For God hath not given us the spirit of fear;

My Daily Prayers and Readings for 12/03/2012

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

< >< My Prayer >< >

Abba Father how easily we give in to fear and doubt; so often without even a struggle or second thought. We allow our weaknesses to consume us; and the evil one to devour us within our own self pity and emotions – all rooted in fear and fed in doubt. Like the darkness, fear and doubt left unchecked becomes where we run too to hide. What irony  afraid of the dark we run into the dark. Unfortunately we lose sight of Your will and purpose for us; which is exactly what the evil one wants. We end up hurting and abusing the ones that You have put with us to help us most. I know of only one way out of the darkness and that is in the Holy Spirit through Christ Jesus with You. We must fight off of pity, doubt and fear, run into the light and scream out – help me Jesus. In His name, the name of Jesus Christ who lives within us through the Holy Spirit we must allow You to create a pure heart within us, and renew our steadfast spirit, for one walk in and with You. We must think of others and their needs over ours, so You can show and teach us how to be a channel of Your peace and love in all situations with all people. We must call on You to awaken the spirit of power to overcome, unconditional love and exercise sound mind by putting on Your full armor and standing firm with the belt of Your truth buckled around our waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with our feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace, taking up the shield of faith, with which we can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one who is calling us into the darkness to separate us from You. We must take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is Your word. And pray without ceasing in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, stay alert and always praying for those in need. Asking that whenever we speak, words may be given to us so that we will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel (r or l) is a live within us. Reminding us that if we get nothing else done this day, let us spend it loving You and others first, as You love us. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen. .
