Just last week a song came to me which we used to sing over and over in church, “God has not given us a spirit of fear but the Lord has given us… Power! His Joy and Peace… He has given us a Sound Mind! Never should I be: AFRAID!
Think about it. God hasn’t given us a spirit of FEAR. Our spirit is not fearful nor does it respond to fear or act out of fear because there is no fear where our spirit resides (with God). The spirit (we are a tripart being: spirit, soul, body) God gave to all mankind are “fear free zones” within us made of power, love, and a sound mind.
Having a ‘sound’ mind speaks to me of being free from agitation. Not anxious. Strong. Ability to judge situations correctly. Wise. All of which we need at this crucial time of anxiousness, confusion, and seeming instability.
If you find yourself feeling fearful right now amidst all the COVID-19 talk it might be helpful to know that at the very core of your being, the REAL YOU, is your spirit who is attached to God just waiting for you to draw your strength from a different source. The source of true strength and wisdom comes from God not the world.
Unplug from the fear and seek the source of love, power, and a sound mind.
God gave all things to Christ. He will not give any one man or movement a more complete revelation. We need each other for full perspectives, to see a bigger whole, to complete our puzzles. We can never do a complete work on our own. ~Anne
I know it’s hard to wait on God. Sometimes there is an in between time from when you are called to do something and when the actual opportunity for it appears. Don’t be tempted to go ahead anyway. Wait for the right time! ~Anne
When you find yourself in an impossible situation I wonder if you are in a test of patience. While in a test of patience you will be under extreme pressure to make a decision. You have two choices: Take matters in your own hands Wait for the Lord to act I would encourage you to wait…
