For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. (2 Timothy 1:7, Holy Bible, New King James Version).
Apostle Paul counseled Timothy not to be afraid in his journey with God. He encouraged Timothy to rely on the power of love and logical reasoning for peace and tranquility. The phrase “fear not” has reiterated throughout the Scriptures from the Old Testament patriarchs and prophets, to the disciples, then to the churches.
When you are afraid or uncertain about decisions, God’s light still shines a glimmer of hope. “Fear not” is God’s assurance that He is with you.
Prayer: Lord, in these days of uncertainty, shine a spark of hope on my path so I will not be afraid. Amen.
