Finding God in your fears.

There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. 

As ordinary people, we become scared easily. Scared that we are not good enough, scared that we wont be able to pay our next bill and fear that we are to far from God. Fear is a hindrance in our life and causes us to try and do things on our own instead of relying on God. We start to fulfill our life with temporary pleasures that leave us more empty, instead of relying on God to give us joy and to fulfill us in a way that only he can.

Being fearful is saying that you don’t trust God to take care of you and protect you and to bring you through whatever trial it is that you may be going through. Do you remember when you were a little kid and when something scared you and you ran to your parents for protection? Once you were in their embrace you no longer felt fear; this is because you trust your parents to take care of you. When something in life scares us and we don’t trust our heavenly father to be with us, our fear will only stay and we will only be continuing a life of fear and hindrance.


2 Timothy 1:7

For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.


When we have fear in our lives, and not power and self control, we are no longer living in the spirit of God. Put on the full armor of God and cast your fears onto him.


1 Peter 5:7
Cast all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.


Give your fears to God, your anxiety and burdens.  You do this in the prayer closet, pray to him, call out to him and cry out his name. When I am fearful, I spend time with God, I worship him and I pray to him. Our God is a very approachable God; talk to him like you talk your friends. Tell God why your scared, why your doubtful and call out to him. The same God who picked you up and saved you is the same God that will squash you fears.


1 John 4:18

There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear.


There is no fear in love and love casts out fear. Love your lord your God with all your heart. Pour out your love to him and ask him to show you his love. Once you are drowning in the love of God, then there is nothing to fear nor be afraid of.



Matthew 8:23-27

23 Then he got into the boat and his disciples followed him. 24 Suddenly a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. 25 The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!” 26 He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm. 27 The men were amazed and asked, “What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!”



25 The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!” 26 He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?”

In the above story, Jesus’s disciples were afraid that they were going to drown and die. Then Jesus spoke a bone chilling statement that probably shook the disciples at their core. Jesus told them that they had little faith. They had little faith in their God to save them.
When we are in fear and are in trials, we must have faith that God will save us, have faith in who he is and do not doubt him. God is not going to leave you to die, he is going to mold you into his image. There is no reason to be afraid in this life when we are following Christ. We must trust in him and have Faith that he will carry us through, as he is God and we are not.

Love is the answer.

Where is the love of Christ anymore? Gee, I honestly don’t know anymore. Everytime you turn on the television, all you see is hate. On Facebook you’ll see Christians constantly fight with each other over differences in minor theology. This world is sure in a down spiral. Christians are supposed to be the world changers , the dreamers, those who spread the news of Christ, but from what I’ve seen; it’s no wonder many are leaving or running away from Christianity.

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t have a pessimistic view on life and society. I’m very optimistic that the love of Christ will start shining through his creation, but only if we let the spirit of God flood his church.
Let’s stop hating other people, lets stop putting other people down. Love is the answer, not hate. As I sit here and think, it hurts my head because it confuses me so much on why there is so much hate.

Here where I’m from, America, we proclaim to be the greatest Christian nation but it is not reflected in the way our society acts. It’s time for not just the young millinieals to start standing up for what is right, but it is time for everyone to link arms and sing one unified song underneath the flag of Jesus Christ.

My philosophy is, if it doesn’t affect the gospel of salvation , stop fighting about who is right over small stuff. Lets unify under Christ and make this world a better place. 

Love is the answer for everything, not hate.
