“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. We love Him because He first loved us.” 1 John 4:18-19 NKJV
Let God’s perfect love cast out any and all fear. Jesus said to have faith in God and to be of good cheer!
Anxiety in the heart weighs it down. Thank the Lord for answered prayer, instead–that He is turning things around…
Reversals may not seem possible, the world being an imperfect place…but, remember, where sin abounded, there did, much more, God’s amazing grace!
