1 John 4:18 “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.” Proverbs 29:25 “The fear of man brings a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord shall be safe.”
Leader, I bless you with valuing the power of love, not the hollow nothingness we are fed by the entertainment sector, but love connected to a Power strong enough for you to break through any challenge without fear tripping you up. I bless you with a life without the torment of fear. I bless you with being made perfect in love – knowing that God loves you with an insatiable love, even when it doesn’t make sense, even in the midst of a myriad of questions you might have about Him. His heart is to see you thrive in your relationship with Him, everything else flows from that. I bless you with the consequences of that love, which includes not being debilitated in your thinking and actions because of man’s opinion, circumstances and uncertainty. I bless you with distinguishing between the fear of man, which is a trap, and the fear of God. I bless you with the Spirit of God resting on you; I bless you with His wisdom and understanding, His counsel and might, His knowledge, and the reverence due to God, which is the beginning of wisdom.
