2 Timothy 1:7
"For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and self-disipline."
The noun timidity is related to the Latin word timidus, from timere,meaning “to fear.” In fact, fear is often a cause of timidity — fear of the unknown, fear of not knowing what to do.
Is there something you're afraid of? Or is difficult and menacing? Or even tormenting sometimes?
When something like that comes up, even if it is a problem in your mindset, say "NO!". Set your mind on things above! Yes, you may of heard this before, and you might think it doesn't work. Or maybe you have tried it, and it still seems like it's just a word.
Here's the truth.
It's just a word.
There is no special powers you gain when you say, "no."
Now you may be thinking, "See, even Amy agrees with me! I told you so." Hold on! Listen to the rest, friend! That is NOT the end of this.
As I said, there is no specialness in the word No. It is the authority you have in it. But it will never work, and I know this from personal experience, if you only say it with your authority. You see, it only works if you do these things:
1. Claim the power and authority that GOD GIVES. Not just your authority, though you have to have that too, determination.
2. Have faith. Without faith, power is useless. Even if you have an army. You will never win the battle (which God has already won, you just have to realize it and remind satan that God already won, making you win.) without faith. Faith. Faith. Faith!
And remember this truth that my Mom just reminded me of, saying, "No, in the Name of Jesus!" is even stronger.
"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
"With God, all things are possible."
