Is fear one of those words hugely mistranslated in our minds? ♥
How could Abraham fear the Father.....
Abraham clearly knew that he and Isaac would be returning back down the mountain (Genesis 22:5)
Also in Genesis 15:1, The Lord says to Abram, 'DO NOT FEAR, Abram, I am a shield to you; your reward shall be very great.'
Abraham did not fear the Father, HE KNEW the Father.
When you KNOW LOVE, there is no fear.
There are 365 verses in Scripture that advise us to not be afraid. Jesus tells Peter and the disciples on the boat as Peter is about to walk on water... 'Take courage, it is I, do not be afraid!'
One verse for each day of the year! A daily reminder that Papa does not want you to be afraid. There is no fear in love because perfect love casts out fear. ♥
Thank you Father! ♥
