1 John 4:18

"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."

We are living in such a dynamic collision right now: an unprecedented genuine health pandemic, and yet there still stands the immovable reality of PERFECT LOVE from the Lord Jesus. There may be a real crisis on this little planet called earth, but remember our Lord commands the stars and the heavens! And in Matthew 10:30, Jesus tells us that even our hairs are numbered. The King who created all we know, who demonstrated extraordinary sacrificial love for us on the Cross 2,000 years ago, and who counts our hairs today, will He really abandon us now? NO! I say fear is no match for the Love of God!

Our challenge as believers right now is to live in that love, no matter the intimidation of fear. Many things in this world will be shaken in the present and future, but we live in the Unshakeable Kingdom of Heaven!

Take this moment in prayer, and ask God for His perfect love to be your anchor right now, and in the coming days.
