"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
IN JESUS TODAY!
What great leader is there that leads his people by fear? There is none! To rule or govern by fear will not work, because fear doesn't build loyalty and trust. Ask yourself, "What would I rather receive, fear or love, or fear or power?" In every answer I am confident that there is not one that will choose fear! No one wants to live their life in fear, and God in his amazing wisdom knows this, and has decided that he will share with us his love and this love will be his power, so that we will be free to willingly follow him in faith. God gives to us this power also, and what is it that he should give us this power? This power enables us to overcome and to be more than conquerors! As it is written, "But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost parts of the earth." Acts 1:8 God has given us power, the spirit of power to become his his representatives and Ambassadors throughout the world! For this cause, and by this power we are more than conquerors, as it is written, "Nay in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us." Romans 8:37 God loves you, he doesn't want to scare you! He has given to us his love, and not fear, as it is written, "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whomsoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16
Are you living in fear today? Are there some circumstances that has you concerned? Fear not, God will help you! Jesus came to seek and to save, not to chase or to scare, as we read, "For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost." Luke 19:10 God loves you, give your fears and concerns to the Lord and he will save you! Fear not, but rather believe in Jesus' power to rescue and save!
