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.
