Do you need encouragement? #2

“For God did not give us a spirit of cowardice but rather of power and love and self-control.”

~ 2 Timothy 1:7

The Bible tells us that God gives us everything we need. Sometimes we feel we want more than He actually gives us or something different because He doesn’t answer all our wishes the way we think He should.

We know we should be thankful but sometimes we’re not. Sometimes we ask ourselves what it actually means, that God gives us everything we need. In those times we can come to 2 Timothy 1:7 to remind ourselves what it is that we really need.

God gives us a spirit of power and love and self-control. And that is what we really need in our day and age! God knows how easy we get discouraged and distracted, He knows how often we feel weak and angry, and He also knows all of our weaknesses.

And for that reason He offers us hope, because He loves us. He gives us a spirit of power and love and self-control because He knows how weak we feel. And He knows that this is exactly what we need.
