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
Fear is absence of light and love. Fear is loneliness. Fear is not of God. God is perfect love and we are His reflections. Hence, we are perfect. So why do we fear?
We fear that which we can’t control or don’t think we can overcome. We fear missing out. We fear loss and lack. But let’s examine those concepts.
Control is only possible through God. And He defines and determines what control is in our lives. We always get it backwards thinking the creations dictate to the Creator. If you want to control something, control yourself. Control those negative thoughts by not acting upon them. Control the words that come from your mouth. Control your behavior. Don’t blame the enemy for the choices that you made. Own up to your foolishness, realign with God, so the healing can begin.
Egomaniacs are often at the helm of systems of corruption, incarceration, trafficking, slavery, and mass destruction. They ignorantly believe that they have total control because they have helped to reinforce a system that forces others to be subservient to them. The reality is, they are the weak and fearful, not the people who they rule an iron fist over.
It is their inferiority complex and rampant insecurities that lure them into thinking that others are inferior and weak. They keep reciting that until they believe it. Then their insecurities need others to co-sign their beliefs, so they go into recruitment and alignment mode—seeking out others like them or those who will enable them.
They can’t face and overcome their own internal demons, so they take on the characteristics of those demons. They become what they fear. And they confuse that for strength and control.
That ignorance has the enemy’s name written all over it. That is also why the plan will always backfire at some point. The slaver becomes the enslaved. Funny thing, the enslaver is already spiritually and mentally enslaved and doesn’t even know it. God always has the final say.
FOMO is the fear of missing out. Rather than thinking you’re missing out, seek the clarity to see what God is preparing you for. You can’t be distracted by what others are doing, while God is lining things up for you to do greatness in His name. While you’re goose necking everyone else, you’re ignoring the opportunities and lessons in front of you. You are the reason you don’t have the blessings that you desire.
Loss and Lack
We will always live in a deficit if our minds are always obsessed over what we think we don’t have. Or always depressed over what we once had. Our behavior tells God that we don’t have faith in Him and His abilities to do anything and everything. How can you expect more when you don’t have vision? Those without vision will perish.
If you’re depressed over a loved one transitioning, do you fear that the loved one is not still alive—on another level of existence? Do you fear they aren’t in a good place? Or is it just the loneliness of them not being here? Where do you stand in your faith and commitment to God?
Each day you should be living out loud, celebrating the life and legacy of your loved one. You should be doing everything they envisioned and prayed for you. You should be having the experiences they dreamed of having themselves. Honor them through your life.
Fear feeds the enemy. You must starve the enemy.
Take back your life and live it aligned with God’s perfect plan.
Father in You I find light, love, truth, joy, kindness, forgiveness, peace, tranquility, life, understanding, grace, and strength. Remove my fears Father. Help me to see that fear is false evidence appearing real. And that, is not love, and is not You. With fear there is darkness and with You there is only light. I seek Your light and truth Father. I want to live in Your peace. I want to be free. I give You all the glory. Amen.
Love you all,
