2 Timothy 1:7 – For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
Often true Christians feel outnumbered or out gunned by the unbelievers and ungodly influences around us. Unless we lean upon the Lord, our concerns become worry and the worry turns to fear. Fear paralyzes and discourages us from standing for what’s good and lovely.
Many times throughout history the saints of God have faced seemingly insurmountable odds. Time and again very few stood against vast armies. The key to their success was the power, love and sound mind given by the Spirit of God. Even if we give our natural lives, we are yet more than conquerors in Jesus Christ (Romans 8:35-39).
Remember, there are are more with us than with them… (2 Chronicles 32:7-8).
