2Timothy 1:7 says For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
So if you are feeling scared, anxious, defeated, hateful and vengeful, confused and lacking peace, understand that is not God. (Do you recognize a theme in this week’s blog and devotions?)
We spend a lot of time being mad at God or blaming God for the feelings I listed above when the word specifically says that God hasn’t given us any of those things. These feelings usually come as a result of our thought process, lack of time in the word or praying, and
surrounding ourselves with people that cause us to feel this way. Even if the feelings are based off of valid triggers we have to work to change them. Just because the devil attacks doesn’t mean we have to respond as he desires.
We have to take ownership of those feelings, ask God to release them from us, then actively work to change our perceptions so that we can live in power, love, and peace as the word states. It’s already been given to us, pursue it!
