God did not give us a spirit of fear,
but a spirit of power, of love and
of a sound mind.
2 Timothy 1:7
There is always a connection between anything that goes on in Christian life and how or what we think about it. If we have fear, we process those thoughts in that fear, but if we look at them through spirit-filled eyes, we will not have that fear. For example, if I think about my own weaknesses, then I fear I cannot do something. If, however, I look at them through Jesus and His power in us, then I do not have that fear. “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” Phillipians 4:13.
So how do we gain this spirit of power and love? Receiving the Holy Spirit does not instantly make us courageous and full of love. We must grow in these qualities by yielding to God and striving to understand His Word, for it is through this understanding that we come to wield the power of His love.
