Power for Today

If God Is For Us

"For God did not give us a spirit of cowardice , but rather a spirit of power and of love and of self-discipline." (2 Timothy 1:7, RSV)

FROM A biological perspective, fear is a natural emotion that contributes to our very survival by triggering floods of adrenaline which enable us to stand up to, or flee from, threats to our well-being. But uncontrolled fear can also be destructive, leading to physical diseases such as hypertension, panic at tacks and even more serious ailments of the digestive, pulmonary and respiratory systems.

From a spiritual perspective, uncontrolled fear can weaken us, making us more susceptible to sin. It can disrupt our peace of mind and shift our focus from God and those we serve to ourselves. And whether we choose to call it anxiety or insecurity, fear can dominate our lives.

The remedy for destructive fear is the courage that comes from knowing that the God who created and sustains this awesome universe has given us the Spirit of adoption through which we cry "Abba, Father." Nothing in this creation, not even our most fearsome enemy, death, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord!

Father, we stand in awe of Your power. We receive Your loving courage. In Jesus' name. Amen.
