The birthplace of courage is His love.

When fear tries
to grab hold of me
God doesn’t say,
you stop being so afraid!
Haven’t I taught you better?
No, He says,
“I love you”
those three words
remove the fear
those three words
help me see
they drive me
’cause if I know He loves me
if I truly know He loves me
nothing
else
matters

God’s not going to scold you for your fears. He’s not looking down at you in disgust for your doubts. He knows the best way to remove fear is to impart a true and rich knowledge of how much He loves and cares for you. The Bible says, perfect love drives out fear (see 1 John 4:18). If you know He loves you, you can apply your faith to believe Him for anything! If you know He loves you, you can stand before His presence even when you’ve just made the biggest mistake in your life! Faith works by love.

“…Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you.” Jeremiah 31:3, NKJV

Prayer: Father God, you are so good and so rich in your love for me. Thank you for loving me the way you do. You don’t demand that I stop being afraid. You remove fear by helping me see your love. Keep on loving me Father. Keep on revealing to me the length, width, depth and height of your love. Let it make me bold. Let it make me brave. Let it make me a more confident woman in you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

(Read 1 John 4:17-19 and Galatians 5:6 for deeper understanding)
