"For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love,
and of a sound mind." 2 Timothy 1:7
Overcoming Fear and Worry
When we ought to be enjoying victorious, abundant lives.what happens? Fear
creeps in and grips us cold. Many of us lose priceless opportunities because
of this boa constrictor of fear. When fear dominates, there is no room for
Christ Who can comfort us (John 16:33). Worry is the noxious first cousin
to fear. They will do to you what grit does to machinery - shut you down.
But God gives us the victory with His power, His love, and the gift of a
sound mind. The Holy Spirit is your Bodyguard. He walks with you. The man
who can kneel before God can stand before any man.
Jesus has you in His sight. You are in God's right hand. Write that down and
post it in a place where you can meditate on it throughout the day. Now, ask
yourself, "Knowing this, can anything this week change those truths?"
In His Love & Service,
