Freedom From Fear

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind
2 Timothy 1:7 KJV

We live in a generation that has ample opportunities for one to encounter fear in their life.  Whether it is terrorism, the world economy or just the daily pressures of getting through this life, it is so important for us to realize that God wants us to be free from fear.   Fear is one of the greatest weapons that the enemy can use against you.  The very reason terrorists do what they do is so often just to incite fear in the community.  So it is with the devil,  if he can make you afraid, then he can paralyze you and render you ineffective in the Kingdom of God.
The Bible teaches us that perfect love casts out all fear.  The more we become aware of God’s love for us, the more it frees us from fear.   Embrace God’s love and strength in your life and allow him to make you strong in your own weakness and failure.
Father God we thank you that your love frees us from fear, and today I accept that freedom into my life.  Help me not to be afraid of the evil one, or to simply be the person you desire me to be.
