“For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.” 2 Timothy 1:7
The world is filled with scary noises. A lot of the scary things we hear are inside our own heads. “What if’s” fill us with worry and can make us feel like everything is out of control. But God is in control, and he empowers us to not be afraid.
Today practice running to God with your fears. He can handle it all! When you feel the “what if’s” taking over, turn them over to Jesus in prayer.
Jesus I lay down my fears before you. I know that you are God, and you are in control. I trust you with ______ that has been overwhelming me. Refill me and strengthen me so that I can walk in the power, the love, and the self-discipline that I know is available to me by your Spirit. Thank you Lord. Amen.
