We ran across this Bible Scripture in our Bible studies this morning and it was exactly what I needed for the day and I wanted to share it with you.

"For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of wisdom."
II Timothy 1:7

What is fear, well according to the dictionary it is - To be uneasy or apprehensive about...

We can have many fears as we walk through this life. But the above scripture reminds me that any fears I may have are not from God. So why do we struggle with this 4 letter word. You may be afraid of a parent dying, a spouse dying, a child dying, or getting cancer, or someone in your family or you having a major terminal disease, or financial difficulties, losing your job, house, car, or it may be the fear of letting your children grow up and become adults and not be in your home. Or fear for our Nation.

The list could go on and on and there are many things that I could list but we all know what our greatest fears are. I know what mine is today, and it may change tomorrow[for you see I am a woman(HaHa)]. But if I will love the Lord My God with all my heart, might and soul I will have the power, love, wisdom of God and not be concerned about fears. After all nothing can come my way or effect me that God has not already ordered and ordained for my good.

Lord, help me to lean on you in all things because dwelling on fears in not pleasing to you and is not of you.

Redeemed By Your Son
