I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears. Psalms 34:4

There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear. 1 John 4:18

In the above two verses, we see a clear theme. John says God’s love delivers us from the wrath of God so that we can stand before Him in confidence. Thus, the way God’s love delivers from fear, is not a mere psychological Band-Aid. There is a real material trouble, and it is removed. The same with the Psalmist. There are real threats of sickness, dangers and etc, but God removes these. His love is defined as removing material troubles. The removal of the troubles is why the Psalmist doesn’t have any fear. The removal of God’s punishment is why the elect have no fear.

This is how God loves us. This is how the gosple works. Anyone against this does not know the love of God, nor the gospel. Remove such a person from your life.

By faith we can see the walls fall down, before it happens. The certainty of the walls coming down is absolute and soon. By faith we can both praise God and reject all fear in our minds, because immediately or soon the material issue causing the fear will be removed. This is the confidence that belongs to faith. This is how God loves us.
