For God gave us a spirit not of fear, but of power and love and self-control.”- 2 Timothy 1:7

Have you ever been afraid?  If any of us say no then we are lying to ourselves.  Fear is a natural human emotion.  However, just because it is natural does not mean it has to rule over us.  In Christ we are adopted sons and daughters of God, and we serve the one who has the power over sin and death!

 Whatever we are going through we can lift it to God in prayer.  We must not let fear distract us from what is important.  God is a God of power and not of fear.  Fear is an instrument of the enemy that is used to make us stumble.  If you do not already, I encourage you to spend time alone with God each day.  Take some time to read the Bible, and pray. Resolve today to put that fear you are experiencing at the foot of the cross.
