Fear can destroy love and marriages. Satan is at the root of all fear, but we experience fear from many facets of life including past hurts, disappointments, unknowns, illnesses, finances, job loss and more. Fear is something that feeds, breeds, and spreads. The good news is that faith and love destroy fear. The Bible says, “Perfect love casts out fear” (1 John 4:18, NKJV). God told Joshua not to be afraid because He would be with him wherever he went. (Joshua 1:9) David wrote in Psalm 56:3-4 that whenever he was afraid he put his trust in God. God tells us: “Do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will help you; I will hold on to you with My righteous right hand.” (Isaiah 41:10) Where there is unconditional love and faith in God, fear has no room to fester and spread. Take time to talk to each other about any fears you have and then pray about them. Look up Bible verses about fear and anytime you feel fear creeping in, say those verses out loud.
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. — 1 John 4:18 (NKJV)
