We have not been given a spirit of fear but a spirit of boldness, power, love, and sound mind. Increase your boldness!
What Does the Bible Say?
“For this reason, I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands. For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love, and self-discipline.” 2 Timothy 1:6-7
In a world that will try to stifle your voice and diminish your God-given potential, there is a Scripture that resonates as a call to rise above fear and embrace the spirit of boldness.
These powerful verses, written by the Apostle Paul to his disciple Timothy, carry an urgent message for believers in every generation. They serve as a reminder that within you lies a gift from God waiting to be ignited. It is a gift that is not meant to be hidden or subdued, but rather, fanned into flame and released for the sake of the Kingdom.
At times, fear will try to grip your heart and hold you back from fully stepping into the purpose and destiny God has ordained for you. You may doubt your abilities, question your worthiness, or succumb to the pressures of conformity. Yet, 2 Timothy 1:6-7 challenges you to reject timidity and instead embrace the power, love, and self-discipline that comes from the Spirit of God dwelling within you.
The spirit of boldness is not born out of self-confidence or bravado, but rather from deep-rooted confidence in the power of God working through you. It is an understanding that your gifts and abilities are not to be hoarded, but to be shared for the glory of God and the benefit of others. It is a surrendering of your insecurities and a stepping into the fullness of who God has created you to be.
