Not a spirit of fear

2 Timothy 1:7 says “God did not give me a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and of a sound mind.
Fear can come in many shapes and sizes. We can see it as anger, we can see it as depression, we can see it as hurt. The question is what do we do with this fear. I don’t believe that it is okay to sit with these issues and not do anything about it. We also can’t expect God to swoop down and take all of these fears away when we are sitting on our hands. James 2:26 says “For as the body apart from the spirit is dead, so also faith apart from works is dead.” See we can say we have all the faith in the world, but until we walk our faith out, God can’t do anything. This is a hard lesson to learn however it’s very important. So many times we find ourselves with these walls of fear up, and we allow ourselves to become so frustrated with God, when this issue isn’t His fault! It’s our own!!
Just as Benaiah Chased that lion into the pit and killed him (2 Samuel 23:20) we have to do the same with our enemies (anger, depressions, sadness, etc.). If we actively seek out our enemies to destroy them, God will be there by our side. Isaiah 54:17 says “No weapon formed against me shall prosper.” Philippians 4:13 says “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” James 4:7 says ” Humble yourselves before God. Resist Satan and HE WILL FLEE FROM YOU! In order for the things in our lives to be changed we have to want to change, and we have to believe with the faith in Christ that things will change.
Lord I pray right now for walls of fear in any way shape or form to be torn down. I pray for the strength it takes to make a decision to stand up against our enemies and believe you are by our side. Lord I pray for a peace of mind that is needed to get through these hard times. Jesus fill us with the happiness of your love……Amen.
