Spiritual Warfare: 'Not Fear, But Power, Love, and Self-discipline'
God's Power for Our Battles — Thursday, June 3, 2021
This is why I remind you to fan into flames the spiritual gift God gave you when I laid my hands on you. For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.
— 2 Timothy 1:6-7 NLT
Lord, I confess all my fears. I know that You are constantly giving me abilities and opportunities to share Jesus, but I’ve been too afraid to speak up. I’ve feared rejection, and I’ve feared that I wouldn’t have answers to questions. Forgive me. Fill me with Your Spirit, Lord, and give me power, love, and the self-discipline I need to fulfill my potential. Help me recognize my abilities and Your opportunities, Lord, and grant me the courage to take advantage of these. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
