In II Timothy 1:7, it says:"For God has not given me a spirit of fear but of power and of love and of a sound mind."
God has taken away the spirit of fear from me, but I never knew how you could receive the power of the Lord until this morning.
One Sunday morning I was listening to the minister's sermon. I then realized that what I needed was a brain transplant, one that would give me power over sad thoughts and times that I had been hurt by people in the past.A transplant from God, one that would give me the power of Christ, a mind that if bad thoughts try to enter I will have the power to reject them.
A new mind that will enable me to see all the great things that God has in store for me. The power to believe the great things from God are deserved, things that God has been wanting for me. Things so great that they could only come from God. I pray that God will open my eyes that I may see glimpses of truths He has for me.
From now on I will always believe that if I hear God speak to me all doubt will disappear. If He gives me a vision, never again will I doubt that it came from Him.
Praise the Lord! I thank him for my new brain, the brain of Christ! Now I have power over the devil! Praise God! I finally am out of the devil's concentration camp, out of his prison and God gets all the glory.
With my new brain transplant, it will be like getting a brain implant, an implant that gives me a lens for discernment, for understanding, to see things as Jesus would see them, not as to see them with human eyes. To see them with love, compassion, and not to be judgmental. With this power, I will be able to love everybody just as Jesus does.
All of us have faults, needs and weaknesses that only through the power of Jesus, can they be corrected. With my new lens, I can see those needs and through the power of prayer I can rebuke them.
With this power I can love everybody, for if I do not love everybody, then I know that I am not using the power that Jesus gave me to its full capacity.
What my future holds for me, I do not know, but I do know that I will always be aware that it is the power of God, not my power that I will be using. Then, only, will I have a sound mind.
Then, the Bible verse will be complete. II Timothy 1:7 ~ "For God has not given me a spirit of fear but of power and of love and a sound mind."
Thank you God!!
