2 Timothy 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.
God’s children are empowered by His Spirit, fortified with His love, and guided by His wisdom. The fruit of His Spirit manifested in our lives is love and self-control. Fear and anxiety are not of God. When we are tempted to be anxious about the future or fearful about our present circumstances, we can turn inward to God’s living Spirit for resurrection power, eternal love, and self-control to overcome any obstacle. We have God’s powerful, loving, guiding Spirit present in our hearts. May this promise that we are empowered and loved by God’s Spirit to overcome all fear…bring peace and serenity.
