Love drives out fear

Then the Lord said to Joshua, "Do not be afraid or discouraged." ~ Joshua 8:1 (NLT)

There is no room in love for fear. Well-formed love banishes fear. Since fear is crippling, a fearful life—fear of death, fear of judgment—is one not yet fully formed in love. ~ 1 John 4:18 (MSG)

God's love chases fear from the driver's seat in our lives.
God, I'm grateful that you love me. Forgive me for failing to tap into your love -- for allowing my fears to affect the way I make decisions and act. Use your love to reform my heart. I'm going to give the boot to fear as a force. Amen.
