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 (NKJV).
If you are experiencing anxiety, worry, or fear of any kind, rest assured those feelings are not from God. And since He doesn’t give you fear, He will certainly take it away. In fact, God gives you three things in place of fear: power, love, and soundness of mind.
Fear creates an inferiority complex in its victims. They feel helpless, as if they will never measure up. The truth is there are some things we will face in life that are scary, and we can’t overcome them on our own. When life happens and fear interrupts and threatens our peace, rather than give up and step out, we need to allow God to step in.
Receive His power today; He isn’t afraid of anything. Receive His love; it expels all fear. Allow Him to calm your thoughts. You can have the very peace of Christ no matter what you’re going through.
1 John 4:18 — A real love for others will chase those worries away (CEV).
