Five Minute Friday: Fear

We are living in a time where our enemy, fear, is really trying to push his agenda in this world. His overall plan is to strike the heal and silence the mouth of the one whom he’s been envious of since his own fall, the Church. Everywhere I look I see fear chasing our children out of their prayer time at school, threatening religious leaders with law suits if they choose to follow their beliefs and hate crimes being committed against our brothers and sisters for choosing to voice what they believe. Nonetheless, there is a Scripture that rings in my heart when the enemy tries to stick his ugly face in my life,

“God has not given you the spirit of fear but of Power, Love and a Sound Mind”

(2 Tim. 1:7)

So, if this spirit does not belong to us, then let’s work together and learn how rid ourselves of it and put on what we are really made of: Love, Power and a Sound Mind!

About ThasiaAwad

Hi everyone! I'm so glad you stopped by. I'm Thasia Awad, author of Lord Make Me Good Ground: A Personal Journey to Cultivating the Heart and Promoting Lasting Fruit. This book was written from a personal desire to become good ground, like the one Jesus spoke of in The Parable of the Sower. Before my pursuit, I thought this meant that I had to make sure I was the most presentable, respectable and upright Christian I could be in order to reap a harvests of good rewards from God. As this pursuit grew, I realized that the way I perceived the parable was all wrong because my heart was wrong and even though I looked the part, I rarely dealt with my heart issues therefore, never truly fruitful. As this parable unraveled and came alive in my life, the Lord showed me that He was not interested in making my outward man look good, but He was pursuing after the inner man (my heart) so that I could truly be good, which I also found was no one person’s job! This journey has challenged me in every way, to dig beyond the surface of my existence and has stripped me of superficial and worldly thinking of what it means to be fruitful. As a result, God was able to reach into my inner man and confront my secret motives, desires and the bondage of my subconscious mind that kept me unfruitful. I am still on my journey but I am also on a new journey that includes helping others to become more self aware of the issues that lie deep within their hearts in hopes to begin a path true fruitfulness in their lives.

    Beautiful! Yes, we are given love, power, and a sound mind. Amazing how often we hand those gifts over and trade them in for fear.

    May we only accept what He gives and reject everything else the Enemy offers, including fear. Thanks for your post.


  3. I love that you quote this verse because it’s the one I ALWAYS return to in moments when fear threatens to overtake me. Thanks for sharing your voice today. ~A FMF neighbor

    I’m telling you this is a world wide struggle in every human being.. We actually teach our children from birth to have a certain fear with everything!! It’s time to reprogram our minds and be free indeed! This was right on the money😉
