For God did not give us a spirit of timidity (of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear), but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control. (2 Timothy 1:7 AMP)
One thing I know that God is for sure working in me on, is my temper. When my buttons are pushed or my feelings hurt, my tongue reacts so quickly. It’s as if it has a mind of its own! So, this power, love, calm, well balanced mind, discipline and self control that is mentioned in 2 Timothy, yea I need that, all of that. I totally receive that. God has given us a spirit of a calm and well balanced mind, so we must be careful to not let our feelings run our lives.
#AMORNINGPRAYER: Good morning God, Your Word says that You’ve given me the ability to remain calm, have self control and a well balanced mind. I receive that today! I will be responsible and react the way You want me to. Amen | 7.1.15
