Jesus frequently repeated the words, “Do not fear” to those around Him.
But in the face of fearsome circumstances, how does one accomplish it?
Through obedience, love is perfected;
And perfect love casts out fear.
It’s looking up, not down, from the edge of a cliff;
Concentrate on loving the Father, and even in the face of fearsome circumstances,
Fear cannot exist.
Luke 6:47-48 Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like: He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.
Mark 12:30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
1John 2:5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.
1John 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.
Psalm 118:6 The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?
