Faith Not Fear

2 Timothy 1:7

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”

Do you know that serious power lies within you? Do you realize that no matter what decisions you are faced with, no matter what comes your way, you do not have to be afraid? In fact, fear is not a characteristic of God, so it should not be the characteristic of anyone claiming to be His child. Our personality should show boldness and strength as we purposely move throughout this world. Of course, there will be times when we feel concerned for a moment, but don’t allow that moment to take root in your mind and spirit.

When we listen to the Holy Spirit’s guidance, He makes our decision-making process easier. Trusting in His guidance keeps us from being stressed out and making wrong decisions. When you find yourself confused, stressed, fearful, feeling powerless, or afraid to love, know that those are not feelings sent by God Almighty. Stop, refocus on how God has brought you out before, remember 2 Timothy 1:7 and meditate on it, and then move out and do what you need to do.
