In his book “God’s Psychiatry”, Charles L. Allen writes this:
Possessing God’s power enables us to face life with enthusiasm; it gives us a deep inward peace because we are not afraid of tomorrow. There comes into our lives an inner joy that outward circumstances cannot reach. Because God is within us, and because God is love, there flows out from us a love for others that sweeps away all prejudices, jealousy and hate.
It seems that in today’s world where false power is overriding reason, we need all the antidotes we can get. God’s power is fear’s antidote. Why not draw on it and be part of the antidote that sweeps away all prejudices, jealousy and hate…why not?
