Follow the Right Spirit

Good Morning Followers,

2 Timothy 1:7 reads; "For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline..."

I've been meditating on this verse for most of the morning. I'm acting on a gift and an idea that God gave me back in 2002. I know you must be thinking "girl it's 2012!" Yep, it's 2012. I've been fearful of a new area; an area that not many African American women venture into. All I can say is it was a fear of new territory, what people will say, and my lack of business savvy. What ever the case, God has not given us the spirit of fear.

Fear ties our hand and binds the minds of women today.  Fear is a spirit. We know that  the Word of God in 2 Timothy 1:7  reads "For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind." When we understand that the Father gave us power, love and a sound mind, there is nothing that we can't accomplish. We must pray and read the word to over come fear. 

Stand on his promises and meditate daily on Psalm 91. Do what ever you have to do to over come the spirit of fear. 

Psalm 91: 1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. 3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. 4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. 5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; 6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. 7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. 8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. 9 Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; 10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. 11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. 12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. 13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet. 14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. 15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. 16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.
