2 Timothy 1:7 says; "For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind."(KJV)
The scripture above makes us understand that fear is not from God. God has given us a sound mind. A sound mind makes right decisions, a sound mind is always optimistic and stable in all things.
Fear can cause distractions in life, fear can make us lose focus. Fear is one of the devil's greatest tool to get people off the track of their destiny.
When fear sets in, wrong decisions are made as a result and it changes the plan of God, the bible says that, "without faith, it is impossible to please God." Fear will keep you in a static position, it is known as bondage. You can never make progress when you continually live in fear. Bible says in Romans 8:15; "For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father."(KJV)
Faith is the direct opposite of fear. Faith does not see limitations, it does not see obstacles, "For we walk by faith, not by sight." When you walk in faith, you function with a sound mind. And success is sure. Hallelujah!
Heavenly Father, I thank you for your grace. I have a sound mind. I walk in faith by the power of the Holy Spirit. I reject the spirit of fear, I refuse to let my circumstances cause fear in my life. I have confidence that God is able to do exceeding, abundantly, above all I can ask or think in Jesus name! Amen!
