Jeremiah 39:1-41:18 / 2 Timothy 1:1-18 / Psalm 90:1-91:16 / Proverbs 26:1-2
2 Timothy 1:7
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of POWER and LOVE and of a SOUND MIND.”
That’s right! As we commit our hearts and minds to seek the Lord and walk with Him, we can take hold of the promises He gives us. With Him on our side, there is NOTHING to fear. We can walk strong and confidently asking Him to supply us with all the strength and power we need to effectively do the things He has called us to (personally, in our marriages, with our children, and as we relate to the world around us).
It is God’s kindness that draws our hearts to Him. It’s His great love for us that gives us hope for our future and fills us so we can authentically love others and, and feel care and concern about their lives and futures as well.
And finally, in a world where confusion and chaos is the “norm”, our God promises that, as we seek Him, He’ll give us minds that are “sound” - able to think clearly, strategically and with the understanding of the times. We are never at the mercy of the enemy’s chaotic barrages – we serve THE LIVING GOD who will fill us, help us and enable us to live powerfully, effectively and strong! That’s great news!
