Application of Scripture

Application – Power, Love, and a Sound Mind

“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 NKJV)

God’s power enables us to overcome the fear of failure.

God’s love enables us to overcome the fear of rejection.

God’s truth enables us to overcome the fear that comes with ignorance and wrong thinking.

In whatever way the great enemy of our souls, Satan, wants to enslave us with fear, God has an answer and a way of escape. By His power, we can overcome weakness and thoughts that we can’t do what God wants us to do. By God’s love, we can overcome the fear of not being liked or accepted and we can go where He sends us and share His truth and love with others. By having a sound mind, we can refuse Satan’s lies and trust that we are good enough in Christ to do God’s will and God is good enough to keep His promise and provide for His children.
