Stop being so fearful! Be Courageous!
Those people who usually get the BEST in life are usually not fearful, but COURAGEOUS. The courageous ones usually start their own businesses. The courageous ones get the best boyfriends and girlfriends or husbands and wives. The courageous ones get promotions much faster than those who are SHY. The courageous ones get opportunities to travel and represent their nation or organization.
Fear keeps you back from SUCCESS. Courage surges you AHEAD!
If you want to be a LEADER, you cannot let fear have the best of you. You have to always have a fearless, courageous SPIRIT.
Pastor Paul, a seasoned Pastor, I think imprisoned at the time, decided to write to Pastor Timothy, a young pastor to encourage him in the faith. I assume with how the GOVERNMENT SYSTEM of the day was persecuting and killing PREACHERS back then for SPEAKING THE TRUTH, and had Pastor Paul imprisoned for doing the work of Christ, as a human, probably Pastor Timothy was thinking about changing professions.
Pastor Timothy receives Pastor Paul's letter just in time with a word of encouragement. It said in 2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
That word to Pastor Timothy, is a word for all of us today. God hasn't given His TRUE children spirits of FEAR. He has rather given us spirits of POWER and AUTHORITY to thread on serpents and our enemies. He has given us a sound mind to know when to be brave and bold and when to be as calm as a lamb.
Let's stop living in fear from today. BE COURAGEOUS!!!
