The Word of God says that “perfect love casts out fear.” But it also can work the other way…fear casts out love. When we are filled with anxiety and fear, we cannot truly love others. We may respond harshly, or be short with others, and ofttimes it is because we’re anxious inside. But God’s love perfected in us casts out fear, and we must allow daily the peace of Christ to rule and reign in our hearts. Real peace is possible for the believer!
