Our Fears and Questions Don’t Define Us

For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love and self-discipline.”-2 Timothy 1:7

COVID-19 has changed our lives in ways that cannot be fully measured and comprehended. In addition to taking us by surprise, we are not sure about the end date. There will be an end date. In the meantime, I want to pause and take a heart check. As Christians, it is okay for us to have fears and questions. God created us to have free will which means we have many emotions. That means we are not robots. I want to encourage you to know that it is okay to have fears, questions, uncertainty and more. The key is we have to make a decision to not operate from these emotions forever. We have to remember that God has given us a space to express ourselves and to eventually surrender ourselves to him. I know I have cried tears in prayer of wonder and disappointment.

In today’s scripture, we are reminded that fear is not a part of our inheritance as children of God. We may sometimes be fearful but that is not our name and we should not answer to it. God has given us power, love, self-discipline and many other countless things. We are God’s children and he can only give good things to us. James 1:17 says, “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” So when you have a moment of fear, tap into the peace and certainty God has given you. When you have any questions, remember that God is our answer. It is okay to have feelings but let us remember the importance of surrendering them to our matchless and undefeated God. May God continue to bless and keep you now and forever.
