Verse of the Day: God Has Not Given Us a Spirit of Fear–2 Timothy 1:7
“God has not given us a Spirit of fearfulness, but one of power, love and sound judgement” –2 Timothy 1:7.
You have nothing to fear, because God has not given us a Spirit of fear. This we are told throughout Scripture by God Himself. As believers, we have been given a Spirit of power, love, and sound judgement (divine wisdom, common sense, and discernment), and we are commanded not to fear. So rather than being fearful of our circumstances, we are to trust that God is true to His promises and that all things will turn out for good for those who love Him (Rom. 8:28). No matter how you ‘feel’ today – no matter how things appear to the natural senses – trust in God’s Word. Trust in your Heavenly Father that you have nothing to be afraid of. The same God Who stands beside you, has already gone before you.
“Lord, teach me to be fearless. Teach me what real love is and make me a courageous and loving person.”
