"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)

I can relate holding onto fear in my walk in Christ...somethings I believed and in others I did not . I only realized It was fear when I hesitated to give that specific scenario to God. Now I realize with her comment that I did get backed up in a corner with that fear- but I am out of there in the name of Christ Jesus!!!

We always notice that His dealings with us are gentle, patient, & imploring. Conviction of that sin is the first sign of the Spirit speaking to our spirit that all is not well & the Mercy Seat is available for us. How privileged & blessed we are to be His precious children.

But the were dying like insect by a little mistake. In this way, the had been afraid to approach the Lord. Even animals died when the approached. Moses even said it that he was afraid to go near.They broke the covanant He told Jeremiah to let them know that he was about to make a new covenant with them which is of" LOVE AND PEACE not Of FEAR.(JER:31:33-34.)this is Jesus.Then through Jesus we are bound to God and live in peace andgo to God without fear..

If you have allowed fear to have a foot hold : Be of Good cheer God has made a way of escape : He will bring you back and help you regain control of what you may think that has been destroyed. Just because we miss from time to time does not mean that God has given up on you. He is still there waiting to help you. He will never leave you or forsake you. Now if you forsake Him then your in trouble. Run to God : He is ever merciful and more than ready to bring you back up. I have been given a spirit of power and of love and of a sound mind !!!! Before it even looks like I have the victory I still have the victory because I have the Victor who has conquered all !!!!
