As we look further into God’s kaleidoscope of His love and goodness you’ll find there isn’t a picture that causes you to be fearful. There is nothing in God pushing fear into your heart or mind. Fear comes from outward sources. It doesn’t come from your heart unless you allow it to settle and motivate your life. Don’t do that. There is no fear in love, in God’s love. God is love. He isn’t full of fear, nor does He put fear on or in any of us.
When we find ourselves in fear, many times it’s because we’ve allowed outward circumstances to determine the resolve of our heart and thinking. You can go from peaceful thoughts to fearful thoughts as soon as you let the fearful thoughts stay. But you have already been delivered from fear of any kind. It’s not to have a foothold in your life because you’re a child of God.
Again, let’s see what Paul says in Romans 8:15, ESV. “(15) For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!” Paul emphasized this truth to Timothy when he told him, “for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control [sound mind]” in 2 Timothy 1:7, ESV.
As a believer, you have His power, His love, and a sound mind in Him, not any fear. You’re His heir, His child, so you have the same identity, as God’s child. When we begin to fear, we’re dwelling on lies and untruth. Any thinking that takes away our identity in Christ, of who we are in Him, is not true. Many believers haven’t learned the truth of this verse. They don’t continue to meditate on who they are as a believer.
Simply put, when you look through your kaleidoscope of God’s love, you won’t find anything to make you fearful. You’ll continue to find expressions of who you are in Him. Meditate on this as His child, an heir of God, and fear will be far from you.
