TREM Devotional - There Is No Fear In Love


Dr. Mike Okonkwo TREM

TREM Devotional 2 February 2022 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – There Is No Fear In Love


TOPIC: There Is No Fear In Love 

“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.” 1 John 4:18 (KJV)

There is no fear in love! That was what caught my attention when I was studying that verse of the scriptures. That part jumped out of the pages. It jumped out at me and I was asking God: What is this? He said: “Read it again”. There is no fear in love! That is powerful! “Perfect love casteth out fear, because fear has torment…”

Child of God, when you understand the perfect love of God, it eliminates the fear of sickness, disease, disappointment, distress, confusion, and the fear of death. Fear brings torment. If you are fearful, it shows that you have not been made perfect in love. We love Him because He first loved us.

One of the greatest weapons of the devil is fear. The devil introduced this fear at the fall. You see, God’s relationship with Adam has always been very robust and very cordial. They enjoyed themselves. They had fellowship together in the garden. And one of the days, God came as usual. But before He came, Adam had doubted the identity he had with God because he listened to another voice. Adam said with his mouth: “And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid. And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?” Genesis 3:10-11 KJV.

So, you see that fear was introduced when Adam doubted who God made him and what God called him. Each time you doubt your identity in God, you will be fearful. But when you receive His love and you constantly see yourself as the beloved of God, there will be no room for fear in your heart.
