Too often fear strikes at us and usually it strikes at our heart. We feel afraid. When you feel afraid, you act fearful, not trusting. You look around every corner before turning the corner. You think fearful thoughts because you’re so controlled by fear. Fear strikes at our emotions, and if allowed to stay in our mind and heart, it freezes any other possibilities to a good outcome. But fear not. Timothy gives us truth that we are able to counter attacks of fear. 2 Timothy 1:7 assures you that “God has not given you the spirit of fear, but of power, love, and of a sound mind: That doesn’t sound like you’re controlled by any fear, does it? No! If fear creeps into your thoughts, quote this powerful verse, don’t entertain the thought, and keep walking in faith and confidence in your God.
