“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.” 1 John 4:18
The more I sit with the Lord and learn from the Holy Spirit, is the more I have come to understand that I really have just begun to know God and His ways. It is truly amazing.
He is truly amazing.
His ways are truly amazing and the strategies that He has revealed to us through His words to overcome the enemy are indeed amazing. Yes, amazing is the only word that I could use to describe God and His ways.
One such amazing strategy is love. It is the strategy that Jesus himself employed while He was on earth and it is what we have to use as we live on earth if we want to overcome and prosper.
Love is simple yet complex. It is simple to execute and powerful in its effect. In fact, from experience, I can say without doubt, that love is the most powerful weapon in our arsenal against the enemy.
When we are operating in love, nothing the enemy tries to do to us will succeed. You see, for negativity to work, it must meet with negativity. If it meets with positivity, then one cancels out the other. If negativity meets negativity then the results is exactly what the enemy intended. Then, we are defeated.
Perfect love casts out all fear, the Bible clearly states. Why? Because love is positive and fear is negative. Positive will always cancel out negativity.
Love will always cancel out hate and evil. The power in love is greater than the power in hate or evil.
Today, determine to live in the power of love. That is living in the power of God, for God is love. When you do that, no evil will come nigh you, a thousand will fall by you, but not on you. You are protected by love.
Love the Lord with all your heart and love your neighbor as you love yourself.
The power of love is truly amazing. Live in it today and reap the benefits as you go along life’s way.
