1 John 4:18 “There is not fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear.”
What causes you fear? Every one of us deals with fear from time to time. Even good things can cause fears. New Jobs, new neighbors, new seasons of life can bring new fears with them. So how can one overcome fears? In 1 John 4 we learn that love is the key. Scripture tells us that love comes from God; love is sacrificial and love drives out fear.
I always enjoy working with entrepreneurs and am always amazed at the courage they have to overcome the fear of failing. This is usually because their love for their work exceeds their fear of failure. It causes them to sacrifice greatly and drives out the fear of falling short.
Jesus loves us with a perfect love. At times we can forget this and try to center our lives on something else. But John tells us to remember Jesus. 
Another consequence of fear is isolation. True love steps into the mess of life rather than walking away. If fear is left unchecked it can eventually lead to hatred. But love causes us to serve those who are not like us. 
How about you today? Is there an unchecked fear in your life? Let God drive out fear and bring it to Him today.   Take a few moments to read and reflect on 1 John 4:7-21 and take the first step to overcoming fear.
God Bless,
