2 Timothy 1:6-7. Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands.7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
Thought for the Day: You Need Not Fear, You Are Gifted For Victory
Reflection for the Day: God Has Provided You Power, Love, and a Sound Mind
Timothy's early ministry was filled with much doubt and anxiety. Those around him attacked him, suggesting that he was too young to accomplish his assigned task. Paul quickly sought to encourage the young man, reminding him that God had provided him not with fear, but power, love, and sound mind. It was now up to Timothy to stir up the gift that the Lord had provided, and walk in victory.
Attackers filled with accusations will come against you, endeavoring to fill your heart with fear. Refute those attacks by reminding yourself of what God has placed in you. The Lord, knowing what you face, equipped you with tools needed for victory. While the Devil seeks to have you accept fear, God has provided you with power, as well as love and a sound mind. Go forward with God, and enjoy the victory He has given you. You need not fear; you are gifted for victory.
