"For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline."
2 Tim 1:7
I love true stories where people overcome their circumstances to find a better destiny. Movies like The Blind Side or Hidden Figures. I love seeing what has the ability to change people or how to follow a dream no matter what.
In the Blind Side Leigh Anne Tuohy had compassion towards Michael Oher, when no one else did. In Hidden Figures Katherine Goble, the human computer, had her family to support and desire to serve her country with her talents.
Each of these women had a strong sense of determination. That’s what the Spirit of God gives us. Determination, grit, power, love and the discipline to do what we need to bring about change.
So keep going! Don’t give up!
Remember the same power that conquered the grave lives inside you. The love that caused the Son of God to enter earth is growing in you. The discipline it took to follow the path of the cross is at your disposal.
Power. Love. Self-discipline.
We are sons and daughters of the most High King! Let’s live like it’s true!
