Be Perfected In My Perfect Love

Word of the Day

Beloved, you must at all cost follow My example and be with Me like I was and am with the Father and all wrong fear will fall away (John 10:38). In fact, perfect love casts out fear. When you trust in Me and My unrelenting, unfading, ever-enduring, merciful and graced filled love for you—fear is cast out. Cast out is not a gentle word. It means to remove or throw with a violent action…to send, thrust, strike with great force. This is the power of love.

The key is to know that I love you and out of My great love you are enabled to love others. Being in this great love of Mine assures you and secures you in a safe place where fear does not abide…secures you and causes you to crave…to desire My beholding gaze…to receive My constant coming…My constant drawing near to you…and to do so with delight and anticipation. This anticipation is not only to experience communion but to relish with excitement the revealing of all hindrances that keep you from being fully perfected in love.

It is much faster to go through something than to go all the way around it. Remember the Israelites as they traveled around and around the mountain. To go through is hard sometimes but to go around and around is wearisome and robs hope…causes fear of failure…causes a fear of Me that denies My intrinsic goodness. Time has come to short circuit this process and be immersed in love.

I am indeed the Alpha and the Omega…the beginning and the end. I have already seen both the beginning and the end… and all in between. I really do know best. I have seen it all…seen all you have done or ever will do and still I behold you…look intently upon you with adoration and a joyful heart. Why should you ever let something get in the way and cause you to fear when I loved while you were yet a sinner…while you were lost in your own self-indulgence….may it never be…

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love. (1 John 4:18 Amplified)

Prayer

Lord, I am so blessed that there is no punishment in You for me or any of Your children. Help me to realize when the thought of being punished comes to mind when I think of things I have done or said I am operating in fear. Fear will not make way for true repentance with the power to change. Realizing the depth of Your great love will cause me to receive correction with joy because in the process I know I will be changed. You are ever merciful and kind to me. In fact, Your kindness leads me to repentance and I am cleansed by the watering of Your Word.

As I submit to Your love, fear is cast away from me with great force. Love declares to all fear in my life, “Be gone for she/he is loved with an everlasting love. Draw near to me once more. Let me live in the constant coming of Your Presence. Teach me to move with you…to move in the ebb and flow of the Spirit. You are my beginning and my end…my all in all and I proclaim today that You know best. Amen

Reflect and Journal

1. Love of others flows out of loving Him. Loving self flows out of loving Him. Have you had a hard time loving others or yourself? Selah (Meditate)

2. Since He has seen the beginning from the end and has given You many promises, what should your attitude and countenance be? Does this knowledge have power over fear in your life? If it doesn’t, you might be taking some extra trips around the mountain. Ask Him to reveal all hindrances to you.
