Scripture: 2 Timothy 1:  For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.
Observation: Why am I afraid so much when God offers me power? Most likely because I don’t accept the gift He gives me. When someone gives you something all you need to do is receive it, but you can also decide not to receive it, and that is what I do at times, refuse the gifts the Lord gives me.
Application: I need to receive what God gives me with Thanksgiving and praise, then use it each day. I have a gift of power, love and self discipline I need to use in my living and for God to fulfill the plan He has for me.
Prayer: Dear Lord I receive what You give me. Thank you for your love and all You do for me, may I use it in glory and honor to You.
