For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7
We have all faced times when we are afraid.Maybe it’s a staff meeting and you are presenting new ideas in front of your bosses, or public speaking at school or sharing with a neighbor. We need to first realize that fear is not from God. We need to know that God does not put that fear in us. Then we need to make sure we are walk in how God has equipped us. He gave us a spirit of power, love and a sound mind. Let’s pray that we would be bold and courageous and that fear would have no place in our life, no matter the circumstance. When we operate in fear, then we are not walking in the Spirit. When we trust Him and walk in His power, we will be able to make a difference in this world. The Greek word for sound mind is a calm, self-controlled mind. That is the opposite of what happens when we operate in fear. Walk in His power and peace today.
