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.
What are you fearful of today? Are you afraid of the poor economy or lack of work, maybe you are afraid of losing your job or maybe you are fearful of your relationship not working out or your finances never turning around, maybe you tend to be more fearful of other people not approving of you or attacking you in some way? Whatever it is that fills you with fear, you can know that the fear is not from God! Fear is the opposite of faith and Satan will use it to the best of his ability to paralyze you from accomplishing what God has called you to do.
Are you afraid of failure? As the old saying goes, “you cannot steal third with your foot on second base.” We have to take risks in life in order to move ahead. If you are afraid of ever loving again for the fear of getting your heart broken you will miss out on the love God could have for you. If you never try that new opportunity in front of you by stepping out and doing it to the best of your abilities you will miss out. If God is calling you to something new, then it is time to take that leap of faith. Faith will eventually squash out your fears if you exercise it.
God wants to fill you with the power to succeed and He will fill you with His love so you can open your heart up to others and the sound mind will come as you give your fears over to HIm and you choose to believe in faith that God is on your side and moving on your behalf. Don’t allow Satan to have foothold in your life by filling you with fear. If you give satan the opportunity to he will keep you from ever accomplishing what you are capable of accomplishing in life. Don’t let him hold you back! Take your life back from him today and give all of those fears and strongholds to God so you can live a powerful life for HIm! Start today!
