2 Timothy 1:7 states, For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love and of a sound mind. Over the years I have struggled with fear and anxiety, fear of people and what they might think, or being accepted, fear of death, health issues; you name it I have struggled with it. It is unhealthy and an ungodly focus. This type of fear can be controlling and crippling. A couple of years ago I was given the Scripture 2 Tim 1:7 as I was praying in the alter and crying out to the Lord for help to overcome the fear and anxiety. A brother came and began to pray and he said without even knowing what I was going through (but the Lord knew!) "God has not given you a spirit of fear the devil is lying to you!" He told me to pray that scripture daily and you will overcome it. I was also told by a sweet lady in our church to write in bold letters "FEAR NOT" and place it somewhere I would see it everyday for a reminder. Yes at times I do still struggle, but on those days when I feel overwhelmed I remind the enemy "no devil we are not going there" As it states in Isaiah 41:10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. We are overcomers by the blood of Jesus!!
