Fear shows up in our lives in various ways and in varying degrees. We can conquer one fear, just to have another surface in a different form.
Satan wants us to live in fear. Why? Because he lives to steal, kill, and destroy our joy. This is his PLEASURE.
That is why mastering our fears is not a one-time defeat—it's a daily one. 2 Timothy 1:7, helps us live this out.
For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.
In the past year, I have literally used this scripture for so many different scenarios. Fear at work, fear for my kids, relationships, interactions, health, you name it. And each time, this scripture spoke to me differently.
God does not want us to live in fear. Which is why He gives us these gifts: the Holy Spirit's Power - to get us through life's obstacles, Love - to cover a multitude of sins; what can go wrong when you love, and Sound-Mind/Self-Discipline - to ward off temptation of negative thoughts and actions.
Whatever fear you are facing today, meditate on this scripture and allow it to free you.
Ask the Holy Spirit for direction...Love beyond what you feel in the moment...Realize your mind is more powerful than you think
You Got This!!
