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. 
(1 John 4:18 NKJV)
Fear is the devil’s doorway into the life of a believer. When you allow fear entrance to your life, spiritual forces are released that open you up to the works of the enemy.

Fear is simply faith that has been perverted. Fear is actually faith in the devil’s ability to harm you. You should never allow fear to have any place in your thoughts. The way to combat fear is with the Word of God and love, because we know that perfect love casts out fear.

God loves you and His plans for you are good. It is never God’s plan that you suffer from any kind of torment brought on by fear. The root of fear is doubt that God really loves you. But when you take the time to meditate on God’s perfect, pure, and unconditional love for you, that love will cast out the fear.Once you have a revelation of the depth of your Father God’s love for you, you will fear nothing.
The Word of God says, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7 NKJV). What is to fear when God is on your side?

Meditate on the cross. Think about the love God has for you. Receive that love. Soak in that love. When you know and believe in God’s love towards you, fear has to leave. So clothe yourself in the love of God and get rid of the fear!

Confession: My heavenly Father loved me so much that He sent His only Son to die for me, and to win for me complete victory on the cross. I receive that love today. And being made perfect in that love, I declare that fear and torment have to go!

Author Biography

Jerry Savelle
Web site: Jerry Savelle Ministries International
Dr. Jerry Savelle was an average, blue-collar man who was struggling and needed God's help. While he considered himself a "nobody," when he became a believer God told him not to worry about it because He was a master at making champions out of nobodies. God has since taken Dr. Savelle from being a constant quitter to a man who knows how to stand on the Word of God until victory is experienced. Because of the life-changing combination of God's faithfulness and Dr. Savelle's "no quit" attitude, his life is totally different than it was thirty-eight years ago.
