Memory Monday – Week 10

I have mentioned a few times lately that I have felt attacked by Satan. A friend reminded me of this verse. The context of this verse is during a time when Paul was suffering great opposition as a leader. He recognized that through the Holy Spirit, he was able to overcome his fears of all the negativity that was inflicted upon him by what others did or said. I just have to think to myself that that if Paul could recognize that he was not going to let all the persecution he endured bring him down and fear the things in His future, then neither should we.

We all face fears, it can be small spaces, flying, public speaking, or fear of never becoming a mother. But, we need to recognizeΒ noneΒ of these fears are from the Lord. He does not give us a spirit of fear.

God has given us a spirit of power. We can safely do His work, share the gospel, proclaim His word, and go about our day knowing we are safe with Him and that enables us with His power.

God has given us a spirit of love. He enables us to love and serve others, even those pesky co-workers, or rude doctors. He enables us with the same love that he loves us with.

God has given us a sound mind. In most bad situations, we would be overcome with anxiety, fear, worry, doubt, but God enables us with the contrast and gives us a solid mind to focus on His truth and word.

Fear gets in the way of what God wants to do with us and for us. He wants us to cling to Him and to live in this world with His power, His love, and His sound mind. When we get rid of fear and follow Him, we recognize all the ways He is blessing us and working everything out for our good.Β

    This is a great verse. Thank you for reminding us all of it. Infertility is a scary, dark road, but it is nice to know that we carry the Light of the World with us. Makes me less afraid. Thanks again for sharing!

    pinned it. πŸ™‚ I’ve been wanting to put some verses in our house, written on our mirrors (or our doorframes – isn’t that from Scripture?!), and wherever else I might see them and be encouraged. Great one.

    Yes, yes, yes.

    1 John 4:4 – But you belong to God, my dear children. You have already won a victory over those people, because the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world.

    God is SO much bigger than fear! SO much bigger than anything the enemy can thrown at us!

    What a beautiful truth.

    Also, let me know what you think of Supernatural Childbirth. I’m so curious to hear your thoughts.

    I love the thought that fear does not emanate from God. Beautiful.
