Keeping Fears In Check

"For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." 2 Timothy1:7

This verse has been playing through my mind the past couple days, as I remind myself to not give into the fears that can so easily ensnare us and pull us down. Satan is quick to plant those ideas and concerns into our thoughts when we least expect it. Jesus often admonished his disciples and those who listened to his words, to not fear, but instead trust Him.

He knows what we are going through, and desires for us to grow in our trust of Him. He desires what is best for us, even if we don't always understand the struggles we face. Do you need to step out in faith today, trusting God will catch you and provide a way?
