“For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.“
2 Timothy 1:7
It’s easy to feel like our struggles and cares have control over us – they can even effect our thoughts and feelings if we let them. That’s why this verse is so important to meditate on, because it’s where our victory over them lies.
When challenges have come my way in the past, I’ve felt that fight-or-flight instinct, and I’ve chosen flight many times. I used to believe I didn’t have the strength to fight, so running or avoiding seemed like the best option.
I was partly right. I don’t have the power to gain victory over most difficulties that arise in my life. But, God does, and He gives me all that I need to face those things head-on. Think of it: I have an extra measure of God’s power to handle life’s battles, His love to treat others rightly as I go, and His discipline to accomplish my part.
Amazing! And those things belong to us already – we just need to claim them, every day.
