Perfect Love Casts Out Fear

Hi D____,

I saw this note and just wanted to acknowledge my appreciation for your patience and my own gratitude to our heavenly Father that you are coming out of your panic.
A deep abiding faith in our God’s love and in His total sovereignty will drive out any sense of panic. The scriptures actually reveal that very Truth in these verses:

1Jn 5:2  By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.
1Jn 5:3  For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
1Jn 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.

We all have concerns of this life with which we struggle. But those concerns are subdued by our faith in the love of a Father who we know to be “working all things after the counsel of His own will”.
You continue to rely on your loving heavenly Father to give you the faith to face every trial, and day by day that faith will grow until all fears will be subdued to the confidence that all things are working together for good to them who love God and are called according to His purpose.

Rom 8:28  And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Your brother in that faith,
Mike
