2 Timothy 1:7

I once heard it said, “Whenever you step out in faith, the devil wants you to step back in fear.”  But listen to what the Word of God says in 2 Timothy 1:7, written here in several different bible versions.

“For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but of power, love and discipline.”-NASB

“God doesn’t want us to be shy with his gifts, but bold and loving and sensible.”-The Message

“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.”-The Amplified Bible

“For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self discipline.”-NIV

The devil is a liar.  Let’s live our lives with the spirit God has placed within us, the spirit of power, of love, and of self discipline and self control.
