i had a dream that i was telling a girlfriend that i was afraid of something happening, she immediately responds "no, that's not going to happen."
in my heart i don't like that, when people act like they know what will happen...how do they know?
but in retrospect, the lesson the Lord is teaching me is to disagree with fear. that's what she was doing in my dream, disagreeing with fear! it had nothing to do with what will or won't happen in the future, but everything with Fear. our enemy is fear. and yes, it does affect the future!
1 John 4:18 (New King James Version)
18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.
i need to be filled with more Love and move and live in that. i have been realizing that fear is freezing me from doing so. from little fears like--what will they think of me? if i do something for this neighbor, i'm leaving another neighbor out! ah! so i do nothing. very frustrating.
Jesus please let your perfect love come in and cast away all our fears!!
