You ever have one of those days when nothing is really wrong but you feel on edge like it’s just about time to worry or walk into that door labeled fear again. You don’t want it to be like times before when you just went on autopilot and your day that could have been easy, relaxed and full of hope or joy turned into despair.
The Bible tells us,
“For God did not give us a spirit. of timidity or cowardice or fear, but [He has given us a spirit] of. power and of love and of sound. judgment and personal. discipline [abilities that result. in a calm, well-balanced mind. and self- control].”
2 Timothy 1:7 (AMP)
As a Christian we are taught that God did not give us a spirit of fear. If I have prayed and trust God then why am I going to put energy into worrying or making fear my home address.
It’s a choice which road we take. It’s a choice how we deal with our feelings. It’s a choice if we want to choose the Lord today or not. It’s at these moments where I pick up my spiritual journal or quietly reflect on what the Word says about who I am in Christ and what I can do. It’s at these times when I don’t let my feelings or desires lead me. When worry or fear want to mess up my hour or even my day I say, “NO”. I rest in the finish work of Christ and know my Father’s grace is sufficient.
Peace & Blessings,
