“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” {2 Timothy 1:7 KJV}

This is an excellent verse. Today, I want to praise HIM for HIS perfect timing (as always!)

Why am I afraid???

I think that I become afraid because I am confused.

I have quite often said to HIM, “I just don’t get it!”

It’s not that I’m stupid, because I understand the Words. It’s because I can’t figure out how things are supposed to work (at least how I think they are supposed to work), or why HE’s working them the way HE is. I am a person who wants to know the logic or reason behind things. I do not like being confused!

However, I realize that this is a tremendous fault, on my part. My fellowship friend told me,CrepeFear--clasy “It is not your job…!!”

When I stop trying to be in control and let myself trust HIM, there isn’t confusion. When I remember that my part is to follow HIS way, to submit to HIS will, and DO what HE says, there is no fear..

When I read this verse, I also see that I am not allowing myself to receive the good things HE is giving me, because I am afraid.

I’m writing in the present tense, but feel like that’s not necessarily true anymore. I am not always afraid, and the fearful times are becoming fewer as I submit to HIS way…and as we are…

Gaining strength though our fellowship.

“That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.” {1 John 1:3 KJV}
