No FearThursday, May 5, 2016
2 Timothy 1:7
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
The Amplified Bible says it this way: God has not given us a spirit of fear but He has given us a spirit of power and of love and of sound judgment and personal discipline.
Fear is something that just comes. The important thing is to recognize that you have it and to realize that you shouldn't! God told us that when we have fear, it is not from Him! If it's not from Him, I don't want it.
I began to think about what He has given me. Power, love and a sound, calm, well-balanced mind. Wow! Now that's the way to live! It's pretty plain to see that if I have fear then I'm not taking advantage of what He has given me.
When I sense fear over anything, I tell it to go! The Word tells us to speak life, Proverbs 18:21 says "Death and life are in the power of the tongue."
Speak and keep speaking what God says about you and the fear WILL leave because God's Word is powerful and true!
