For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.
God does not give us a spirit of fear. He enables us to live bold, loving, and disciplined lives. If you feel you are paralyzed by fear then consider which voices you are giving the most attention. Is your source of information by which you make decisions telling you that you should live oppressed by fear and anxiety? If so this input goes against God’s word. He wants you to live with freedom and with joy. Consider allowing God’s word to have the more time so that you can live a life that is defined by God’s power and love.
