Love Not Fear

     II Timothy 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. (NKJV)

    Fear can paralyze. A charging bear can cause a person to run or stand frozen in place. Decisions that are normally easy to make can transform themselves into periods of indecision when accompanied by fear. Fear is the opposite of faith. Anytime we are overcome by fear we have lost sight of who God is and his power over circumstances. Fear doesn’t originate with God. He only gives sound minds which result by remembering everything that touches us is Father filtered and love strained.
