30 Days of Identity: I Am Not Afraid
Read this 60 Second devotion. Each day, based on our verse of the day, we will add one new label to our Christian identity. At the end of 30 Days, we will have a life affirming, identity forming declaration. This is life changing stuff! --- Day 10
The Word - "... for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control." 2 Timothy 1:7 ESV
A Thought - We all deal with various forms of fear that prevent us from being the people that God called us to be. Each of us has a calling on our life and something that God has prepared for us to do. Our greatest obstacle is fear; fear of failure, fear of the unknown, fear of a high personal cost. That fear does not come from God. He gave us power, love, and self-discipline (control).
What is God calling you to do? Share the Gospel? Give generously? Start a ministry? Go to seminary? What is it? If you are afraid, do you know what that makes you? It makes you human. The good new is that in Christ we are more than human. We are human plus Omnipotent God! Nothing is impossible. Do not be afraid. Whatever it is, go for it!
My Prayer of Declaration - Lord, because of You, I am a New Creation, I am Forgiven, I am Reconciled to God, I am Free, I am Loved, I am complete, I am a citizen of Heaven, I am God's Child, I am Strong and unafraid. - All blessing, honor, glory, power and praise are Yours, Amen.
Touch the Hem of Jesus' Robe and transform your life, 60 seconds at a time. - Scott
