Day 142 – A Spirit of Power, of Love, and of Calm
‘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)
The spirit of God that we have received has given us the capacity to live through life courageously. We can draw grace from the spirit of God in us as children of God. Today’s scripture declares; ‘God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but of power and of love and of calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control.’ When you have the spirit of God in you, you will find that you can be calm and self-controlled, in the midst of challenges and troubles. Even in the midst of pandemonium, you can maintain your calmness.
When man is agitated, afraid, timid, or cowardly this reflects a poor spiritual state. Then, you need to build up your spirit-man, by getting back into the presence of God. Spend time with God in prayer and scripture meditation. Jude 1:20 says: ‘…building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost’. Spend time praying in tongues about all your life issues, and sometimes just for fellowship with God. That way, the countenance of God gets robbed on you and the anointing of God settles in you afresh with power. You will be able to walk tall in the midst of challenges. You will be able to access divine insight that you need on the spot, with little or no agitation. Stand strong!
