Fear of any kind gives Satan access to our lives. It is a demonic spirit, and we must refuse it with all our might. So what do we do when we
fear? We immediately consider God’s love for us and what His Word has
to say about the situation. When we know God loves us, we believe His
promises. Perfect love casts out all fear.

  1. Completely eliminate fear from your life (2 Timothy 1:6, 7).
    1. God is not the author of fear; it is a spirit that comes from Satan.

        3. Satan will always try to inflict fear upon us.
        4. When fear knocks on the door of your heart, let faith answer.
    3. Where there is no love, fear can freely operate.
      1. The root issue is always love.
      2. The love of God is unconditional.
      3. God poured supernatural, agape love in our hearts when we became born again (Romans 5:5).
      4. True power is found in the love of God (1 John 4:7-21).
        1. God is love; God and love can be used interchangeably.
