“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)

We are prone to let circumstances overwhelm us. When we feel out of control, our first instinct isn’t to trust God but to run away in fear or fight back. God reminds us to remember His greatness and grace, and His ability to do the impossible. God tells us to stop, look to Him and listen for the assurance of His Spirit that He will guide us.

If we keep focusing our attention on the problem, will be afraid and act to protect ourselves. The phrase ” Do not be afraid” is written in the bible 365 times. That’s a daily reminder from God to live every day being fearless. God wants us to know that we can trust Him every day, even in the most threatening situations and with the most difficult people. “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and pleading with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” ( Philippians 4:6 )
