“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
This verse resonated to the very depth of my soul at four o’clock this morning. (Which is approx. the time I wrote this.) Do you see how there are three positives to counter act the one negative. God does that because one must get rid of the spirit with the power, the second and third will help put us back together.
First, He gave us power in the name of Jesus Christ for divine intervention through prayer and believing. That power casts out, binds, or imprisons the actual evil spirit of fear. The second, love, agape love, says, thinks, or does the right action or thought or utterance at the right time to love the person back together again. The spirit of fear intimidates, threatens and bullies people around, it makes one weak. God did not give us a bully for a spirit. He wants the believer strong. The love of God builds believing so that person can be strong again. Thirdly God gave us our rational mind which He asks us to renew and keep persistent on the right thinking, which is thinking about the love of God. Do you see how perfectly these fit together? What a beautiful thought for today. I claim this today in my life and those around me. Let’s let the freedom of living in these three powerful truths take root deep within our heart today.
God bless you today!
