacle will still stand.

Fear, Psalms 91:2-4

“My shelter, my mighty fortress, my God, I place all my trust in You.”
For He will rescue you from the snares set by your enemies who entrap you and from deadly plagues. Like a bird protecting its young, God will cover you with His feathers, will protect you under His great wings; His faithfulness will form a shield around you, a rock-solid wall to protect you. Psalms 91:2-4
