For God did not give us a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
2nd Timothy 1:7 (YLT)
So wait a minute — we’re not supposed to be weak and timid — afraid of conflict, temptation, uncertainty, and death?
Shouldn’t we be fearful of climate change, economic depressions, and pandemics?
In a word—NO.
There’s no Godly reason to fear anyone or anything. Instead — you should know with certainty that your Father has armed you with a calming spirit of love and strength.
