I have some exciting news! If you are searching for freedom from fear and have popped over for more insights from today’s devotion, than you’re going to love this!
You can be a part of an online bible study that meets every Tuesday and is hosted by Lelia.
Beginning in March, women across the states-and country-will come together to discuss and gain insights from my new release, An Untroubled Heart…Finding A Faith Stronger Than All My Fear, hosted by Lelia.
I’ll be popping in and sharing in the discussion, too! I can’t wait to see what God’s got in store for us. I hope to meet you there!
Now, according to today’s devotion, what doubts, fears, and anxiety plague you today? Make a quick list. As you look at your list, recall this truth,
“For God did not give us a spirit of fear, but of love, power, and sound mind.”
You and I were not created to live in fear. We were created to live by faith. More so, we were given a spirit of love, power, and sound mind–a peaceful mind. Oh, just saying those two words together creates a sense of rest–doesn’t it?
You see, Satan, is a liar and a thief. He’s out to steal from us what God has given us. He want’s our peace, our power, and our love for God and His truth. If he can seal these things from us, he can keep us in the boat.
Satan, knows what we’re capable with Christ, therefore he poisons us with fear. Satan believes if he can spook us, he can stop us.
So, what do we do?
First, we must confess our fears, doubts, and worries. In doing so we are saying, “I can’t” handle my anxious thoughts.
Secondly, we must trust in God’s promises. When we trust God, we’re saying, “You can” handle my anxious thoughts.
Finally, we must cast or let go of our cares and place them on God. His shoulders are big enough to carry them. And, we can give them to God because He loves us. Casting our cares on a God who cares for us is saying, “I’m going to let you have my fears.”
