For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. – 2 Timothy 1:7 ESV
Fear always tries to creep its’ little head up in our lives. Whether you fear heights, public speaking or being out of your comfort zone; I think we can agree that fear is evident in our lives at one time or another.
I use to read today’s verse and feel as if there was something wrong with me because I was fearful. Now, I find comfort in this verse. It’s not that I will never experience fear, but I am not called to remain in a place of fear.
As believers, we can tap into the power on the inside of us, which allows us to push past our fears and propel towards whatever it is God has orchestrated us to learn from a particular experience. We have the power to choose to take a step of faith regardless of our fears. When you do, God will meet you there and honor you for choosing faith over fear.
Dear Heavenly Father, I thank you for not condemning me because I experience fear but helping me never to allow fear keep me from doing what you’ve called me to do. I know that fear does not come from you so I ask that you remind me of the power of your Holy Spirit and help me to always choose faith. In Jesus Christ Name I pray. Amen.
Will you choose to take a step of faith regardless of your fears?
