Scripture Verse Of The Week

2 Timothy 1 Verse 7: “For God has not given us a spirit of fearfulness, but one of power. love and sound judgement”.

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

So where does fear come from if it doesn’t come from God, why does he even let us experience fear?

Fear to me stands for: False Evidence Appearing Real. Basically something is making you believe that something that is not likely to happen is going to happen. We are the worst at telling ourselves what our own limitations are, or what others think of us, because we try to put ourselves in that situation, ask ourselves how we would react, cloud our judgment with our own nervous fretting, and before you know it, we’re stuck in a bear trap of fear.

We ain’t going nowhere!

But that’s not the way it should be. God created us with a spirit of power, love and sound mind, meaning he gave us all the tools we need to beat fear. You see the devils biggest tactic against those working for the kingdom of God is to stop them. You’ve got a target on your back, and he will do anything he can from stopping you from advancing the kingdom of God. You see, he’s vindictive, his mindset is “If I’m going down I’m bringing as many as I can down with me.” And stopping you in your tracks is the best way he can ensure the kingdom of God is not spread amongst the people.

Those whispers in the night, those harsh self doubts and denials are the enemies lies, and accusations. He plants the seed of doubt, that seed grows into fear, and that fear if not dealt with can rule us!

The good news is God gave us the power (authority) over the enemy and his lies, call them what they are, lies, and the enemy loses a foothold he has over you. God has given you a spirit of love to be the benchmark upon which everything is tested. If it’s not of Love, it’s not off God. This is a great tool for identifying the works of the enemy and the false evidence he is bringing against you. When you can see what he’s doing, you have the advantage to counter what he’s doing. The best way to do that is with…

A sound mind. God has given us His mind, His wisdom, the ability to rationalize and realize. If you fill your mind with the Word of God, nothing, and I repeat NOTHING the enemy can throw your way can succeed!

Don’t be filled with fear, Let God be light in your darkness, and watch as the shadow flees upon the encroaching brilliance of the light! Remember when you have Jesus, You have the power. And that fills Satan with Fear!

Blessings – Michael
