Leader VLOG #7!
Today, I just wanted to bring you a “discipleship moment,” if you will. This is a crazy time we are living in, but one of the joys I have experienced in this time has been speaking with people about their experience, what has touched them, and what life has been like.
This brings me to what I want to chat about today: fear or grace.
When the Coronavirus hit, one of the determinations I made right away was, “I refuse to be in fear.” Fear is not new to our world. It has always been present. We have all dealt with it. And we see it everywhere –government, school, news, even in church. So when I decided I wasn’t going to be in fear, I had to discern: what combats fear or what is the opposite of fear?
Grace came to mind. Grace is God’s ability and strength; it is God being who He is. And grace, to us, is God’s ability at work in us.
II Timothy 1:7 says, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear.”
That alone is powerful! You could take the next month ruminating on that and realize God has not given you a spirit of fear.
“He has given us a spirit of power, and of love, and a sound mind.”
There is so much living truth in this single verse!
So if you have any fear in your life, don’t take on any condemnation or guilt. Recognize it, own it, but don’t stay there. Allow yourself to face that fear, then remember what God has done in you! God has not given you a spirit of fear, He HAS given you a spirit of power, love and a sound mind. Grasp onto that.
I hope this can be a blessing to you. Thank you for being a part of this community!
