Be Encouraged

Allow Love to lead you.

Deuteronomy 31:8

“It is the LORD who goes before you; he will be with you and will never fail you or forsake you. So do not fear or be dismayed.”


Do not fear is probably the most repeated sentiment in the bible.

Jesus also counseled against worry and fear: “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give it to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid (John 14:27).”

Scripture also tells us that God is love (1 John 4:8).

And later in that same passage, “There is no fear in love, but perfect love drives out fear because fear has to do with punishment, and so one who fears is not yet perfect in love” (1 John 4:18).

One of my main callings in life is to communicate to all who will listen that God loves you.

I experienced this realization in a life-changing way back in 1998…and have since experienced it many more times.

Turn away from any harbingers of fear…and turn toward God who is Love itself.

You came from Love.

Love will never fail you (1 Corinthians 13:8).

So go be the Love that you are!
