Growing in Christ: Spirit of fear
About a year ago, my now three year old son, had gotten himself lost. While attending my sister's back to school party, my son Jacob, had slipped out of the house, unknowing to us all!
After realizing he was missing and calling 911! The 911 receptionist had located my son. The receptionist said, that they did find a three year old, Hindu boy, in my area.( no my son is not Hindu! Daddy is from India, and we are Christians)
My reply was..." That is my son!" Hahahaha !
Ever since that day, I have had a fear of losing a child. A crippling fear, that often has me opting out of doing many outdoors, activities! Instead of picking up Godly wisdom on how to keep my children safe. I had picked up fear!
Today, I declare I am no longer afraid of losing one of my seven children! I chose to trust God with their care, and seek His wisdom on how to never lose a child again ! LOL
The enemy would had, love for me to stay in a state of fear! To shut down, and stop living! But God has made it very clear for me, on what He has put inside of me found here...
2 Timothy 1:7
7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
I am no longer led by a spirit of fear, but led by the Spirit of God!
