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. 1 John 4:18

The Christian faith is a tremendous thing. It can be the greatest force in your life, and it’s your hope for life here and life beyond. It can do anything for you that you will admit that it can.

Faith can take the limitations from you and set you free from fear. If you have a fear that you don’t seem to be able to handle, bring it to Jesus and apply His techniques for overcoming it. Say to yourself, “I now determine I will be rid of this problem.” That is the first step. You determine to get rid of it. Then surrender the problem to Jesus Christ absolutely, and believe that you will be relieved of your fear.

Try these four action steps to help you release your fears and fill your heart with Christ’s love.

1. List your three greatest fears on a sheet of paper. To focus faith to overcome your fears, look at them, one at a time, and repeat: “I believe, I believe, I believe” after each one.

2. To focus the power of love on your fear, memorize the text: “There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear” (1 John 4:18).

3. Memorize Jesus’ promise regarding His teaching: “If you remain in Me... ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you” (John 15:7).

4. Listen to Jesus. Don’t spend all of your prayer time talking. Take time to relax physically and be completely quiet, so you can hear Him talking to you.
