Fear is fear itself…whatever you fear, is what you let dictate the bounds of your life… that is why the fear of God should be your only fear.. because God loves no matter what, so you can trust you will NEVER be let down.
If you love God that much, you start to want to listen to everything he commands, even things that include keeping your thoughts clean and your every intention pure. Living innocent as a dove and shrewd as a serpent. And when you do this, he does give you superhuman strength so to speak( Holy Spirit).
Ephesians 1:13-14 New King James Version (NKJV)
13 In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, 14 who[a] is the [b]guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory.
You will find there is nothing to fear, but the fear that you’ll let your Dad in heaven down. (Warning though, there are demons and harsh evilness, that attacks in taking down those who want to fight with the power of Light and Love,( the MOST POWERFUL Force in existence. )
Love is NOT just smooching and hugging, love goes way deeper than that( 1st Cor 13:4-8). Deuteronomy 31:6 becomes evident as long as you stay loyal to God, and he knows he can trust you when looking into your heart.
Love is not fluffy. It is the most beautifully and powerfully, difficult thing in existence; it requires the application and receiving of discipline when one wanders out of love. Love thrives on loyalty, NOT in the easygoing, enjoyment of days- but in the volcanic tumult of deep hardship and struggle
Galatians 6 New King James Version (NKJV)
Bear and Share Burdens
6 Brethren, if a man is [a]overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted. 2 Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. 3 For if anyone thinks himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself. 4 But let each one examine his own work, and then he will have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another. 5 For each one shall bear his own load.
We cannot judge nor try to change a person to be this or that, or tell them ‘you changed, I miss the old you,’ nor judge those with rough edges.
God alone knows a person’s real heart. A person may speak temperamentally, accuse, blame, or cry out emotionally distraught. This is not a fully accurate depiction of their heart, it may show ( yes they definitely need to work on and pray for self-control and attitude improvement), but it shows that there is a lot of despondency inside them, and a lot of pain and still many blows from many people and the world around, while they are fighting hard against an internal struggle.
It is so annoying when you for example, just lost your home, someone in your family fell very ill, you lost your job, and your marriage is gasping for air and fighting to stay alive on one breath, then someone comes along poking fun of you, and you blow up, literally like King Kong, and they say: “WOW! I’d go get some help with that temper.” No. Just have some compassion. That’s it. ( Recall also though that every time King Kong lashed out, he scares everyone to death so they either shoot at him or try to restrain him. So, still one must work on self-control and reciprocating love, especially when you feel like ca ca.) No one smiles nonstop though, as humans we do have emotions, good days and bad days.
We have all had a crazy past, in one way or another, or maybe a crazy state of life currently, it’s no excuse not to move forward, let go of the pain, self-pity, denial, depression, anxiety, self-hatred, grudges, or anger inside ( there are no excuses)..YAH didn’t send Christ for those that were perfect, but for those that were sinners and broken. God is the only way to be set free entirely because he gives us something REAL and WITH ACTUAL PURPOSE to hope for, Faith in all his promises.
Like a perfectly loving ( and ONE and ONLY, all knowing) Father, because that is what he is; He just asks that we listen to Him, ( Psalm 119⭐️⭐️⭐️), because he knows what he is talking about; If only we would ONLY listen “..our peace would be like a river, and our righteousness like the waves of the sea.”
Doctors, lawyers, teachers, athletes, movie stars, Christians, humans all make mistakes, God can’t… He is the ultimate physician, depending on where your Faith lies.
Choosing to sin, not just making unintentional mistakes because we are imperfect, but Making THE Choice To Keep on Sinning, WILL LEAD TO DEATH. By choosing to disobey God, we are choosing a life that will not only be very difficult now, while on this broken Earth, but is causing us to head in a direction of DEATH, and not an everlasting life with God, we have the freewill to choose what we want, now. Crying out to God for forgiveness from the bottom of our heart and the deepest chambers of our soul will bring a person to be ‘born again,’ John 3:7, which causes us to be given the grace to be ‘washed by the blood of Christ,’ who died for us, thus paying for our sin and taking our debt of death for another chance at life, so that we have a new spirit in us that feels conviction to want to obey God and do good. God is light first, then love. God’s definition of love can be found 1st Cor 13:4-8. To hate what is evil is to love what is good. To love what is good, is to love God, who is good. “God is so good.” The first commandment tells us to have no other gods above God; which is to “love God with your whole soul, with your whole heart, and your whole might.” ( Mark 12:30, Psalm31:23, Matt22:37), because God is all-knowing, and he knows what love is, and what it is not. ( 1st Cor 13: 4-8). The world we live in does not uphold 1st Cor 13:4-8, thus, blocking God’s definition of love and creating hatred against what is good. To hate evil is to love good, and to love good looks like God’s definition of love, at 1st Cor13:4-8, which looks like holiness in heaven.
