|The “cloud of anxiety” that can encroach into our lives. It’s a feeling you sometimes get, but “cannot put your finger on” — one that makes you “just feel tense and anxious” that “something is going to go bad today.” Christians can find themselves inside such a fog of anxiety. In fact, some Christians struggle a lot with daily anxiety. But should we? Hasn’t the Holy Spirit delivered us from anxiety altogether? The apostle Paul claims that “God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control” (2 Timothy 1:7). So why would any Spirit-indwelt Christian still struggle with anxiousness? That’s Eric’s question, a listener to this podcast. “Pastor John, hello. If God does not give us a spirt of fear, but of power and love and self-control” — 2 Timothy 1:7 again — “then why am I, as a believer, still struggling to overcome fear? Shouldn’t the Spirit’s presence in me be the end of all my fearing?”|

3 responses to “Overcoming Fear”
As said Paul claims. Only until we read God’s word and FAITH takes over. We no longer read that Paul claims, God said so! it surely is not something we can touch. These things have been written, all these things, so by faith we may KNOW. Do we believe is the question? Most young Christians are not taught about the Holy Spirit. And what power we receive when He takes His home in our hearts. Have we been saved? If we have been saved do we or have we invited HIM in. and once in, the Word transforms us thru the HOLY SPIRIT. our Teacher.
This really ministered to me. Thank you. I have felt so much condemnation because of fear. I feel encouraged by this word.
Be sure , be quick to erase all negative thoughts. What we write upon our hearts is what we are . Because we have the Holy Spirit living within us, we have what it takes to exchange bad with good. Your Heavenly Father loves us so much that He gave, THEREFORE USE HIM!
