I have begun a journey of finding out more about God’s love for me. There more I understand it and try to comprehend it I am blown away and driven to tears. That God loved me so much that He gave His only Son that I should not perish. It is literally beyond me how much God loves us.
Throughout my search for self-worth, I had been blinded from the love that is available to me through Christ. See I knew there was a void and I tried to fill this void many ways and failed.What determines your self-worth? My StoryWhat determines your self-worth? My Story
In my blindness I became afraid. I can testify that I lived under fear for so long. At times I could not even get out of the house.
Fear of failure, fear of the unknown, fear of being different, fear of people, fear of not being loved, fear of trying new things.. The list could go on forever. I felt caged, my heart was sick, it was so heavy on me and I hated myself.
I thank God that he opened my eyes. Fear was a weapon the devil has used to keep me from my destiny and purpose in God. The revelation God gave me was that l needed to receive his love, to let his love grow in me, to understand it so much so that it becomes engraved in me. That I am loved beyond measure. How can l be afraid when understanding the love God has for me and when l begin to love God so much in return. You would do anything for those you love.
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
God’s love for me drives out fear. I am no longer a slave to fear. Yes at times I have to confess it on a daily basis and remind myself that l have no reason to be afraid. Fear takes away joy, peace and freedom.
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
Prayer: Dear Father help us to grow into sufficient understanding of your love for us. That we may be bold to walk in the power You made available to us. In the name of JESUS CHRIST, AMEN
I hope you are encouraged
God loves you
