For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline.
2 Timothy 1:7 NASB
Fear cripples us. Through science, we know that it causes a flight or fight response. We don’t have many choices with fear. But we’re not called to live in fear.
As believers, we are to walk and operate in a spirit of power, love and discipline. Thank God this is not on our own doing, but God gives this to us. We need Him!
Do you feel that you’re not walking in power, love and discipline? Maybe you’re doing it on your own strength. Maybe you’re trying to muster up enough power, love and disciple on your own to get by. But eventually, it will all fail and lead into fear.
Trust Him today. Rely on Him. You already have the Holy Spirit. Allow Him to lead and guide you.
Take time to stop and reflect on where you are, where you’ve come from and where God wants to take you. You haven’t travelled far under your own power, but with God, His power, love and discipline will see you through.
Lord, how I need You more everyday. The prayers I prayed yesterday, the Scripture I read yesterday, the time I spent with You yesterday is not enough. Give me a spirit of power, love and discipline for today. I’ll seek You for tomorrow…tomorrow.
