Power & Self- Discipline (A Girl Devotional Series)

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.

2 Timothy 1:7

Are you afraid to speak in class? Are you afraid to talk about God to others? Are you just simply afraid of being different and standing  up for God’s word in the presence of others? If so, I rebuke the spirit of timidity, fear and shame that haunts you. I know that society does not like it when God’s name is brought up, nor do they implicate the action to spread God’s word. You see Jesus knew all about this, that is why the Lord said in Matthew 10:16; “Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves; so be shrewd as serpents and innocent as doves. Wow, this is so comforting to know that He is speaking about what we have to undergo. Now that you’ve heard the word’s of God, are you still going to be fearful and timid? If so, that behavior is a faithless behavior.

Jesus died just so you would not have to even be oppressed by these feelings. Be brave!! He is with you and will not leave you.

Dear Father, I thank you for giving me the power of your Holy Spirit. I ask for your forgiveness for my unbelief and I pray for a fearless spirit to speak boldly of your love for me.Amen.
