When you see an animal in the middle of the road do you swerve to avoid it or punch the gas? Your answer to this question will tell me all I need to know about you lol! Imma plead the 5th. How many times has fear stood in the middle of the road, staring at us in the face, and daring us to swerve the car?
There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. We love because he first loved us. 1 John 4:18-19
If I want fear to leave, then I have to punch the pedal of love and run it over! Avoidance is like putting a band-aid on a bullet hole. It’s a temporary fix. Put love in drive, and skrr skrr.
