2 Timothy 1:7 For God has not given us the spirit
of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
We are living in a world where there is only one rule which we can
be absolutely sure about, this being that nothing is really safe.
I’m often realize how fragile our society, our government and our
mere existence is. It does not take long until fear takes a hold of
my heart with icy cold claws and, as a result, soon after my mind
is paralyzed. During one of these incidents, the Lord whispered to
my fearful soul, “Don’t you understand that, as Your Father and Creator
of the whole universe, I’m holding your life carefully and tenderly
in My hand?”
Fear is simply a waste of our time and energy! It is only when we
allow ourselves to let go of our fear that, we are then capable of
taking a hold of the power, love and sound mind and everything which
is meant for us as written in 2 Timothy 1:7.
All this is namely our inheritance from Our Father, Protector, and
great God of the entire universe.
If you are still far away from God and are living in your sins, and
do not yet belong to the family of God, then you need to know that
Jesus Christ wants you to become His son/daughter because He loves
you. He bore your sins on the cross at Calvary. You only need to come
to Him and confess your sins and repent of them from your heart; then
He will forgive you of all your sins, and lead you further on to the
water baptism in the name of Jesus and fill you with His wonderful
Spirit. This is the rebirth from water and Spirit which Jesus Christ
is talking about in John 3. It is necessary for us to be born again
of water and Spirit, otherwise, we cannot enter into the kingdom of
God. In Jesus Christ we are heirs of His glory, and all His promises
are Yea and Amen in Him. kc
