God Says

2 Timothy 1:7

New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.

God says I have not given you a spirit of fear.”

I am often asked how I have the boldness to be in ministry. The boldness does not come from me. I consider myself to be rather introverted and insecure. Even now, whenever I am asked to speak before an audience, teach a class, or counsel, my knees get week and my stomach starts to launch butterflies. It is only by his spirit of power that I am able to function in ministry. And it is his spirit of power that enables me to love and be self disciplined. It is not my boldness you see, it is his spirit of power working in me.

“God says I have not given you a spirit of fear.”

When God calls you to do something for him do not allow a spirit of timidity to keep you from the task. Instead, call upon God for his spirit of power on your life. You will be amazed at what you can do!

Be bold in Him!
