His Perfect Love

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.
1 John 4:18

I am overwhelmed by Your love so pure,
Jehovah-Nissi, to You I belong.
From this day forward, I will sing your song.
I know my future with You is secure!

The Way has been paved, Your love will endure.
It’s in my weakness, that You make me strong.
Jesus, Your love is the ultimate cure!

Master, Creator, You’ve answered my prayer.
Healing my anguish and pain from within.
Love everlasting, sent down from above.
Sharing in Christ’s promise as rightful heir.
Deliver me now from the grip of sin.
You cast out all fears through Your perfect love!

Romans 5:5 Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

Exodus 17:15 And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it Jehovahnissi. (banner of love)

Luke 11:9  So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.
