Why is this true? Is it true in all relationships or just in relationship with God? Perfect love throws fear out of the house, when you are living in a relationship with infinite love, infinite good, eternal justice: God. The only way that perfect love can cast out fear is if you trust the Being perfectly loving you. If you are imperfectly loved, it is hard to trust. If you are loved by an imperfect person, it is hard to trust, so fear can find residence in your relationship.
Do you trust God? Do you live without fear? If you're like many of us, you navigate fear. How do you fight fear? By TRUSTING. Start in the smallest circle and work outward in your how you trust God.
Such love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear. If we are afraid, it is for fear of punishment, and this shows that we have not fully experienced his perfect love. 1 John 4:18
