Perfect Love


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. -1 John 4:18 NIV

When you put your faith in God, He will show up big and mightily. The enemy knows that in order to keep that from happening, he must defeat you before you turn your eyes to Jesus. He does that through attacks, like directing your focus away from God and onto your fears. Even though the enemy is doing this, you still hold the key and authority to defeat him.

1 John 4 holds truths that you need to know and grab hold of as you enter into a relationship with God. Verse 4 says, “You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world”.

You are a spirit being and you have the creator of the world on your side. Even after evil entered into God’s perfect creation, He sent His son to take the key’s from death, hell, and the grave. That means that when Jesus died and rose again He defeated evil and gained you the authority to live in victory. When you choose to live with Jesus as the Lord and Savior of your life, His Spirit enters into your spirit. You now hold the authority of Jesus Christ.

You have the authority to claim victory in your life; you have the authority to cast away fear and live in freedom; and you have the authority over your insecurities and doubts.

Prayer Focus
