Spirit of Power

Is it hard for you to step out of your comfort zone?

Does comparison have too strong of a hold on you, that you cannot reach out to the lost?

Are you afraid of what might be required of you if you sacrifice yourself for others?

When God calls me to minister to a hurting person, it is easy for me to fear. “Why me, God?”, I ask. I fear that I am not capable of this task. I fear that I will be hurt, or my security will be threatened. I fear what people will think of me.

Fear is the enemy of peace. If I fear what lies ahead, I cannot experience the peace that Jesus wants to give me. With peace comes power. Power to resist the temptation to give up that Satan brings to me. Power to overcome the battle in my mind that I am not good enough for this calling. Power to love the most unlovable people. When I acknowledge my humanness and the fact that God uses imperfect people to fulfill His perfect will, I will be filled with the Spirit of Christ- power, love, and a sound mind.

Whatever your answers are to the above questions, allow Christ to fill you with His Spirit. Instead of focusing on yourself and your weaknesses, look to Christ as your strength to accomplish whatever He is asking of you.

“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7
