Dealing With the Spirit of Fear, part 2

dealingfear2

Fear is an absolute deadly force in anyone’s life. Last week, we took a look at the truth that perfect love casts out fear. Today, I want to show you how perfected love can become a reality in your life.

The first thing you need to do is remain in fellowship with God. The more time you spend abiding in Him and being aware of His presence in your life, the more your eyes will begin to change to see others the way God sees them. 

Too often, we look at other folks and see them as we want to see them. Often that means we see some people who we think deserve our love and others who don’t. We make distinctions about who deserves our time, attention, and love. The God-kind of love, though, doesn’t see distinctions. It loves other people without condition and with no strings attached.

So the first thing you do to mature your love walk is to spend time with God. Fellowship with Him on a regular basis, and you’ll start seeing people the way He sees them. They will become valuable and precious to you, regardless of how they look, where they came from, or how they treat you. That’s the first step to walking in perfected love and keeping fear far from your life. I’ll talk about the second key to getting rid of fear next fear next week.

    Dealing with fear; awesome message and something all can relate to. I know when it enters but I get rid of it ASAP cause I know this is the enemy using this deadly force, It last for a second or two, it creeps up my back sort of I can actually feel it. But I say no this is not of God at all, I demand the demon of fear to be gone by the blood o the Lamb and it is gone. Amen!!!!
