Week 4: Freeing Fear

1 John 4:18 NIV

18 There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.

Fear today has crippled a lot of people today from living the quality of life that God has for us.

The quality of life should be a direct reflection of the King!

The enemy knows if he can plant fear in your heart, he can limit the effectiveness of your purpose.

Fear is a spirit and that spirit is not given by God!

2nd Timothy 1:7 NKJV

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

2nd Timothy 1:7 AMPC

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity (of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear), but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control.

Could it be that when you operating out of fear, you are not disciplined, and you have no self-control?

Could it be that when you are operating out of fear, your mind is out of balance?

Could it be that when you are operating out of fear, you are not operating from who God created you to be?

We need God’s love!

The opposite of love is not hate, the opposite of love is fear.

Hatred breeds from fear.

Oftentimes, we allow our fear to turn into hatred for others.

The enemy wants to make sure there is division in the body of Christ and among the people of God.

He knows that when there is division, eventually what is divided will fall.

Fear leads to hatred which leads to division.

John 14:6 NIV

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

1 John 4:18 NIV

18 There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.

James 1:17 NIV

17 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.

A complete love completes us!

A lot of us allow fear to complete us and we reap the benefits of an incomplete life.

We should feel safe in God’s arms!

 

Let’s Get Shifty

How do we free fear from our life and feel safe?

Proverbs 18:24 TPT

24 Some friendships don’t last for long,
    but there is one loving friend who is joined to your heart[
    closer than any other!

1 John 4:11-12 NIV

11 Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. 12 No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.

Proverbs 29:25 AMPC

25 The fear of man brings a snare, but whoever leans on, trusts in, and puts his confidence in the Lord is safe and set on high.

1 John 4:13-16 NIV

13 This is how we know that we live in him and he in us: He has given us of his Spirit. 14 And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. 15 If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in them and they in God. 16 And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.
