“Fear thrives in the absence of love. Fear will dominate your identity until you begin to understand the unending, never failing, ever-gracious waterfall of love that your Creator has for you. He holds your future. He loves you perfectly. He accepts you unconditionally. Lead like you believe this to be true” (Scroggins).
Fear can paralyze us, it keeps us from serving God and serving others. We need to approach every situation with the confidence that we loved by God no matter what! When you know this to be true you can lead like ever before.
When you know that God loves you, you will feel empowered to stand up for what is right, motivated to share the gospel with others and driven to lovingly sacrifice for the benefit of someone else.
Satan wants you to be afraid, but God created you to be BOLD!
“There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love. We love because he first loved us” (1 John 4:18-20)
