For God did not give us a spirit of timidity (of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear), but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control (2 Timothy 1:7 AMP).
You might be finding yourself at a junction in your life where you are not looking forward to tomorrow, where particular demands you feel panicky about possibly awaits. Fear and anxiety are tugging on your being and you wonder how you are going to get through it. Maybe there are challenges you’ve been journeying with for a while now that you feel will remain a thorn in your flesh tomorrow. As if you want to say: “Oh Lord, I feel tired and downhearted just thinking about tomorrow.”
The Lord wants to remind us through the words of Paul to Timothy that we have absolutely no reason to face tomorrow with such an attitude. The Holy Spirit fills us with power, love and a sound mind. We have everything we need to face tomorrow with courage and conviction and to live victoriously from that position. Let us then go and live accordingly.
Prayer: Dear Lord Jesus, thank You that I can journey into the future in Your power. Thank You that You have given me everything I need to live victoriously.
