Be an Overcomer

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
-2 Timothy 1:7

Sometimes as a mom I find that fear can creep up in me when my kids or our family are going through challenges.  I have found that I can either feed the fear or choose to overcome it.  I am reminded in 2 Timothy 1: 3-7 as I read this passage to look back and see the heritage that I have been given and to stand upon it asking God to increase my faith and rid me of the fear with the knowledge that “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”  I am thankful for the reminder that fear is not from God and that He gives me the power to choose to overcome my fears.  I choose to stand on His word against fear that I have a spirit of power, love and a sound mind!  Thank you God – Be encouraged today that you do not have to give in to the fear that you feel but can face it in Christ with the Spirit of power, love and sound mind that God has given you to be an overcomer!  Never forget Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

Prayer Starter
Thank you God for the assurance in Your word that we can overcome our fears.  Thank you that You provided the way for us through Jesus to be an overcomer.  I thank you for the peace that You give in place of the fear when we choose to act upon your word.  I pray that You would release those who are bound by the spirit of fear and fill them with Your joy and peace in Jesus name.
