2 Timothy 1:7 “For GOD has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”
With Fear’s Enemy & Doubt’s Foe!
The spirit of this world rages
against both vessels of clay.
Yet men and women alike sometimes hold it captive within…as though a captor enjoying its prey…whose own deceptive display makes it appear to their host…as if they’re THE victim.
Therefore! Internal Discernment must once again be wholly applied to demonstrate CHRIST’s Love outwardly.
Yea, it is indeed Wisdom to show HIS heart as opposed to our own versions…because Fear, Anger and Contempt are too often unconsciously welcomed.
Spoken most of all to Self, each soul must permit HIS power to humbly propel us forward as HIServants.
So when the negative emotions of Life cross our paths, we are ready to respond with HIS encouragement and redirection — using Faith filled words!
For we are NOT victims but victors through this walk! Amen? We are not to exist as reflections of the world…but of CHRIST and HIS compassion! Hallelujah!
So stand steadfast — surrendering nothing to the enemy nor doing anything to reflect their message.
Preach then our risen SAVIOUR with a zealous tongue while in the midst of this chaos!
Preach then, oh Self: “Faith in action” rather than “Faithless Inaction”.
This preach then, oh my soul…reading straight and solely from HIS Holy WORD!
As HIServant preaching confidently in HIS NAME with you,
Devotional: 1 Peter 5:7 “Cast all your anxiety on HIM because HE cares for you.” HE does, by the way, care for us beyond measure!
Romans 8:15 “For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the SPIRIT of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! FATHER!”
1 John 4:18 “There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.”
So stand in the refuge and fortress of HIS wings! While at work, home, or elsewhere…stand in the steadfast footprints of our LORD WHO goes before us!!
And! Ephesians 6:13 “Therefore take up the whole armor of GOD that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand!”
STAND then! Yes, in, on and for… JESUS CHRIST!
Amen and amen!
