I John 4:18 Quiet Time

(I 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.)


Agape love will drive out every fear,
For it displays the perfect will of God.
Considering another’s need is dear,
Whereas a move by angst is surely flawed.
Whatever fear you have will hold you back
From all the gifts that comes from perfect love,
Until the enemies of God attack
And you’re trapped in the flesh and all thereof.
There is no fear in love, it cannot be.
One draws you back, the other draws you in.
Surrender all to Christ and you will see
His Presence casts out fear for love within.
     The only thing to fear is God above;
     With awe and reverence to Him in love.
