January 7, 2024 – 1/7/20241-Unity7-The Spirit of God2 Timothy 1:7 (NKJV) –For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and oflove and of a sound mind.Paul was encouraging Timothy and wanted him to remain faithful. Some would walk away from the faith even if times were rough and people were persecuted. Paul was making it very clear that he needed to hang on to the faith that he believed in. The Bible tells us that there are still challenging times ahead for this world and the times we live in. As a result, we need to heed the word of God through the teaching in 2 Timothy.DECLARATION: I will not fear because fear has torment. I will store the word of God in my heart until it is full and overflowing. I will not be stuck in any situation because the creator God has an answer for everything I will ever encounter.


Did you know that the word fear is listed in the Bible 365 times? One for each day of the year. The Lord wants this ingrained in our spirits and our minds. I encourage you to add this to your daily devotionals or declarations.If any situation arises, we need faith and the word of God to spring up at a moment’s notice. Some problems arise, and we need more time to read the scriptures. We need to respond at once. The word of God needs to be stored in our inner being, and when we are squeezed, it needs to come out automatically.The Bible tells us that people’s hearts will fail them due to fear, and they will be terrified. Luke 21:26 says, “Men’s hearts fail them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.”2 Timothy has included timidity, fear, love, and self-discipline. These all go together, and timidity is a lack of courage and confidence, which could make you feel stuck. We need self-discipline, which has been given to us by the Spirit of God, and we know God is Love, and love casts out all fear.So, don’t let the enemy deceive you because God gave us everything we need for this life here on earth. Brothers and Sisters, the word of God is the firm foundation, and everything works for our good!
