<Yesterday    Tomorrow>

Today God says:
 "I have given you a spirit of power, love, and a sound mind".

He promises me:
  "For God has not given us a spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind". (2 Tim. 1:7)

My response to the word:
  God has imparted a new spirit to me in place of the old spirit of fear. He has renewed my spirit into one that is full of power and love. In place of worry and anxiety, He has given me a sound mind. "There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear; because fear has torment". Fear no longer has any place in my life at all.

My prayer:
  Lord, thank you for the spirit of love and power that gives me a sound mind as I go about my daily activities. Let your Spirit govern all that I do today.

Today's scriptures:
 "You haven't received the spirit of slaves that leads you into fear again. Instead, you have received the spirit of God's adopted children by which we call out 'Abba! Father!". (Rom. 8:15 GW) "Dear friends, if this is the way God loved us, we must also love each other". (1 John 4:11 GW) "No fear exists where His love is. Rather, perfect love gets rid of fear, because fear involves punishment". (1 John 4:18 GW)  

Quote for today:
Fear came into man's heart with sin. Adam was never afraid of his God till he had broken His commands. (Charles Spurgeon)
