Confronting Your Fears (1 John 4:18-19)

In the movie Divergent, the main characters all need to face a grueling set of tests in order to join a team of warriors known as the Dauntless. During the final stage of training, the heroine, Tris, must face her worst imagined fears when an injected neurological serum causes her to vividly live through them in her mind.

Most of us do not need to be reminded of our worst fears. We are constantly confronted with them; risks of a broken relationship, possible job loss at a downsizing company, the imminent loss of a ill loved one. God understands our fears and does not abandon us. He gave us His Son, Jesus Christ, so that if we place our trust in Him, He will allows us to cast out this fear. We can truly be dauntless when we rely upon Jesus Christ!

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. We love Him because He first loved us.
1 John 4:18-19

Love and trust the Lord; seek His will in your life.
