“And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.” 1 John 4:16.
Our opening scripture says we have known and believed the love that God has to us. That means you are the focus of God’s love.
Where there is love there is boldness. The Bible says, “Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. We love him, because he first loved us.” 1 John 4:17-19.
Therefore we can define faith as fearless confidence in God’s love. This means that when a man or woman is in faith, they have fearless confidence in God’s love. They have faith in God’s good will towards them.
Do you have faith in God’s goodwill towards you? Then why are you afraid that you may not be healed? Why are you afraid that you may not get what you have desired from God? It is because you don’t have faith in His goodwill towards you. The man or woman that has faith in God’s goodwill has fearless confidence in God’s love because He knows that God is for Him.
Dear Father, I ask that You cause my love to abound more and more in knowledge and in all judgment, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
