A Sound Mind

In 2 Tim 1:7, Paul explains how to overcome fear.  This verse is by far one of my favorite verses.  When I am afraid I like to turn to this portion of scripture.  It is so comforting to know that when things are tough we can overcome and have nothing to be afraid about.  One time George Mueller was praying and one of his workers came in to tell him that there was no food for the evening meal.  George did not panic, he simply asked God to supply the need and went to the main hall for dinner.  When he arrived he sat down to eat.  There was a knock on the back door and a man came in and supplied the evening meal for all who were in the hall.  We need not fear but just love God.  God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of love, power and a sound mind.  These are qualities from the spirit led and spirit controlled life.  We have love for people who we would not ordinarily have.  There is power that comes from the Holy Spirit.  Jesus said that we are to tarry until we are endured with power from on high.  Let us tarry today until we have been endued with that power.  The Holy Spirit comes with a life of self control.  We should not be led by the things we use to be led by.  We must allow the Holy Spirit to be the guiding person in our lives for the glory of God.  Your promises are: Zech 4:6, Acts 1:8, Rom 12:1-2, 1 Cor 6:19-20, Heb 11:1 & 6 and 1 John 4:7-8.  Your Insightful Sayings are:  Prayer is like a photograph.  Things become real clear as the picture develops.  Asking a fool to bridle their tongue is like trying to stop a flood with a screen door.
