“There is no fear in love, but perfect love drives out fear because fear has to do with punishment, and so one who fears is not yet perfect in love.” 1 John 4:18
I am amazed with the hunger and thirst of this world with power. Engineers and scientists are getting to outdo one another by milking power from the earth – geothermal, from the wind, from the sun-solar, from the ocean waves and from gas, natural or fossil. People of this world can’t just live another day without power. If you live in Angeles City, Philippines and got your power out for one day you will have pails of sweat out from you. If you live in Niskayuna, New York and got your power out in a winter cold night, you will have to wear five fleece jackets to get you through the night. This world lives and dies with power.
We hunger and try to search for power everywhere. We look for it from our degrees, from our money, or from our position. And yet all these things do not satisfy nor empower. God’s love for us is ever available thus the power of His love. God’s perfect and unconditional love for us drives out fear. God’s love is all out. When we recognize His love for us, we have the power of His love. There is power to defeat temptation and weakness and not fear the spiritual enemy. There is power to overcome difficulties and not fear failure. There is power to go beyond our abilities and not fear limitation. There is power to face each problem and not fear solving it by mistake. There is much confidence in living in God’s love and favor. You and I live forever and will never die with the power of His love.
