No Spirit of Fear Here!

August 19, 2022
Week 9 Verse

Here we go, friend! It’s Round 9 of our Fighting Words study! I’m going to be a little sad when it ends. The support, words of encouragement and prayers we’ve given to one another bring so much joy to my heart! 

This round’s memory verse is one of my favorites! Over four years ago, I felt the Lord prompting me to step out in faith and journey in a new direction. The overwhelming fear of failure and rejection was great, but our God is greater. It was during a walk this verse came to mind:

 “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” (2 Timothy 1:7, NKJV)

Friend, I don’t know what fear you are facing today, but know this: God gives us a spirit of power, love and a sound mind. As quickly as fear tries to overtake us, let’s turn it over to Jesus! As Ellie writes in our Day 81 devotion, “We remember that whatever we are scared of, no matter how intense it may be, is not stronger than Him.” Praise God! 

This round’s memory-verse tip is a good one! Digging deep into God’s Word is a favorite of mine, and Gena has a great hands-on approach to it. Check it out! 



Are you as excited as I am to get this round started? Let’s read Days 81-84, and we will touch base again on Day 85 (Tuesday, August 23). 

See you on Tuesday!

P.P.S. That fear that I had? It was a fear of sharing my writing with others, but God helped me overcome that fear, and here I am today!

Fighting Back!

When I’m afraid, I like to read Bible verses to remind myself how powerful God is. So what about you? When you face fear, what helps you turn that fear over to Him?
