Who's Spirit Is In You by Keith Cook
"For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self discipline." 2 Timothy 1:7 (NIV)
Do you know that you can have a spirit in you? You really can. In this season where the devil, witchcraft, spooks and goblins are talked about with such ease it is good to know what we are really up against as Christians.
God gives us spirits. He actually gives us a spirit of power, love, and self-discipline.
We can also get a very negative and defeating spirit. This is the spirit of timidity or fear.
In our culture today it is imperative that Christians resist the spirit of fear and embrace God's spirit of love, discipline, and power. Fear is trust and faith in the Devil. That is in direct conflict with trust, which is total faith and dependence in God.
When we do not witness because of fear, we are not functioning in Christ's power.
When we are prejudice, prideful, or envious, we are not exercising our spirit of love.
When we are neglecting our devotional life or abandoning our bodies to sloth and entertainment we are rebelling against the Lord's spirit or self-discipline that He freely gives us all.
Today decide to:
1. Reject the natural and supernatural spirit of fear.
2. Embrace God's spirit of love, discipline, and power.
3. Allow Jesus to demonstrate Himself in and through you in power. Ask God to do something so awesome in your life that it is obviously Christ working in you. Chance and luck have nothing to do with it. It must be God!
4. Even now say no again to fear and the thoughts you are having as to why this will not work for you. Trust Jesus. Do it now!
