Pastor Jon’s Corner – 12th

2 Timothy 1:7 For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline

3 things have been given to us as spirit-filled believers: power, love, and self-discipline. You don’t need to be fearful or intimidated because everything you need to conquer has been given to you. You’ve been given power to overcome every force of evil. You’ve been given love to impact the lives of those around you. And you’ve been given self-control in all areas of your life. It’s the ability to make good choices, choices that impact your life in the long term and not just in the here and now. Most importantly you have self-discipline in the area of your thinking. You have a choice to dwell on fearful, negative, intimidating thinking or a choice to reject this type of influence in your life. Guard the gates of your mind through self-discipline.

Prayer Today: That we would say NO to fear and YES to the power of the Spirit.
