For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
2 Timothy 1:7 (KJV)
Fear doesn’t play fair. It can either push you into a form of drivenness, performance and perfection or will flat out shut you down so you don’t do anything. If we allow Fear to drive us, we are not allowing God to work in our lives. God has promised to never leave us or forsake us. With that piece of knowledge, we can seriously rely on His strength. With that security, we don’t need to worry about what people think about us, we just accept God’s love for us and everyone else that accepts us is just a bonus.
When we push past fear – we have Gods strength, we love unconditionally and we hold nothing back, and we make good Godly choices.
“. . . for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”
